Louis Schriber has been promoted to the outright pole position for the final round of the Blue Marble Radical Cup North America at Sebring International Raceway this week after Jon Field failed tech.
The former American Le Mans Series class champion had set the pace during practice and recorded a blistering 2:01.747 during this morning’s qualifying session, but was found to be under weight.
Louis Schriber inherits pole position and the Motul Pole Award, and will line up alongside Judd Miller for Race 16. Championship leader Indy Al Miller had a disastrous session thanks to a turbo failure and is expected to start from pit lane.
Points leader Gustavo Rafols set the benchmark in the PRO 1500 class recording a 2:06.836, and was a full second clear of Noah Ping and Nate Smith. Rafols’s nearest championship rival Gregg Gorski was fourth fastest in class.
Zak Ping was fastest in the PRO 1340 class with a 2:10.237, with another young gun Owen Clarke impressing and points leader Mike Anzaldi rounding out the top three.
Clarke is just one of a number of Canadians joining the series this weekend. Freshly crowned Emzone Radical Cup Canada champion Austin Riley is another making his Blue Marble Radical Cup debut.
In total 28 cars were entered for the event, which is running prior to the delayed Hankook 24H Series race.
