With almost a second advantage on the rest of the field, Norbert Kiss has continued his 2022 qualifying performance with his 14th pole position.

The 1:58.070 was set by the Hungarian at the start of the Super Pole session, never looking under threat to be beaten. Although in a class of its own, the time was seven tenths off the lap record around Circuito Jarama, set by Jochen Hahn in 2017. The lap record holder will start alongside the 2022 Drivers’ Champion, with his 1:59.036 three tenths up on home favourite this weekend Antonio Albacete.

Sascha Lenz, who ended the first 20 minutes of qualifying second fastest, was fourth on the timing board at the chequered flag, three tenths up on Promoter’s Cup pole sitter Téo Calvet.

Calvet and Jamie Anderson – who lines up seventh on the grid – are in the only remaining championship battle to be decided. Calvet leads the Promoter’s Cup at this stage, and all he needs to do to claim the title, is finish second in the Promoter’s Cup standings in every race. The pair will be split at the start of Race One by Calvet’s Buggyra Racing teammate Adam Lacko in sixth.

Andre Kursim, Steffi Halm and Jose Rodrigues completed the top ten.

Steffen Faas, who was knocked out of Super Pole by 0.009, starts the first race of the weekend 11th ahead of Shane Brereton, who suffered engine issues during the practice session ahead of qualifying. John Newell was 12th fastest ahead of Clemens Hecker and Johnathan Andre who returns to the Goodyear FIA ETRC after racing in the French Championship last weekend at Le Mans.

Lights go out for Race One at 15:20 local time.
