Kimball on Silverstone Pole

The American Carlin Motorsport driver is the only man in the field trying out the Mugen XJ6 engine, which is making its British debut this weekend. He headed P1 Motorsport Lola driver Danilo Dirani, who will be looking to end the season as he started it, with a double win.

Dan Clarke (Double R) and Marko Asmer (Hitech Racing)will share the second row, ahead of Bruno Senna and a surprisingly fast Karl Reindler, who turned in his best qualifying performance of the year.

Charles Hollings took National Class pole for the season finale, while title protagonists Barton Mawer and Salvador Duran are second and third.
