Norbert Kiss almost completed a clean sweep of pole positions in 2022, taking the final one of the season in Jarama.

Looking to Promoter’s Cup, Jamie Anderson will start ahead of rival Téo Calvet, but a lot needs to go in the Brit’s favour to prevent Calvet taking the title with one race to spare.

Setting a lap time that was two tenths off the truck lap record at Circuito Jarama, it was clear Kiss had qualifying once again in the bag. This means that, had he not been disqualified from Nürburgring Qualifying 2 on a technical issue, the Hungarian champion would have taken every single pole position of the year. However, Kiss didn’t finish the season with the one second advantage he has been, instead only four tenths up on second place.

The front row honours were taken by Adam Lacko, who is in a battle with Sascha Lenz in the overall standing to try and take third place. Lenz starts just behind Lacko in third, so this pair will be one to watch in Race Three.

Home favourite Antonio Albacete was fourth, ahead of current second in the standings Jochen Hahn. His closest rival – Lenz – does start ahead of him for Race Three, but Hahn’s advantage in the championship means he should comfortably hold onto second place behind Kiss.

Anderson took the final Promoter’s Cup pole position, two tenths faster than title rival Calvet, who starts second in class, seventh overall. Albeit starting in front, Anderson needs Calvet to come home fifth or lower in class to keep the title fight going to the final race of the year. The next closest Promoter’s Cup challenger is José Rodrigues, starting tenth on the grid. He is split by his fellow Chrome drivers by Steffi Halm and André Kursim.

Still slightly plagued with the issues of yesterday, Shane Brereton could do no better than 11th, missing out on a final Super Pole appearance by six tenths of a second. He starts ahead of John Newell, Johnathan André and Clemens Hecker for Race Three.

Steffen Faas will start from the back of the grid after not competing in qualifying due to a gasket issue.

Race Three begins at 13:20.
