Amongst the LMGTE Am, car no.33, the Aston Martin Vantage, took pole for tomorrow’s 6 Hours of Monza race.

Moving onto the most exciting part of the WEC’s qualifying session, the Hypercars. Glickenhaus’ Pipo Derani was first to go out and start his stint, while Tatiana Calderon from Richard Mille Racing was out first for the LMP2 category.

Toyota Gazoo Racing’s no.7 car with Jose Maria Lopez as their driver was leading the timesheet at the time.
