Just like two weeks ago in Imola, Antonio Fuoco has put the #50 Ferrari 499P on pole position for tomorrow's race. Sarah Bovy claimed pole position in LMGT3 with a stellar lap in het #85 Lamborhini Húracan.

The first qualifying session saw a couple of favorites miss out on hyperpole: most notably the #51 Ferrari in hands of James Calado (11th) and the #7 Toyota of Kobayashi. Peugeot failed to get any of its 9X8s through and will start 14th and 16th, split by the #7 Toyota.

Julien Andlauer in the #99 Proton Porsche led the hyperpole session for a while, but in the end finished 4th. An encouraging result for the private Porsche, qualifying ahead of both JOTA's and the #6 Penske Porsche.

Alex Lynn qualified the #2 Cadillac V-Series in 3rd, only 0.008s (!) behind Matt Campbell in the #5 Penske Porsche. Fuoco was over 0.5s clear of Campbell with a time of 2:02.600.

LMGT3 Pole went to Sarah Bovy, who just missed out a year ago. Now the Iron Dames Lamborghini will lead the LMGT3 field towards La Source tomorrow. Josh Caygill took 2nd in the #95 United Autosports McLaren and Ahmad Al Harthy put Valentino Rossi's #46 WRT BMW M4 on p3.

The LMGT3 Hyperpole session was interrupted by a big shunt for Malykhin in the #92 Porsche on top of Raidillon. The Belarussian lost control on the way up and had a heavy impact with the barriers rear-first.

Tomorrow the race will start at 13:00h local time, (12:00h BST).
