Best weather, but still wet track: In the second qualifying session of the ADAC qualifying race 24h race tumbled at the very end of the times. Almost all teams used the one-hour qualifying session to send their cars on the track - but nobody came close to the overall best time from the first qualifying session.
The race on Sunday afternoon will be tackled by the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 from Haribo Racing (#8) from pole position. In addition to the black car in the front row: The brand colleagues of Zakspeed (#27), who were able to improve their time from qualifying with 8: 26.749 Min. On their last flying lap. The second row is shared by the Lexus LFA Code X of the Toyota works team Gazoo Racing (#53) and the SCG 003c the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (#40), which could also mark their best times already on Saturday.
Sebastian Asch (#27, Zakspeed Team, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3) "Second place is a great starting position for the qualifying race. For the fact that we are only starting for the second time with the gullwing on the Nordschleife, we have already created a very good basis for the 24h race. Our goal today is a podium finish. Of course it would be very nice if we were at the top of the podium in the end. "Jens Klingmann (#20, BMW Sports Trophy Team Schubert, BMW Z4 GT3)" I was the first driver of the BMW Z4 this morning. It was still relatively wet, so yesterday's times were not achievable. But it got drier from round to round. Claudia Hürtgen then drove our fastest time in the second qualifying session. ”
