Spa qualifying 1 - Jani takes 5th pole.

Due to the 24 Hours of Spa the usual format of the FRV6 week end has been modified : The sprint race is scheduled on Friday at 14.40 while the Grand race will keep the Saturday morning live on Eurosport at 11.20. Also other sessions have been moved and the first qualifying for the Sprint race was scheduled today at 17.15.

For the 5th time in 6 qualifying sessions in a row, Neel Jani took pole position. Neel did not keep the gap of 4 tenths he had over Sharp in the morning free practice and the young British driver managed to set exactly the same time as the DAMS driver. The benefits of the pole position goes to Jani as he set his time earlier in the session.

Neel Jani 1st : "This morning the car was very good and I knew I would not improve a lot. We deserve this pole as we have dominated the previous sessions and every body did a fantastic job."

Bruce Lorgere-Roux 11th : "I feel better with braking this week end but I need to take more from the new tires..."

Memo Rojas 14th : "I am very disappointed because we did some big improvements this morning after the time lost yesterday. On my first qualifying lap I was a little bit too safe because we did not have enough references with the car. I pushed harder after that but I missed my braking on the chicane, I could not improve then..."

Friday 30 July 14.40 : Sprint Race
Saturday 31 July 11.20 : Grand race (live on Eurosport)
