Quotes from the team:
Spencer Pumpelly, Driver, No 45:
"Taking the pole in the last ever GTC qualifying session was a great feeling. I have always loved the qualifying sessions we run in this class because the competition is so close and we are all pushing so hard and really hanging onto the car. This result puts us in good position for tomorrow's race and I think that Nelson and Madison will both show impressive pace. Thanks to everyone at Flying Lizard for all their hard work putting together such a great car."
