Santiago Urrutia will start the partially reversed-grid Race 2 from pole position at WTCR Race of Hungary after qualifying in P10 at the Hungaroring.

The Cyan Performance Lynk & Co driver was ninth in the closing stages of the Q2 session, until team-mate Ma Qing Hua improved to sixth, knocking the Uruguayan down to the crucial place. It also meant Cyan Racing Lynk & Co’s Yvan Muller finished in P11.

Rob Huff is set to join Urrutia on the front row of Race 2 after the Briton qualified his Zengő Motorsport CUPRA Leon Competición in ninth. The second row will be made up of Goodyear #FollowTheLeader Néstor Girolami, who qualified eighth, and home hero Norbert Michelisz. The BRC Hyundai N Squadra Corse driver was seventh fastest, but will be docked six places on the grid for Race 1 following his crash with Attila Tassi in Pau.

Race 1 at WTCR Race of Hungary takes place on Sunday morning at 11h20 local time, with Race 2 following at 16h45.
