Comtoyou Racing Audi tops opening morning session at official Prologue 

23 May 2023

Comtoyou Racing ended the opening morning of the 2023 CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa Prologue at the top of the timing screens courtesy of its #11 Audi. 

Christopher Haase posted a 2m18.525s lap early in the three-hour session, after which rain left the circuit damp and prevented any improvement on the German driver's benchmark. The #11 Audi was 0.471s faster than the #79 HRT Mercedes-AMG, which was also the best of the Bronze Cup runners.

The #19 Iron Lynx Lamborghini was the top Gold Cup entrant in P8 overall. The #216 Modena Motorsports Porsche paced Pro-Am in P12, while the #26 Saintéloc Junior Team Audi led the Silver Cup class in P16.

Unfortunately the session was not all plain sailing for the #26 Audi, which brought out the red flags when it crashed at Pouhon shortly before 11:00 local time. The driver was unhurt, though the barriers required more than half an hour of attention before running could resume. 

Cars will be back on-track from 13:00 until 18:00. Wednesday's schedule repeats the same format, running from 09:00–12:00 and 13:00-18:00. The circuit remains open to the public throughout, with admission offered free of charge.
