FIA WEC: Le Mans Hyperpole, Toyota take 1-2

Brendon Hartley in the No. 8 Toyota Gazoo Racing GR101 Hybrid has claimed overall pole position for the 90th running of the Le Mans 24 Hours, with his team mate Kamui Kobayashi taking 2nd place in the sister No. 7 car.

Nicolas Lapierre took third for Alpine with a best lap of 3:24.850, which sat at the top of the timesheets until improvements from both Toyota knocked it down to third and Ryan Briscoe was fourth for Glickenhaus, with team mate Olivier Pla rounding out the top five.

In LMP2 there was again a 1-2 for team mates, with Team WRT claiming pole and second. Robin Frijns took the top spot with Norman Nato some 1.3 seconds behind in second. Filipe Albuquerque secured third for United Autosports, with Antonio Felix da Costa fourth. The JOTA driver was fastest after the first set of laps, but was demoted to the edge of the second row by the three fastest drivers.

The 1-2's did not stop there with Corvette Racing locking out their class with the No. 64 of Nick Tandy taking pole, 2 tenths faster than his team mate Antonio Garica in the number 63.

As Fred Makowiecki was third in the No. 91 Porsche 911 RSR-19, Laurens Vanthoor was fourth, with Antonio Fuoco and James Calado in AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE Evo's rounded out the GTE-Pro Class.

In the LMGTE Am class, Vincent Abril's AF Corse Ferrari shades Mikkel Jensen's Kessel Racing car to give the Prancing Horse a front-row lockout. The No.98 Northwest AMR Vantage of Nicki Thiim is third, followed by Harry Tincknell for Dempsey Proton Porsche.
