Tarquini secures Marrakech pole for Honda

The second JAS Castrol Hond Racing car of Tiago Montiero qualified a disappointing 14th, having crashed in the first session with right front damage to his Civic, having got the car crossed up on the chicane kerbs.

The BMW's of Franz Engstler and Freddy Barth made their way round to 15th and 16th, Barth taking some adventurous lines round the African track. Norbert Michelisz struggled with braking issues, also having to play catch up after an exhaust mount caught fire in practice, but getting through to 17th. Local hero Mehdi Bennani had a harmless spin en-route to a disappointing 18th.

Completing the rest of the field in positions 19 through to 23 are Tom Boardman, Charles Ng, Stefano D'Aste, Mikhail Kozlovskiy who is replacing ALeksei Dudukalo for the remainder of the season, and Rene Munnich, who suffered with various issues in his SEAT.
