Estre Tops Night Practice Session In KCMG Porsche

Kevin Estre put the #47 KCMG Porsche on top in Night Practice ahead of this weekend’s Total 24 Hours of Spa with a best time of 2:22.370s.

The Frenchman and teammates Richard Lietz and Michael Christensen have switched to the KCMG squad to defend their 2019 victory in the Ardennes. Having already secured a place in tomorrow’s Super Pole, they produced a statement of intent by leading the 90-minute after-dark session.

Maro Engel was second fastest in the #4 Mercedes-AMG Team HRT machine, followed by local favourites Laurens Vanthoor (#98 ROWE Porsche) and Maxime Martin (#188 Garage 59 Aston Martin). The latter was also the best of the Pro-Am entrants.

Frederik Schandorff led the Silver Cup contingent, placing ninth overall in the #78 Barwell Lamborghini. The fastest among the Am Cup runners was Marco Seefried (#918 Herberth Porsche) in 43rd spot overall.

Night Practice came shortly after Qualifying, which saw the #31 Audi Sport Team WRT crew lead 20 cars into Super Pole. Earlier in the evening, Frikadelli Racing confirmed a change to the line-up of its #22 Porsche. Jörg Bergmeister will replace Timo Bernhard, who was unable to secure his negative COVID-19 result in time for the event.
