Formula V8 championship leader Tom Dillmann will start the second race at Spa-Francorchamps on pole-position after narrowly beating Roy Nissany by just 0.016s around the iconic Grand Prix venue.

The AVF driver, who finished second during yesterday's first race behind Egor Orudzhev, was made to work for the top-spot as just 0.071s covered the top-three runners.

Dillmann's 1 minute 59.745 second lap was good enough to deny Nissany by the slenderest of margins while race one pole sitter Aurelien Panis' best effort was also within the same tenth as the point's leader.

Panis is joined on the second row of the grid by Matthieu Vaxiviere in fourth. Vaxiviere lost his pole position during yesterday's session following a technical irregularity with his SMP Racing machine.

In keeping with the close proximity of times, little over 0.1s could separate Vaxiviere in fourth to Louis Deletraz in sixth. Vitor Baptista sandwiched the pair to lead third row in fifth.

Alfonso Celis Jr was seventh as Rene Binder, Matevos Isaakyan and Pietro Fittipaldi all completed the top-ten runners in eighth, ninth and tenth.
