With qualifying duties for the V8 Vantage GTE in the hands of Pedro Lamy (P) and Paul Dalla Lana (C), the pair soon found themselves amidst fierce competition for the top spot. After completing their initial runs in the 25-minute session, the pair found themselves placed in third.
Underlining the importance of Lamy’s effort, Dalla Lana said, “It’s just simple. It’s all about Pedro. He did a killer lap to make sure we got the pole we wanted. We both struggled with track limits earlier on, which meant we both had to do extra laps on the first set. By the time I could get hold of the car, the tyres weren’t in great condition but I did the best I could. Thankfully Pedro saved us with that final lap on fresh rubber”.
