Adrien Simon has ended Franklin's record run of six consecutive pole positions by pipping Elroy Wagner in the dying seconds of the session by just over a tenth and a half to take pole position for his home V-Prix.
Simon was sitting fourth before his lap, with Wagner on pole from Giodano, but another late lap from Domenicalli earned him third on the grid between the pair, and ensured a Rossi second row lock-out as they continue their upwards climb. Elsewhere a poor session for Ruiz will see him start 11th.
Beckenbauer could only manage 9th in the second Liverpool but FUN had a much better session than of late, Davenport qualified 12th with Agostino 15th. Harrison was the best Meteor in 14th with Parsons 17th, but the two AMR's struggled, Nakumaya and Beyer either side of the Brit respectively.
The back of grid has the Noah's Ark effect, as the two Oceot's - led by Sikes - knocked the two Warriors of Osterhagen and Harding respectively onto the back row.
Liverpool will be looking for a strong race in what is their final race with Vauxhall - especially Simon and Vauxhall's replacements DS Automobiles who are both at home - while Beckenbauer will also be looking for a result in what will be his penultimate race for the team before Kip Maxwell takes over in Britain and Karl gets the seat back for one race in his home event of Germany before switching to Warrior. Ruiz will also be looking to continue the momentum of his first win of the season, but it'll be tough from 11th on the grid.
