Beautiful weather, a lot of excitement and huge battles yet small gaps in the Friday training and Qualifying sessions on the first day of Kaunas Grand Prix.

The Nemuno Ziedas race track is very specific but just local knowledge and experience is not enough to secure pole position in the BMW 325 CUP Qualifying – it takes much more than that and Ramunas Grigaitis from KTK Racing Division showed that – his maiden pole in the BMW 325 CUP series and he will lead the 31 big car field tomorrow. Second row will be lead by championship leader, Frenchman Leo Messenger from Rode Racing. Third spot goes to by Dream 2 Drive pilot Julius Kirsis and next to him – Izidorius Paukstys. Fifth Paulius Urbonavicius, sixth – championship viceleader Ricards Subeckis.
