Having suffered the ignominy of seeing Oliver Jarvis claim Great Britain's first A1 Grand Prix triumph in 40 attempts in Mexico, Robbie Kerr is well placed to join his team-mate on the winner's list after claiming pole position in China.

Only the team's second pole position since the series' conception, Kerr's pace in practice had suggested he would be challenging for the top spot, although it took a late effort from the Brit to deny New Zealand's Jonny Reid.

Nonetheless, that effort was a magnificent one, Kerr managing to undercut Reid's best time by an unprecedented five tenths to cement a fully deserved pole position.

"I'm really happy with the way qualifying went," stated Kerr. "The car got quicker throughout the session as we made a few changes to it overnight which unfortunately didn't work as expected, we then found ourselves re-engineering it as the session went on.

With New Zealand's second place in the standings well within Kerr's sights, he is eager to produce as strong a results as possible, not only for the team but also for himself as he seeks to hold onto his drive for the up coming home round at Brands Hatch.

"I know where there's still a couple of tenths in myself and I'm confident that we'll be competitive tomorrow. We've just got to go out there and focus on the job in hand and bring the car home in a good points scoring position."
