Porsche will lead off the second round of the 2015 World Endurance Championship at Spa-Francorchamps after qualifying 1-2-3 in its first weekend with three cars.
The #17 919 Hybrid will start from pole position thanks to the combined efforts of Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley in the car they will share with Mark Webber, the duo posting an average time that would place them comfortably ahead of its rivals and team-mates by three tenths.
Impressively it was the new third Porsche of F1 driver Nico Hulkenberg and Nick Tandy that would secure its spot on the front row, the pair coming together to head off the regular #18 car of Marc Lieb and Neel Jani.
Separated by 0.001secs but eight tenths off the pole time, Audi will start in fourth and fifth, the #7 machine beating the '#8 car, while Toyota again floundered in the dry, the depleted two driver line-up of Sebastien Buemi and Anthony Davidson – following Kazuki Nakajima's injury – ending up sixth.
In the LMP2 class, the #26 G-Drive Ligier is best placed to increase its series lead after qualifying on pole, just ahead of the KCMG Oreca and the SARD Morand Morgan, this weekend making its debut having been forced to miss the opener at Silverstone.
In the GTE class, the #99 Aston Martin will start from pole position courtesy of Fernando Rees and Richie Stanaway's efforts, the pair doing just enough to edge out the leading AF Corse Ferrari of Gimmi Bruni and Toni Vilander, while row two will take on a similar looked with the #97 Aston Martin of Darren Turner, Stefan Mucke and Rob Bell in third, with Ferrari's James Calado and Davide Rigon in fourth.
Similarly, Aston Martin also topped the GTE Am class with Paul Dalla Lana, Pedro Lamy and Mathias Lauda.
