The grandstands were painted in support of Enrique Ruiz, the Brazilian's racing hero. With so much pressure on the young Brazilian, racing for the world championship in front of his home crowd he managed to brush it all side and set the fastest time of the session. However during the dying moments Adrien Simon set a time of 1.17.138 to snatch pole position and relegate Ruiz to second. Will Hoskins managed to set the third fastest time, however very crucial. If Enrique Ruiz manages to outscore Will Hoskins by at least five points this race; the championship will go down to the wire in Mexico. If they finish where they start tomorrow, Will Hoskins will be the world drivers champion.
Nikolai Milkovich once again impressed, this time posting the fourth fastest time of the day. The Russian just edged out Karl Beckenbauer, whom will have to settle with fifth on the grid on race day. Marcus Thunder was sixth for Downton, while Elroy Wagner was seventh quickest for Team 23. In potentially his last race as the reigning world champion, Nathaniel Powers will start the race from eighth. Jean Mattson will start from ninth, ahead of Tumo Kinnumen who will start from tenth.
Lewis Ellington was eleventh fastest for Peugeot; the Englishman will srart ahead of Romano Agostino in twelfth, Enzo Domenicalli in thirteenth, and Carson Davenport in fourteenth. Diego Campos will start the race eleven grid spots down the grid then his teammate in fifteenth. Kurtis Gardner was the sixteenth quickest driver of the day, ahead of Puccio Giodano, Ivan Lesic, and Hugh Dwyer. Abel Osterhagen will start from twentith in his Warrior ahead of his teammate James Harding. Keith Boston had a miserable qualifying session only edging out the Force Australia's of Hiroto Nakumaya and Felix Beyer.
Weather reports suggest that we may have a slight chance of rain effecting the race tomorrow. Enrique Ruiz will know that he must pull five points over his teammate Will Hoskins to take the championship fight to the final round in Mexico. If the Franklin pair finish the race where they started, Will Hoskins will take his first world drivers championship. Stay tuned for one of the most crucial races of the season. Who will be this years champion?
