Sky Sports F1 broadcaster and 1990 Le Mans winner Martin Brundle showed he’s definitely not forgotten his way around the Circuit de la Sarthe in qualifying for the Road To Le Mans event on Thursday evening.
The 30-minute session saw Brundle put the #2 United Autosports Ligier he’s sharing with Christian England on pole position for Saturday morning’s 24 Hours-supporting event. His time of 3:55.748 just shading by 0.185 seconds the effort of Ginetta works driver Charlie Roberston in the #32 Ginetta P3 (above), co-driven by marque boss Lawrence Tomlinson.
Competing the LMP3 top three was DC Racing’s young charger Thomas Laurent, almost exactly half a second off Brundle’s benchmark.
Fastest of the GT3 runners in qualifying was the Menthos Racing Porsche of Egidio Perfetti, ahead of Aleksey Basov’s AF Corse-run Ferrari 488 and Hiroshi Hamaguchi in the FFF Racing McLaren 650S (below).
