Yann Ehrlacher takes pole position ahead of the final round of the 2021-22 Andros eTrophy.
Ehrlacher beat fellow championship contender Jean-Baptiste Dubourg to the top of the order in Super Pole, securing his place on pole for the Super Besse Super Final.
The pair were joined by long-time championship leader Aurellien Panis and World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb in the Super Final.
Dubourg was quickest in both qualifying sessions. He managed a time of 2m22.831s in the morning session. Times were much quicker in Qualifying 2, but Dubourg kept up with the pace to end the session with a 2m15.656s time to go ahead of Erhlacher and Panis.
The same pace wasn’t to be found in the Super Pole session, where a 45.246s lap was only quick enough for fifth fastest.
This gave an opportunity for Ehrlacher and Pierre-Louis Loubet, who was second quickest in the first qualifying session.
Ehrlacher went quickest of anyone in the session, managing a 44.734s time to put him ahead of Dubourg on the grid. Loubet had a difficult session which left him starting P5 for the Super Final.
Panis will start third on the grid to make it the top three drivers in the championship at the front of the grid.
Nathaneal Berthon also made it through to Super Pole and will start fourth.
Loeb – competing in a one-off event between his 80th WRC victory ant the start of the Extreme E season – was fifth fastest in both qualifying sessions, securing a position in Super Pole. In the final session, he managed to go fourth quickest, ahead of Dubourg by just 0.002s. He placed sixth overall.
They will be joined by Christophe Ferrier in the Super Final.
Dorian Boccolacci leads the way in the Final after placing eighth overall ahead of Olivier Pernaut and Jeremy Sarhy.
