- Overall leader Dylan Pereira from BWT Lechner Racing is fastest in qualifying for round six of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
- SSR Huber Racing driver Laurin Heinrich from Germany tackles the Belgian Formula 1 circuit from the second grid spot.
- Marvin Klein (F/CLRT) and Supercup champion Larry ten Voorde (NL/Team GP Elite) start Sunday’s race from the second grid row.
Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich, the second fastest qualifier in the ca. 375 kW (510 PS) Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, adds another critical factor: “Before Eau Rouge is the La Source hairpin. Things usually get pretty chaotic here after the start. The further down the grid you are, the greater the risk. If I had a choice, I’d rather start from pole position,” states the 20-year-old German.
Pereira and Heinrich belong to a group of five who have pulled slightly clear of the rest of the field in the overall classification. Another is the reigning Supercup champion Larry ten Voorde (GP Elite), who, clinching the fourth place on the grid, also has an excellent chance for a top result in Sunday’s race. Currently ranking third in the standings, the Dutchman shares the second grid row with Frenchman Marvin Klein (CLRT). Third row went to rookies Lorcan Hanafin (FACH AUTO TECH) from the UK and Bastian Buus (BWT Lechner Racing). After five races, the Dane is currently fifth overall in the championship.
Bad luck plagued Harry King from England. Ranking fourth in the overall standings, the BWT Lechner Racing driver was on his way to setting a top time in the final seconds of the dry qualifying session. Shortly before the finish line, he became involved in a collision while overtaking a slower competitor. King had to settle for his previously set eighth fastest time.
To avoid similar problems on Sunday, pole-setter Pereira has come up with a simple plan: “I’ll get off the line perfectly and immediately put some space between me and the rest of the field.”
