After qualifying 11th, Pierce Lehane has dropped to 21st in the rankings after the heats at the Rotax Winter Cup in Spain. He carded 9th, 6th and 22nd in the heats ("Tough day with a first corner crash in first heat, engine miss fire in second heat and wrong tyre choice in the 3rd heat" he stated). Joseph Reilly (Tony Kart) will start the pre-final from pole. So far Senior MAX has been dominated by OTK brands. In qualifying, Josh Price (ART - after late swap from Tony Kart, 6th) and Ed Brand (Intrepid, 9th) were the only non-OTK driver in the top 26! Results and live timing HERE.
