Lotus kept on improving at today’s third practice session and qualifying at the 6 hours of Spa.

James Rossiter qualified the Lotus LMP2 car #32 in the front row of the LMP2 class, just four hundredths behind pole position. Renger van der Zande in car #31 will start from position five.

This is a phantastic result for Lotus at its only second race in sports car racing.

The 6 hours of Spa will start tomorrow at 2:30 pm.

Renger van der Zande, Race Driver #31: “We can be happy with P5 in qualifying. With a bit more track time this morning we could have improved, there is room for more progression of the car and driving. I am happy now and let’s see what we can do tomorrow. I will be starting the race for Lotus and with 42 cars it will be interesting to see what happens at the first hairpin. I will try to stay out of trouble and do a good race.”

James Rossiter, Race Driver #32: “We had a great qualifying session and the car was set up perfectly. It is great to be on the front row with Lotus. We did a lot of hard work and it was worth it. I hope that we will have a great race tomorrow and I can’t wait for the start. Being in the front row is a real bonus for us especially at the start of the race. Six hours can be long so we will see what happens.”
