Comtoyou Team Audi Sport driver Mehdi Bennani is set to start Race 2 at WTCR Race Alsace GrandEst from pole position on the partially-reversed grid following the conclusion of Qualifying at Anneau du Rhin this afternoon.
The Moroccan qualified 10th for the opening race in his Goodyear-equipped Audi RS 3 LMS, defeating LIQUI MOLY Team Engstler’s Attila Tassi to the position by just 0.034s and converting that into Race 2 pole under the series’ regulations.
He will be joined on the front row by the Zengő Motorsport CUPRA Leon Competición of Briton Rob Huff while BRC Hyundai N Squadra’s Norbert Michelisz and Tom Coronel in the second Comtoyou-run Audi lining up behind them.
