In the morning practice session, the team was able to fulfill the entire program in preparation for tomorrow’s race.

Under difficult conditions, James Rossiter, who is celebrating his birthday today, and Thomas Holzer qualified the Lotus LMP2 cars in 7th and 14th position in LMP2 class respectively.

The race start will be tomorrow at 12:00 hours local time.

Thomas Holzer, Race driver #31: “It was difficult for me today under these conditions. The setup of the car was okay, but I have never driven in the wet. But I learnt a lot today and there is a lot of potential to have a good result tomorrow.”

James Rossiter, Race driver #32: “I am happy with today’s qualifying result. The gap to the cars in front is not so big considering we lost 90 minutes track time yesterday. The track dried up during the qualifying session which made it also difficult to drive. I am confident that we can have a good race because the car feels good. I am looking forward to start my home race tomorrow.”
