Airton Dare, #1 Banestado Lola - Qualified 6th:

"The track has more grip now, and you start to feel the bumps more. It's really upsetting the back of the car and we weren't able to gain with new tires."

Guy Smith, #6 Swift Caravans Lola - Qualified 11th:

"I was losing a lot down the straights this morning, so we did an engine change between sessions. The car feels pretty similar. The balance is good, but we didn't find the window we were expecting when we put new tires on."
