Patrick Kujala and Richard Antinucci have scored poles for Friday’s pair of Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America season-ending races in Valencia.

The two 50-minute races close out the 2016 Super Trofeo season prior to this weekend’s World Final, also held at the Spanish track.

Kujala took his No. 117 US Racetronics Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo to the top of the time charts in qualifying for Round 11, having reeled off a quick time of 1:31.784, the quickest of the day.

The defending World Final champion, who is pulling double-duty between the North American and Europe series this weekend, will share driving duties with Brian Thienes in the Pro-Am class entry.

Antinucci, making a return to Change Racing, qualified second for Round 11, after topping the time charts in both mixed-condition Free Practice sessions on Thursday morning.

The No. 118 DAC Racing Lamborghini of Emmanuel Anassis was third, followed by newly crowned Pro class champion Shinya Michimi in fourth.

Damon Ockey completed the top-five overall, quickest of the Am class competitors for Round 11.

Antinucci, meanwhile, will start Round 12 from the pole, thanks to his 1:32.200 lap time in the No. 116 Change Lamborghini.

He edged out the the No. 27 Change Racing entry of Cedric Sbirrazzuoli by 0.986 seconds, with Anassis set to start third, as is the case for Round 11.

Max Wiser was fourth quickest, and best of the Asia series competitors, which are running combined with the North America races this weekend.

The second 15-minute qualifying session saw a brief red flag for the Asian No. 218 Lunacea entry, which stopped on course in Turn 9.

Round 11 gets underway Friday at 8:50 a.m. local time (2:50 a.m. ET), followed by Round 12 at 1:35 p.m. local (7:35 a.m. ET). Both races will be streamed live on
