Thomas Biagi scored his first International Superstars Series pole position for two years in qualifying at Monza, while his gentleman driver teammate Sandro Bettini surprised to make it a 1-2 for Team BMW Dinamic.

Johnny Herbert initially held provisional pole in his Swiss Team Maserati Quattroporte, but he was displaced by series debutant Camilo Zurcher. The Colombian Romeo Ferraris Mercedes driver was close to a shock result before the BMW duo moved ahead at the very end of the session.

Mugello local Bettini ended up just 0.042 seconds shy of Biagi, and looks set to improve on his best result so far this year of tenth. Zurcher meanwhile was just 0.159s away from pole in his first Superstars qualifying session.

Herbert was fourth, ahead of Gianni Morbidelli, who's Audi RS5 is running 100kg heavier and using an air restrictor following its domination of the last round at Donington Park.

Andrea Larini finished up three places behind his teammate Zurcher in sixth, ahead of points leader Johan Kristoffersson in the second Audi.

Stefano Gabellini had topped the first practice session in the pacesetting BMW M3 but was half a second adrift of his teammates in qualifying and had to make do with eighth. Paolo Meloni was ninth in his older specification BMW, with Vitantonio Liuzzi a disappointing tenth in his CAAL Racing Mercedes.
