1 Mins read

Reigning champion Jeroen Bleekemolen fired a clear warning shot to his rivals after securing pole position for the third round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in Barcelona.

Following the 30 minute session Bleekemolen topped the time sheets with a time of 1:50.102, with his nearest challenger British driver Sean Edwards who was 0.302 seconds behind.

“I'm very happy with my first pole position of the season.” said Bleekemolen. “The team really deserves this. Yesterday in free practice we weren't very pleased, but obviously today we hit the right note and changed the right things.”

Sean Edwards remained positive after just missing out on the top spot. “Just one off pole – I can easily live with that.” he said. “We've made great strides since the beginning of the season – thanks to my whole team. I'm confident we can repeat our good qualifying result in the race tomorrow. Then everything is possible.”

2008 race winner Japp van Lagen marked his return to Supercup with a strong fourth place on the grid, just behind Norbert Siedler. Fellow Duthman Patrick Huisman would finish the session just behind with Brit Nick Tandy making up the top six.

Championship leader René Rast, who dominated the first two races of the season in Bahrain, didn’t have it all his own way in Barcelona after he could only manage seventh fastest time alongside fellow German Jan Seyffarth.

2009 Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion Tim Bridgman qualified ninth fastest and despite feeling he could of done better starts the race in a promising position. Slovakian Stefan Rosina made up the numbers in the top ten.
