Harry Tincknell takes his second pole of the year, a third for the Jota Sport team. The young British LMP2 driver set the fastest qualifying time at Spielburg’s Red Bull Ring after a win at Imola and Le Mans 24hrs. Despite the heat expected for this afternoon’s 4 hours of RBR, Tincknell is confident he can add another ELMS win to his growing résumé.
