Ricardo Feller takes pole from Thomas Preining for Race 2 at Zandvoort


Thomas Preining (Porsche 911 GT3 R n°91 – Manthey EMA) had long believed in winning his second pole position of the year in the DTM at Zandvoort this Sunday morning.

Starting among the first on the track, the Austrian driver set the first benchmark in 1’33″364, 153 thousandths ahead of poleman and winner of the previous day Maro Engel (Mercedes-AMG GT3 EVO n°48 – Mercedes-AMG Team Mann -Filter).

Returning to his pits, Preining was then the spectator of the neutralization under red flag following the exit from the track of Alessio Deledda (Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO2 n°6 – SSR Performance). With just three minutes left on the clock, the dice might seem cast, but Preining tells the camera not to get fired up.

Good intuition, since on the restart for a single lap in time, it is finally Ricardo Feller (Audi R8 LMS GT3 n°7 – ABT) who comes to take pole at Preining in 1’33″020. The Porsche driver will however start in front row ahead of the Maro Engel – Patric Niederhauser tandem (Audi R8 LMS GT3 n°83 – Tresor Orange1), who also came to improve under the checkered flag.

Laurin Heinrich (Porsche n°75 – Team75 Bernhard) completes the top 5 of the session. Marco Wittmann remains the best BMW representative in 7th position with the M4 GT3 n°11 – Project1. 11th place for the first Ferrari 296 GT3 n°14 – Emil Frey Racing of Albert Costa. 3rd yesterday and leader of the general classification before this second Dutch race, Franck Perera (Lamborghini n°94 – SSR Performance) only took 18th place ahead of his team-mate Mirko Bortolotti.

The race will start at 1:30 p.m. in the Netherlands.
