Double pole for Michel Frey and Race Performance Revolution A-One

Double pole for Michel Frey and Race Performance Revolution A-One

This weekend, the Sports Prototype Cup returns to the Formula 1 support programme with two 35 minute sprint races at Monza.

Qualifying for both races took place on Friday, with Michel Frey taking pole for both races in his Race Performance Revolution A-One. The Swiss is one of the most experienced drivers on the grid having raced in the FIA World Endurance Championship, European Le Mans Series and Le Mans 24 hours. His double pole puts him in a strong position to repeat his Portuguese GP 2020 Sports Prototype Cup support race win.

Jesse Menczer lines up alongside after a storming late effort to put his Revolution Works Team car second on the grid. The San Diego based driver has several wins In Italian Prototype Racing so put his Monza knowledge to good use. He’s also three time Radical North America SR8 Champion and is relishing the fight for victory. He just pipped Revolution development driver, James Abbott, to a front row spot.

Fourth on the grid is Sir Chris Hoy. The European Le Mans Series 2015 LMP3 Champion and a winner in the Sports Prototype Cup at Silverstone this year, the six-time Olympic champion is well placed to repeat his Silverstone Revolution A-One Trophy victory.

The races take place at 1325 Saturday and 0905 on Sunday.

Full race reports and a photo gallery will follow on Sunday.
