Roy Nissany continued his strong Paul Ricard weekend as he secured his maiden Formula V8 3.5 pole position in the final moments of Sunday’s second qualifying session.

The Israeli driver finished yesterday’s opening race of the weekend around the French circuit on the podium in second position after a great battle with eventual race winner Egor Orudzhev, and his lap with just ten seconds remaining on the clock denied the Russian driver pole position with a lap of 1:47.933.

Orudzhev was 0.333 seconds back on Nissany and will start second for Arden Motorsport, while Louis Deletraz of Fortec Motorsports was third, a further 0.266 seconds behind. The Swiss racer, part of both the BMW Young Drivers programme and the Renault Sport Academy, is looking for a strong result to try and close the 39-point gap to championship leader Tom Dillmann.

Matevos Isaakyan will start a seasons best fourth for SMP Racing ahead of Yu Kanamaru of Teo Martin Motorsport, while Aurélien Panis will be sixth for Arden Motorsport ahead of Rene Binder in the second Lotus.

Alfonso Celis Jr was the leading AVF racer in eighth ahead of team-mate Dillmann, who continued to struggle this weekend on his first time around the full-length Paul Ricard circuit, while race one pole sitter Matthieu Vaxiviere could only manage tenth for SMP Racing.
