Great pole position for the Lamborghini Hurricane #63 at Brands Hatch


Warned Bortolotti after achieving victory in the 3 Hours of Monza, which beyond the victory in the appointment of house, the aim of
Lamborghini was the global title of the Blancpain GT Series. And it seems that not
I was going to bluff, the whole time Mirko Bortolotti has been awarded the pole position for the
Lamborghini Hurricane #63 of GRT Grasser
at Brands Hatch, a circuit that hosts the
second appointment of the Sprint Cup. In defense of the title harvested in 2016, the Audi
#1 of Ide and Mies finished second, while BMW #98 has been third party.
Dani Juncadella has placed the Mercedes #88 in the sixth position.

The Q1 came to be a witness of a similar episode that
they lived in the free, every time that the McLaren #44 suffered a massive accident
that forced to show the red flag with three minutes to the end of
the session. Beyond this incident, Andy Soucek got the best time
Q1 with the Bentley #8
after stopping the clock in 1:24.548. Winkelhock put the
Audi #2 in second position, while Watson got the McLaren #59
might see in the position of the head. Even so, they all knew that the times
in Q2 would improve

The forecasts do not fail, and the Q2 left times faster,
as well as a new catalogue of favorites. In fact, Bortolotti was the pilot more
fast in Q2 with the Lamborghini #63
after stopping the clock in 1:23.730. Ten
thousandths behind stood Dani Juncadella, while Mies returned to carry
the Audi #1 to the positions of head. The BMW #98 of ROWE Racing of the hand of
Krohn also was in the top places. Worse were the things the
Bentley #8 of Soucek and Soulet
, the whole time I was away from the times that
gave access to the Q3.


In Q3 Mirko Bortolotti destapaba the jar of the essences and with a 1:22.891 I got the Lamborghini Hurricane #63 was done with the best starting position for the Qualifying-Race. In a pattern similar to that seen minutes before in Q2, Christopher Mies placed the Audi #1 in second position, while Jesse Krohn did the same with the BMW M6 #98 in third place. Closing the good Saturday of Lamborghini and GRT Grasser, Haase got the second of the Hurricane GT3 of the training took the fifth position on the starting grid.

With all and in key Spanish Dani Juncadella took it to the Mercedes-AMG GT3 #88 at the sixth position. The Spanish driver got a time of 1:23.542, a record six-tenths of the time of the pole, but that has enabled him to be the best pilot Mercedes at Brands Hatch. In this aspect, Juncadella exceeded by two thousandths to the Lamborghini #66 of Mapelli and for seven the Audi #17 of the Frijns. Alvaro Parente has placed the McLaren #58 in ninth position, while the Top 10 closes the Mercedes #84 of the leaders of the Sprint Cup, Perera and Buhk.
