Stanaway commented saying, "That was the start we were looking for, but there's still a lot of work to do to win the race. The car feels great and we're all on top form so we just need to bring it all together on Saturday."

Pedro Lamy was in the limelight as well, after he set the fastest time in the #98 Vantage GTE. He will start from the third place overall in the race.

In the PRO class, the #97 Aston Martin Vantage will start from the third place and the #95 will start from fifth place while the Gulf Racing car will start from twelfth position.

The qualifying results are as follows:

  • #99 GTE PRO - P1 overall / P1 in class
