Jacob Eidson and Sandy Mitchell will each start one of Friday’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America races from pole after going quickest in qualifying at Jerez on Thursday afternoon.
Pro-Am champion Eidson went quickest overall within the North America field in Qualifying 1, putting his and Damon Ockey’s US RaceTronics car (pictured above) at the front of the field for Race 1.
Sandy Mitchell will line up first for Race 2, the final round of the North America season, with his and Andrea Amici’s Prestige Performance car.
Super Trofeo North America competitors shared Thursday afternoon’s pair of 20-minute qualifying sessions with their Asian counterparts, and the two series will again share the field in their two races on Friday.
Comparative times between North America and Asia competitors aren’t important, with the two fields competing for their own honors and no award given on Friday for the best of the two.
The two fields will have separate starts in both races.
Eidson’s lap time of 1:42.043 was enough to top the North America field in Qualifying 1, while Paolo Ruberti had the quickest Pro car, qualifying second ahead of Amici.
Steven Aghakhani and Ashton Harrison took the Am and LB Cup poles for Race 1.
Mitchell’s Qualifying 2 performance put him 0.871 seconds clear of his closest rival Cedric Sbirrazzuoli, who will line up second.
Patrick Liddy picked up the Pro-Am pole, while Aghakhani doubled up in the Am class and Chad Reed secured LB Cup honors.
The pair of title-deciding Super Trofeo North America races will take place on Friday at 10 a.m. local time (4 a.m. EDT) and 3:05 p.m. (9:05 a.m. EDT).
Competitors will then return to action on Saturday and Sunday, competing directly against their European and Asian counterparts in the World Final races.
