Mirko Bortolotti and Grasser Racing Team once again posted the fastest time of the session in Pre-Qualifying on Thursday afternoon ahead of the Total 24 Hours of Spa.

The Italian driver in the No. 63 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 set a lap time of 2:19.435 early in the one-hour session after already going quickest in Free Practice earlier in the day.

He improved his lap by almost one second as compared to the Free Practice time.

Norbert Siedler moved the No. 333 Rinaldi Racing Ferrari 488 GT3 into second with two minutes remaining, with the Pro-Am car lapping four-tenths slower than the Lamborghini. 

Jordan Pepper came through to secure third for Bentley Team Abt, ahead of Filipe Albuquerque’s ISR Audi R8 LMS in fourth.

The Audi Sport-backed sister car of Frank Stippler was classified sixth, behind the No. 23 Motul Team RJN Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3.

It was a fairly quiet session with no incidents although several cars, including the No. 58 Strakka Racing McLaren 650S GT3, were in the garage for lengthy periods of time.

The first qualifying session kicks off at 8:10 p.m. local time, with night qualifying following at 9:55 p.m.\
