São Paulo Qualifying Result

Qualifying proved to be a frantic affair. And especially for the GTE and GT3 cars, the pole position was hotly contested. On several occasions in both Q1 and Q2, the DIS SR Lab Porsche set the fastest lap, only to be outdone by other cars. In Q2 the #74 Deuces Motorsport Club Aston Martin stayed in the pit box until the very last twenty minutes of the session and then progressed to set the fastest time in the session. And although the #717 Unison Racing BMW demonstrated that they clearly had the pace to set a provisional Q2 pole, they didn’t get an entire lap strung together before the time ran out.

In GT3 Asetek Simsport made the fatal mistake of running out of fuel in Q1 and couldn’t make it back to pit lane. As a result, GlamRacing held the fastest Q1 GT3 time and was only beaten for overall pole position in the dying minutes of Q2.

LMP2 was never really in question, as every time the Deuces Motorsport Oreca 07 set a fast time, the Burst eSport car responded quickly and set a new fastest time. For DPi it is a clear pole position for the #18 Burst eSports Cadillac as Unison Racing apparently struggled with a loose rear end and lack of grip for both sessions.

Onwards to the race, where the field will include the Championship leading  SEM9 Axle LMP2 car as well. So excitement is guaranteed for the full twelve hours.

The race starts at 14.00 CEST and the prerace show will start broadcasting at 13.30 CEST.

About The Author

Peter Munkholm
When John Nielsen won Le Mans 24-Hours in 1990, Peter was hooked with motorsports. He started sim racing on his uncles PC with Formula One Grand Prix by Geoff Crammond in 1992. Then progressed through IndyCar Simulator and IndyCar Simulator 2 on his Amiga 500+. When he bought his own PC in 1994 and a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro Joystick he was already deeply in love with sim racing. His first skirmish with light modding was a Pernod Anis blue, white, and red skin for IndyCar Racing 2. He was hooked! But sim racing really kicked off for Peter with Sports Car GT in 1999. And with internet access and what felt like an ocean of mods. Sports Car GT and the F1 simulators with endurance racing mods swallowed most of his spare time. Then the GTR mod for F1 2003 arrived on the scene, from some Swedish dudes who called themselves SIMBIN. That would change everything! Right about then was also when Logitech steering wheels reach a state of useful. So when the GTR game officially released Peter bought a Formula Force GP wheel the same day, went home and founded the Danish Grand Touring League (DGTL). In 2006 the first LAN event was held. This became GTR24H in 2007.As they say. The rest is history!
