Nicolai Sylvest beats team-mate Jan Magnussen to pole – Elgaard disqualified

Nicolai Sylvest headed LM Racing team-mate Jan Magnussen in the TCR Denmark qualifying session at Jyllandsringen.

A mere 43 thousands of a second separated the two Cupra León Competición drivers.

Reigning champion and Honda driver Kasper Jensen was third fastest, close to three tenths from pole position.

Casper Elgaard had qualified fourth but was later disqualified for failing the ride height check after the session. The Peugeot 308TCR driver will start tenth.

Jacob Mathiassen inherited fourth (Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR) with Kenn Bach in fifth, 1.2 seconds from Sylvest.

The Peugeot trio of Michael Markussen, Michael Carlsen and Gustav Birch rounded off the top eight.

Philip Lindberg ended up in ninth position after having his fastest time cancelled for hitting a corner marker.

The first of three races starts at 12:35 CEST tomorrow.
