Caca Bueno claimed his third Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY pole of the season, in a closely fought qualifying session for this afternoon’s round in Monaco.
The Brazilian led an all-front row for Jaguar Brazil Racing, having turned a 1:04.523 in his No. 0 Jaguar I-PACE to edge out Sergio Jimenez by 0.034 seconds.
It gave the team its fourth pole in the last five races.
The 30-minute session saw a number of late pole attempts, including a significant improvement for championship leader Bryan Sellers, who took his No. 6 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Jaguar to third on the grid after struggling early.
Sellers’ teammate Katherine Legge, meanwhile, found the wall and was unable to return to the track after posting a 1:04.999 that will put her sixth overall and in the Pro class.
Paris runner-up Stefan Rzadzinski qualified fourth for TWR Techeetah, while Simon Evans completed the top-five.
Pro-Am class pole honors went to the the No. 12 Saudi Racing Jaguar of Bandar Alesayi, who was just six-tenths off Bueno’s overall pace-setting time.
Anthony Beltoise, driving the Jaguar VIP Guest car this weekend, qualified ninth overall.
The 25-minute plus one-lap race gets underway at 6 p.m. local time (12 p.m. EDT) with live coverage on Eurosport Player and FOX Sports 2.
