1 Mins read

Kevin Jörg set the pace in Saturday qualifying for race one of the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Championship around the Bugatti circuit at Le Mans, heading Josef Kaufmann Racing team-mate Louis Deletraz.

Jörg topped his group of the two part qualifying to secure his maiden series pole position, with team-mate Deletraz coming up 0.139s shy in his group, with the Swiss duo locking out the front row as a result.

Racing Steps Foundation-backed Ben Barnicoat will start third for Fortec Motorsports, and will be looking to build on his maiden series win two weeks ago at the Nurburgring, while fourth on the grid will be the leading Koiranen GP entry of fellow Briton Jack Aitken.

Harrison Scott makes it a trio of Brits inside the top five with fifth for AVF, with Ukyo Sasahara sixth for the ART Junior Team ahead of Manor MP Motorsport’s Dennis Olsen, while Tech 1 Racing’s Antoine Hubert and Simon Gachet are eighth and ninth ahead of Fortec Motorsports’ Valentin Hasse-Clot.

Deletraz currently holds a slender advantage in the championship over Jörg in the championship, with Aitken, Jake Hughes (who could only qualify thirteenth) and Hubert all in contention for the title with five races of the season remaining.
