Swedish star Antonio Lindback admits a relaxed approach to qualifying helped him clock the fastest time as he earned first pick of starting positions for the ANLAS Czech Republic FIM Speedway Grand Prix.
The Rio Rocket blasted to a time of 15.194 seconds to top Friday‰Ûªs qualifying charts at Prague‰Ûªs sun-soaked Marketa Stadium.
This allowed him to pick starting position No.5 for Saturday‰Ûªs ANLAS Czech SGP, offering him two starts from the inside in red ‰ÛÒ the gate which has often produced the most Prague race winners.
Lindback admits he went out to enjoy Friday‰Ûªs session, and believes that helped him go fastest.
I went into practice and qualifying not focusing too much on it. I just wanted to go out, get a feel for the bike and have a good time. Sometimes when you don‰Ûªt think about doing something, you do well.
‰ÛÏWe found a good time in the end. It was still only qualifying ‰ÛÒ the important day is Saturday, so I‰Ûªll just take it as a fun day.‰Û
