Text & Images: Rick Kiewiet

Antonio Fuoco in the #50 Ferrari 499P finished first in this evening's qualifying practice, which determined which eight cars from each class will participate in the Hyperpole session tomorrow and who misses out. Alessandro Pier Guidi in the #51 sister car finished second, ahead of both Toyota's. The fastest Toyota, the #7, was just under three tenths off Fuoco's 3:25.213. The top-8 was completed by the #5 Penske Porsche, the #3 and #2 Cadillac and the #75 Penske Porsche. This means the #6 Penske Porsche is the only one that didn't make it into hyperpole. The other dropouts were the #93 and #94 Peugeots (10th and 11th) the #708 Glickenhaus, the #311 Action Express Cadillac, the #709 Glickenhaus, the Vanwall and the #38 JOTA-Porsche.

In LMP2 the pace was set by Pietro Fittipaldi in the #28 Jota. He was only 0.002s faster than Deletraz in the #41 WRT and 0.042s than Bortolotti in the #63 Prema. The other cars that made it into hyperpole are the #10 Vector Sport, the #48 Idec Sport, the #47 Cool racing, the #923 Team Turkey and the #9 Prema.

The first two places in GT Am were also taken by Ferrari, both run by AF Corse. Alessio Rovera was fastest in the #83, followed closely by Davide Rigon in the #54. Nicky Catsburg was third in the #33 Corvette. None of the Porsche 911 made it into Hyperpole, as the remaining place were taken by the #25 Aston, the #57 Kessel Racing Ferrari, the #55 Aston and the #21 and #74 Ferrari's.

Hyperpole is scheduled tomorrow (Thursday) at 20.00h local time, 19.00h in the UK.
