- Frenchman plants the CLRT team’s Porsche 911 GT3 Cup on pole position for the first time this Supercup season
- Fastest qualifier Dylan Pereira from Luxembourg (BWT Lechner Racing) loses pole position after a penalty
- Defending champion Larry ten Voorde (Team GP Elite) only on P6 at home race
- Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich from Germany (SSR Huber Racing), currently second in the standings, starts the race on Sunday from tenth place
375 kW (510 PS) Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and even continued their drive. “I have to apologise to Simone, I simply didn’t see him,” said Pereira, taking responsibility. The stewards agreed and consequently moved Pereira three positions down the grid. As a result, the series’ leader starts from fourth place.
“I’m thrilled to be on the front row of the grid for the first time this season – the team has worked hard for this,” beamed Marvin Klein, who had posted the second fastest time on the Formula 1 racetrack on the North Sea coast. Lining up alongside him on the front row is Harry King. The UK driver was one of very few to improve his lap time towards the end of the session. “I tried out something with my first set of fresh tyres and it didn’t work,” said the BWT Lechner Racing driver cryptically. “With the second set, I switched to the proven setup and was significantly faster.”
Lining up next to Pereira for the 17-lap race on Sunday is the Dutchman Jaap van Lagen (Martinet by Alméras). The third grid row is shared by two other Dutch drivers Morris Schuring (Huber Racing) as the fastest rookie and Larry ten Voorde (Team GP Elite). The reigning Supercup champion who currently ranks third in the standings seemed somewhat perplexed after the qualifying: “l improved significantly from practice but I just couldn’t do more in the qualifying. I hope we can make a few adjustments in time for the race,” contemplated ten Voorde.
The qualifying session didn’t run smoothly for Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich either. The German from the SSR Huber Racing team achieved the tenth quickest time. “I got the timing of my flying lap wrong. I went out when the grip was no longer ideal,” admitted the 20-year-old from Germany.
Three early title decisions this weekend?
Only 15 points separate points leader Dylan Pereira, Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich and defending champion Larry ten Voorde ahead of the Zandvoort race. While the question of the overall championship title in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is still wide open, the decision on the three individual classifications might be made early at the penultimate race of the season. BWT Lechner Racing holds a 90-point lead in the team standings. A maximum of 90 points can be earned in Zandvoort – thus, BWT Lechner Racing is just one point shy of winning the title. This means that either of the two nominated drivers Dylan Pereira and Harry King just needs to finish on P15 or better.
With six wins from six races, Bastian Buus holds a convincing lead in the rookie classification, which is calculated according to the overall rankings. Competing for BWT Lechner Racing, the Dane has a 43-point lead over UK driver Lorcan Hanafin (FACH AUTO TECH). To keep the title decision open until the finale in Italy, Hanafin would have to come first or second in Zandvoort, while Buus would have to finish 15th place or lower.
The situation in the ProAm category is not as clear-cut. In this case, points are awarded according to the placement within the category. Clinching three wins so far this season, Roar Lindland from Norway (Pierre Martinet by Alméras) sits 21 points ahead of his French teammate Clément Mateu. To take home his fourth ProAm title early, Lindland would need to earn at least four points more than Mateu on Sunday.
