the pleasant surprise of Caldarelli and Lamborghini!


The 20 best competitors from qualifying will compete for the Superpole. Will we win a 4th pole in a row at Mercedes? This Superpole will also allow the best to score a few points in the championship. It should be recalled, however, that the last victory of a car that started on pole dates back to 2014.

TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa


Just before the top 20 compete in the Superpole, all competitors are entitled to a final warm-up! A final opportunity for most of the competitors to get their bearings before the big start on Saturday at 4.45 p.m. The teams are taking advantage of this warm-up to practice changing drivers and changing brake discs. At KCMG, technical problems reduced the running time on Thursday evening, so the team is making the most of these 30 minutes of warm-up. At the start of the session, Luca Stolz (Mercedes AMG GT3 #2 GetSpeed) was the fastest. But the Ferrari Iron Lynx improve this time! Another strong performance from the Italian team’s cars, although they were still overtaken by the #63 Emil Frey Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3 driven by Mirko Bortolotti who set the best time in 2’17.523. neutralized for a few minutes because of the exit of an Allied Racing Porsche.

Competitors will set off every minute and it is Fabian Schiller who will open the track at the wheel of the Mercedes AMG GT3 #777 Al Manar Racing by HRT. He will be followed by the fiery Kévin Estre in the Porsche 911 GT3R #221 GPX Martini Racing!

Excellent time for Fabian Schiller who finished his first lap in 2’16″774, but the German did not improve because he made a mistake on his second attempt! Estre improved this time on his second attempt with a superb 2 ’16″702. Mirko Bortolotti makes an excellent first attempt. Despite a small error, Klaus Bachler (Porsche 911 GT3R #54 Dinamic Motorsport) took provisional pole on his first attempt in 2’16″446, the Austrian driver improved the record set by Ferrari yesterday during qualifying! Klaus Bachler n did not improve in his second lap with a 2’16″471.

Raffaele Marciello (Mercedes AMG GT3 #88 Akkodis-ASP Team), the super poleman of 2020 and 2021 sets off…his first time is canceled for not respecting the limits of the track! But the Swiss was entitled to a second attempt and he panicked the stopwatch by crossing the line with a superb 2’16″375!

We weren’t expecting it, we were only watching it with one eye because we were mainly waiting for the lap times of the Ferrari Iron Lynx… But Andrea Caldarelli (Lamborghini Huracan GT3 #6 Orange 1 K-PAX Racing) achieved a last hot sector and took pole in 2’16″221! A first pole for Lamborghini at the 24 Hours of Spa!

At the end of this Superpole, the first 17 finished in the same second! Andrea Caldarelli is therefore ahead of Raffaele Marciello and Klaus Bachler. The first Audi finished 7th thanks to Mattia Drudi while Fabian Schiller will start 9th and lead the Silver category. Small disappointment for the Ferrari Iron Lynx which will start outside the top 10, same disappointment at WRT with only the 15th time for Dries Vanthoor (Audi R8 LMS GT3 #32 WRT).
