In a ‘death or glory’ lap Jean Glorieux put his #3 DKR Engineering Duqueine M30 – D08 on pole for this afternoon’s first race of the season. Luckily, his fastest lap was set earlier in the session as the car stopped on track with a propshaft failure so the team now has a few hours to get it repaired and onto the grid. Second spot went to the #37 Cool Racing Ligier JS P320 and third was Rinaldi Racing’s #55 Duqueine.
