Comtoyou Racing completed a Friday sweep at Misano, leading the way in a Pre-Qualifying session dominated by Audi machinery.
The Belgian squad's #21 Gold Cup entry was quickest overall thanks to a 1m31.981s lap from Gilles Magnus, comfortably beating the #25 Saintéloc Junior Team car by 0.233s. Third went to the #88 Akkodis ASP Mercedes-AMG of Raffaele Marciello, which represented the only non-Audi in the top-eight.
Normal service was resumed with the #26 Saintéloc Junior Team in fourth, followed by the #12 Comtoyou Racing and the #99 Tresor Attempto Racing, the latter leading the Silver Cup class thanks to Lorenzo Patrese. This was an encouraging showing for the #99 crew, which did not make it out at all during Free Practice.
The #112 JP Motorsport McLaren topped the Bronze Cup order in ninth overall with Norbert Siedler at the wheel. A fourth brand was present in the top-10 thanks to the #69 Emil Frey Racing Ferrari, though the Swiss squad could not match the pace it showed in Free Practice.
After showing well this morning, the BMW runners were notably absent from the top of the timing screens. The best of the Bavarian marque's cars was the #46 Team WRT entry in 13th overall. This was one place better than the quickest Lamborghini, with the #60 VSR machine placing 14th for the local brand.
The 80-minute session ran without a single interruption, ensuring plenty of opportunity to prepare for a busy weekend. Qualifying 1 is scheduled for 09:00 CEST on Saturday, followed by Race 1 at 14:00. The same programme is repeated on Sunday, with all of the action streamed live on the GT World YouTube channel.
