Jeroen Mul scored his second consecutive IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship pole in GT Daytona, securing the top starting position in GT Daytona for Sunday’s Michelin GT Challenge at Virginia International Raceway.

The Dutchman stormed to a record-breaking 1:43.391 lap time in the No. 16 Change Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3, edging out Jesse Krohn’s Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 by 0.230 seconds.

It marked the first repeat GTD pole winner this season, which has seen Mul top the time charts in every session so far this weekend in the GT-only weekend.

Mul will share driving duties in tomorrow’s two-hour and 40 minute race with Corey Lewis.

The No. 57 Stevenson Motorsports Audi R8 LMS of Andrew Davis will start third in class, followed by Jeroen Bleekemolen, who elected to qualify, and start, the No. 33 Riley Team AMG Mercedes-AMG GT3 in the wake of last-minute co-driver Trent Hindman, who is pulling triple duty this weekend.

Jack Hawksworth completed the top-five in the No. 15 3GT Racing Lexus RC F GT3, which were all under Madison Snow’s class track qualifying record from last year.

Snow qualified his No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Lamborghini 7th in class.

The Michelin GT Challenge at VIR is set for Sunday at 1:30 p.m. ET, with live coverage on FS1.
