Parente Takes Pole 1 at Silverstone

Alvaro Parente continued his domination of the British Formula Three International Series, by taking pole for the first of Sunday's races at Silverstone

Parente Takes Pole 1 at Silverstone

The Portuguese driver currently leads the Championship by a massive 56 points and lapped the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in one minute and 42.722 sseconds, just edging out Hitech Racing's Marko Asmer.

Parente's teammate and title-rival Charlie Kimball will line up third on the grid alongside Fortec Motorsport's Mike Conway. The Lola pairing of Danilo Dirani and Stephen Kane make up the third row, in a qualifying session where the top nine cars were covered by 0.9 seconds.

Kane goes into the weekend knowing he will start tomorrow's race on pole position, because Saturday's race will use the grid from the second cancelled round at Spa. Drivers who did not qualify in that session in April are not eligible to start the race.

Salvador Duran took the National Class pole position for Sunday's first race.
