Lando Norris secured his first pole position of the 2016 Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup season during the second qualifying session at Silverstone on Friday.

The Josef Kaufmann Racing driver was one of five drivers to get beneath the pole position time set by Max Defourny for race one, with his time of 1m57.079s the best time of the weekend seen so far.

Norris will be joined on the front row for Sunday’s second race by fellow Briton Will Palmer, with the R-ace GP racer just 0.289s adrift of the pole time, while Dorian Boccolacci will start from third for Tech 1 Racing, another 0.019s back on Palmer.

Race one pole sitter Defourny will start race two from fourth on the grid for R-ace GP, while fifth went to Jehan Daruvala of Josef Kaufmann Racing, with the Indian driver being joined on the third row of the grid by the third of the R-ace GP drivers Julien Falchero.

Vasily Romanov qualified his Fortec Motorsports machine in seventh ahead of Mark Burdett Motorsport’s Alex Gill, while Callan O’Keeffe of JD Motorsport and Sasha Fenestraz of Tech 1 Racing completed the top ten.

Finlay Hutchinson, the fourth of the British racers on the grid this weekend, will line up down in nineteenth for race two.
