Iron Lynx topped the morning session at Spa-Francorchamps with its #51 Ferrari as the TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa test days began amid challenging weather conditions.
Rain had already been falling for some time when running began at 09:00 CEST and it intensified as the morning progressed. This resulted in a number of red flag periods interrupting the three-hour session, while the weather continued to worsen as lunch approached.
Alessandro Pier Guidi posted the best time of the morning at the wheel of the #51 Iron Lynx Ferrari. The Italian driver's lap of 2m30.777s was 0.870s clear of the #37 Team WRT Audi. Saintéloc Racing (#25 Audi), KCMG (#47 Porsche) and HRT (#5 Mercedes-AMG) completed the top-five.
The #24 Car Collection Audi, the #61 EBM Giga Racing Porsche and the #99 Attempto Racing Audi were among the cars to hit trouble, while the #163 Emil Frey Racing Lamborghini caused minor barrier damage but was able to return to the pits under its own power.
The #30 Team WRT Audi completed the most laps during the session, logging 36 tours of the 7km track. Indeed, it was a successful morning for the Belgian squad, with all four WRT cars completing in excess of 30 laps.
The afternoon session will begin at 13:00 and conclude at 18:00, while the same format will be used again on Wednesday.
