Melker and Merhi clinch Valencia poles
30 September 2011 – Nigel Melker and Roberto Merhi have picked up the two pole positions which were on offer in the Formula 3 Euro Series qualifying session on Friday afternoon.

Marco Wittmann of Germany, the only driver who can still beat Merhi to the crown, could manage no more than one sixth and one seventh position for Signature - further helping the top Spaniard’s cause.
