The Qualifying Session for the final round of the 2014 Blancpain Endurance Series was decided halfway through Q2, just before a rain shower made it impossible to improve the lap times. At the start of Q2 it was Christopher Mies in the #1 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT Audi who set the fastest time of the session, in 1’55.708. Mies was transferred to the #1 Audi before the start of the weekend, and now has Cesar Ramos and Pro Cup points leader Laurens Vanthoor as his team-mates. The German was quickly followed by his countrymen Marc Basseng and Marco Seefried, in the #3 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT Audi and #52 AF Corse Ferrari respectively. Seefried, who shares the car with Pro-Am Cup championship contender Francesco Castellacci, also set pole in Pro-Am Cup.
Steven Kane’s time in Q1 was enough to put the #7 M-Sport Bentley on the second row as well, while the third row will be occupied by the #99 ART Grand Prix McLaren and the #8 M-Sport Bentley.
Alexander Matschull, driving the #458 GT Corse by Rinaldi Ferrari, took pole in the Gentlemen Trophy. Matschull, together with team-mate Frank Schmickler, is going for a fourth win of the season, which could also give him the Gentlemen Trophy’s title.
