Frenchman Tom Dillmann confirmed himself again as a great qualifier as he secured his fourth pole position in six races for race two at Spa-Francorchamps on Sunday.
The AVF driver secured the top spot with a great last lap, with his 1m59.745s denying Lotus driver Roy Nissany his maiden pole position by just 0.016s. Nissany will be buoyed by the fact that he’ll start on the front row of the grid for the second time in 2016, having done so in race two at the Hungaroring.
Behind Dillmann and Nissany on row two will be Aurélien Panis of Arden Motorsport and Matthieu Vaxiviere of SMP Racing, with both hoping for better races on Sunday than they achieved on Saturday.
Vitor Baptista continued his recent upward swing of form with the fifth fastest time of the session for RP Motorsport, with Louis Deletraz sixth for Fortec Motorsports ahead of the second AVF of Alfonso Celis Jr and the second Lotus of Rene Binder.
Matevos Isaakyan placed his SMP Racing machine into ninth, while Pietro Fittipaldi completed the top ten for Fortec Motorsports.
Race one winner Egor Orudzhev will start down in fourteenth after stopping on track with an issue at the Brussels corner, ahead only of Giuseppe Cipriani, who caused yellow flags to fly after stopping at Pouhon.
