Jota Sport will start from the pole in this afternoon’s Four Hours of Le Castellet following another impressive effort by Harry Tincknell in qualifying for the fourth round of the European Le Mans Series season.

The British driver reeled off a quick time of 1:46.917 in his Gibson 015S Nissan he’ll share with Filipe Albuquerque and Simon Dolan. It marked Ticknell’s third pole of the season.

The pair of BR 01 Nissans, running under the AF Racing banner this weekend, will start a season-best second and third overall, with Saturday’s pace-setting Thiriet by TDS Racing Oreca 05 Nissan set to roll off from fifth on the grid.

Alessandro Pier Guidi (AT Racing) and Franck Perera (TDS Racing) claimed poles in GTE and GTC, respectively, while Charlie Robertson was quickest in LMP3.

The Four Hours of Le Castellet gets underway at 1 p.m. local time (7 a.m. ET)
