it was Not the qualifying session and awaited by the riders and teams fighting for the title of the Endurance Cup, but also for the organisers of the Blancpain GT Series. After a weekend that had been perfect in terms of weather, Nürburgring dawned with a dense fog that made it impossible to dispute the Q1 and the Q2, causing the grill had to decide to a letter in a Q3 which was held in difficult conditions. This left the pole position for the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 #19, Beretta, Piccini and Stolz, while the title contenders were living his particular drama.
Without doubt, the best-made furniture was the Mercedes-AMG GT3 #84 Jaafar, Baumann and Buhk at the end of fourth, even though your time is the car less chance you have of winning the title, by pure math. However, this particular classification in which they are cast behind the Audi #28 in which it competes Will Stevens and the Ferrari 488 #50 AF Corse makes the options of a famous comeback win integers. About all because behind you have cars very fast that can make a border with its rivals.
Just behind the Nissan GT-R NISMO’s #23 in which it competes Lucas Ordoñez has been placed at twelfth position in the Bentley #8 Soucek, Soulet and Reip, which implies in spite of everything a hopeful outcome. In all the appointments of resistance of the season, the Bentley has been very competitive and on most occasions it has done so from certain comebacks. This fact, his second position in the ranking of the Endurance Cup, and having the McLaren 650S, which leads the competition behind allow to dream with the title of Andy Soucek and his companions.
Much more complicated to have it after this classification, despite being
the McLaren 650S #58 Bell, Ledogar, and Tappy, the whole time
starts from the 21st
. At the Hungaroring, in the penultimate round of the
Sprint Cup already saw it as the 650S has big problems to move around
in large groups, and to trace, so their pilots will have to be
especially lucid if they want to defend their advantage. In spite of this,
keeps a few options that it seems that the BMW M6 GT3 99 has lost. The
victory at the 24 Hours of Spa is far and boot into the position 39
it is a slab too large to overcome.
it has also left mixed fortunes between the Spanish pilot remaining.
As we have already mentioned,
Lucas Ordoñez will start with your Nissan GT-R
NISMO GT3 #23 in eleventh position
. The alignment formed by the
Ordonez, Takaboshi and Buncombe took very good conditions
peculiar of the track, although it will be difficult that you can maintain that
position for rhythm. Much worse starting position has the Mercedes-AMG
GT3 #30 Miguel Toril as it will start from the position thirty. By
the Jaguar XK GT3 #14 Albert Costa will start the 3 Hours of
Nürburgring in the place 38th
