Antonio Fuoco has taken pole position for tomorrow's 6 hours of Imola. The #50 he shares with Miguel Molina and Nicklas Nielsen will start just ahead of the other two Ferrari's as Shwartzman and Pier Guidi put the #83 and #51 on 2nd and 3rd respectively.



Behind the trio of Ferrari's are both Penske Porsches, the #6 (Estre, Lotterer, Vanthoor) ahead of the #5 (Campbell, Christensen, Makowiecki). Kamui Kobayashi qualified the #7 Toyota in p6, just ahead of the #20 BMW of Sheldon van der Linde, Robin Frijns and René Rast.


In LMGT3 Pole went to Aliaksander Malykhin in the #92 Porsche he shares with Joel Sturm and Klaus Bachler. Malykhin was almost 7 tenths of a second clear from the rest of the field. The Heart of Racing Aston Martin came closest and will start the race from 2nd, just ahead of the #46 BMW in which Valentino Rossi will start his home race from 3rd.



The WRT BMW's were really close together as the #31 was only 0.006s behind in 4th. Iron Dames Sarah Bovy, Doriane Pin and Michelle Gatting will start the race from p5. A good result for the #88 Mustang after their difficult start in Qatar: Roda qualifies the black Ford in 6th.
