Japanese driver Yu Kanamaru added a maiden Euroformula Open pole to his already benchmark weekend at Silverstone in Sunday qualifying.
Kanamaru, who had won yesterday’s race, topped the session by three tenths over BVM’s Alessio Rovera.
He led the session at halfway point and, while Rovera briefly jumped into the lead on new tyres, Kanamaru blitzed past with five minutes to go.
Neither of the two improved in the remaining time, but their existing laptimes proved sufficient to place them on the front row.
Konstantin Tereshchenko and points leader Vitor Baptista made up row two, with the grid’s top four featuring all drivers from the championship’s top four.
Damiano Fioravanti was just 0.02s off teammate Baptista, with Tanart Sathienthirakul leading West-Tec’s charge in sixth.
Andres Saravia, Diego Menchaca, Saturday’s surprise front row starter Leo Pulcini and Yarin Stern completed the top ten.
