The fight for Super Pole, which involved the twenty fastest cars in yesterday’s qualifying, saw the two Iron Lynx Ferraris take thirteenth and eighteenth place on the grid.
The session was held on a track declared wet due to a light downpour, with the drivers using slicks. Alessandro Pier Guidi and Davide Rigon took the wheel of the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020s of Iron Lynx. The reigning champion turned in 2:18.892 on his first attempt, while his second time was cancelled for veering off track at Turn 9. Davide Rigon, who had stopped the clock at 2:19.338 in his first bid for pole, suffered the same fate. These performances put the two Ferrari drivers in thirteenth and eighteenth position for the start of the race on Saturday at 4:30pm.
Alessandro Pier Guidi, Iron Lynx #51: “From my point of view, the Super Pole went pretty well. We did what we expected. I anticipated such a gap because of the Balance of Performance. So, there wasn’t much that could be done. We worked well with the team, and being the fastest of the Ferrari drivers was the best result I could have hoped for today”.
Davide Rigon, Iron Lynx #71: “A slightly bitter Super Pole for me. I didn’t have a good rapport with the car, especially regarding the response of the rear suspension. We made a small change before the session, but it didn’t pay off. In the first attempt, I drove with a bit of margin, trying to avoid the track limits, while in the second attempt, I tried everything and unfortunately couldn’t keep the car within the track limits at Turn 9. Now we are focusing on the race and trying to adjust our car’s set-up again”.
