For the second race in a row Dale Coyne Racing’s Katherine Legge saw her qualification efforts dogged by heavy traffic and errors.
Just as in Belgium, she felt a top-10 grid position in Champ Car’s Grand Prix of Holland had eluded her.
She posted the ninth fastest speed (125.377 mph) during the 15-minute practice session – a big confidence boost for her team as earlier in the Saturday morning practice she had made contact with the wall due to wet track conditions and did minor damage to the left front wheel.
“It was a really tough session for us today,” said Legge. “I feel that we should have been in the top-ten pretty easily, but I could never get more than a couple laps put together in qualifying because there was always somebody spinning off the course in front of me and I also had an excursion over the chicane that messed my time up as well.”
She was upbeat for her race prospects: “I’m pretty confident that we have a really good race car for tomorrow.”
