Championship leader Loek Hartog earned the pole position for Porsche Carrera Cup North America’s return to Canada today at the Formula 1 AWS Canadian Grand Prix.

After the Kellymoss driver topped the times yesterday, the Dutchman continued his impressive pace to stop the clocks at 1 minute 36.982 seconds for the 2.710-mile Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Hartog led MDK Motorsports duo Yves Baltas and Dan Clarke in the final qualifying standings. The front-row start for Baltas is his best qualifying to date for the former Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup driver.

Clarke is back on track at the Montreal venue for the first time since 2006 when he raced to a fourth-place finish in the Champ Car World Series in a race that was red-flagged due to rain and completed on Monday.

Baby Bull Racing’s Michael Cooper will join Clarke on the second row of the grid, with JDX Racing’s Zach Vanier completing a strong comeback for his team after the team completed late-night repairs to his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup due to contact with the wall in practice 2 yesterday.

After topping the times in Pro-am yesterday, Kellymoss racer Jordan Wallace continued to show that speed today by earning his first pole position.

James Sofronas (GMG Racing) and Moisey Uretsky (Baby Bull Racing) completed the top three, with reigning class champion Efrin Castro unfortunately suffering heavy contact with the wall.

Castro will revert to a backup car and will start from the back of the grid today.

Current Masters’ class points leader Matt Halcome set the pace in qualifying to head Chris Bellomo and Kyle Washington on the timesheet.
