petit lemans corvette dp on pole

Christian Fittipaldi put the Daytona 24-winning Action Express Corvette DP on pole for the start of today’s Petit LeMans endurance classic- putting a positive note on an otherwise strange and short qualifying session that saw two red flags that left the former F1 pilot just seven laps to get up to qualifying speeds.

“I knew I had to get it done,” said Fittipalid in a post-qualifying interview. It was the second 2014 pole position for the No. 5 Action Express Corvette DP, co-driven by Joao Barbosa and Sebastien Bourdais, and the first pole of the year for Fittipaldi, who shares the series points lead (currently sitting at 316) with his co-driver, Joao Barbosa.

Further back in the field, IndyCar sensation Jack Hawksworth put in a flyer in his Oreca FLM09 that put him at the top of the PC class. It was a class drive, further cementing the fact that he deserved his 2014 IndyCar drive and heavily implying that there is more to come from the young Brit.

You can see how the day played out for the rest of the field, below- and check out that drive from the DeltaWing guys!- and catch the Petit LeMans 24 hour endurance classic live on Fox Sports 2 and live streaming at IMSA.com starting at 3PM EST. Enjoy!
