Peugeot 1-2 in Valencia qualifying
In a repeat performance of their success at Monza, both Peugeot 908 HDi FAPs have qualified on the front row of the grid for the 1,000km of Valencia. It was local talent Marc Gene who took pole position at the wheel of the N°7 908 HDi FAP, just 0.441s clear of the N°8 908 in the hands of Pedro Lamy. Even though qualifying was restricted to the LMP 1 and LMP2 classes, the two 908s were sent out early in the session to avoid traffic, a key concern at Valence.

Marc Gene: "I’m really happy to claim pole position here in Valencia in front of both my fans and friends. I put in a very good first lap, using all the grip I could from my tires. I had to overtake a car which made me loose 2 or 3 tenths in the last sector. I knew I had to give it everything on the first lap and that is exactly what I did. The other laps weren’t as good and traffic prevented me from improving my time."

Pedro Lamy: "I didn’t push hard enough on the first lap and that is when I needed to put in a quick time. After that, traffic and the fact that my tires were going off stopped me from doing any better. Even so, I'm very happy to have succeeded in making it an all-Peugeot front row. The race is going to be very long tomorrow and I am really worried about traffic with 45 cars on a 4km circuit!"
