Brendon Hartley will go for pole at Le Mans tomorrow after comfortably securing a place in the new hyperpole session.
A one-hour qualifying held this morning NZT had all four classes on track together in a battle to finish in the top six places.
The fastest six from each class will then have a single-lap shootout tomorrow morning NZT to determine their starting position.
Given there are only five cars in the Hypercar class, Hartley and the No.8 Toyota only needed to set a sole time to bag a shootout spot.
The Kiwi was at the helm of the No.8 for its fastest lap of the session, which was the third quickest overall.
Provisional pole fell the way of Kamui Kobayashi in the sister Toyota, while the Alpine LMP1 car was second-fastest.
Unfortunately, Earl Bamber and Jaxon Evans will not feature in Hyperpole for their respective classes.
Bamber missed out by one place and will start seventh in the GTE-Pro class.
A measly 0.06s split a place in Hyperpole and P7.
Evans will start his rookie Le Mans 51st overall and 12th in the GTE-Am category.
The Kiwi is sharing a Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche with Matt Campbell and Christian Reid.
Again, margins between the top six and the rest of the field were slim.
The best lap for Evans was two-tenths off P6 and a place in Hyperpole.
Hyperpole will begin at 7 am NZT tomorrow.
