Oliver Rowland held off strong opposition to claim his maiden series pole position for race two in Motorland, Aragon.
The Briton, who led most of the thirty minute qualifying session, produced a last-minute 1:39.885 to sit atop the time sheets for Fortec Motorsports. Just two tenths-of-a-second adrift in his International Draco Racing model, Pietro Fantin put his race one troubles behind him to earn a front row grid slot.
Meanwhile, Pierre Gasly produced consistent lap times throughout qualifying to sit third fastest for Arden Motorsport. The Frenchman currently sits third in the overall championship standings in his rookie season. He will be joined on the second row by an improving, Will Stevens who was a further one tenth ahead of championship leader, Carlos Sainz Jr. The Spaniard was unable to continue DAMS' unprecedented run of eight consecutive pole positions; the Red Bull junior sits fifth.
Jazeman Jaafar was the early leader but dropped down to sixth in the latter stages, fighting off a fast finishing, Sergey Sirotkin in the second Fortec challenger. Luca Ghiotto, Marco Sorensen and Zoel Amberg completed the top ten.
Despite his second place finish in race one, Nikolay Martsenko appeared to struggle for pace and the sole Comtec Racing driver finished down the order in twelfth. The Russian will need to pull of some brave overtaking manoeuvres if he is to maintain his second place position in the championship.
For the first time in her short career, Beitske Visser qualified inside the top fifteen for AV Formula but the series rookie was still outpaced by her more experienced team mate, Amberg.
The drivers return to the track for the second race this afternoon. Last year, DAMS dominated proceedings in Aragon but rookie, Rowland hopes to place Fortec Motorsports back atop the podium for the first time this season.
