Will Hoskins has edged out of Elroy Wagner to claim his second pole position of the season. The Franklin driver edged out his German rival by less than a tenth of a second.
It will be mixed feelings for Franklin F1 however. Despite taking pole position with Hoskins; their championship leading driver will start the race from fourteenth on the grid after a disastrous qualifying session. Nathaniel Powers looked short on pace during the whole session, and ultimately had to settle for another poor grid position.
Adrien Simon qualified in third, ahead of his French compatriot; Jean Mattson. James Harding set a brilliant fifth fastest time, ahead of the impressive Lucas Wilson Yamaha's of Hugh Dwyer and Carson Davenport. Puccio Giodano set the eighth fastest time, while Keith Boston and Lee Fuller rounded out the top ten. Jonas Phipps impressed positing then fifteenth fastest time. Scott Parsons will start the race in nineteenth position on his return to the series.
While Nathaniel Powers was left disappointed with his grid position, he wasn't the only one. Karl Beckenbauer could only manage twenty-first fastest after being held up by Diego Campos. Beckenbauer proceeded to spin the Spaniard, while a corner later Campos came to halt on the pit straight. Nathaniel Powers who was about to start his flying lap collided with the stranded Ingram; ending both drivers sessions. Gerard Alaniz also hit trouble in all his flying laps. The Meteor driver found traffic in every single lap he completed.
While qualifying was held under dry conditions, there is a slight chance of rain effecting the race at some point. While eyes will be on the clouds, fans will also turn their attention to Powers who will need to attempt to make his way through the field. Can Hoskins claim his second win of the season, or can Wagner continue his strong form and be the first non British or French driver to win a race?
