ADAC GT Masters Zandvoort 2022: Aitken takes pole on Sunday

Emil-Frey-Lamborghini continues to determine events at the ADAC GT Masters 2022 in Zandvoort: In qualifying on Sunday, it was Jack Aitken in the #63 car (Costa/Aitken) who secured pole position.

Aitken set his fastest lap of 1:33.471 minutes relatively late in the session. However, that was to be expected: The track was still a little damp at the beginning, so the entire field took its time chasing the times. Only in the second half of the 20-minute qualifying did the drivers in the German GT Championship really get serious.

With Franck Perera in the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 #19 (Perera/Rougier), Emil Frey Racing also brought the second top car into the top 3. Perera lined up behind Aitken and Ayhancan Güven in the Joos-Porsche #91 (Engelhart/Güven) in third place.

Mercedes-AMG and BMW far behind

Behind the first three follows an Audi quartet: Mattia Drudi secured fourth place in the Car Collection Audi #33 (Drudi/Vermeulen) ahead of Markus Winkelhock in the sister car #69 (Winkelhock/Spengler), Christopher Mies in the Land Audi # 1 (Mies/Zimmermann) and Patric Niederhauser in the Rutronik-Audi #15 (Niederhauser/Engstler).

As the best Mercedes-AMG driver, Raffaele Marciello took ninth place in the #48 Landgraf-Mercedes (Marciello/Ferrari). The Italian, who starts under a Swiss license, ranks between Sven Müller in the Allied-Porsche #22 (Müller/Sturm) in eighth place and Dennis Marschall in the Rutronik-Audi #27 (Marschall/Schramm) in tenth place.

Nick Catsburg placed the better of the two Schubert BMWs, namely the #20 (Catsburg/Krohn), in 13th place. Qualifying was also disappointing for the ZVO Mercedes team. Jules Gounon did not get past 17th place in the #4 car (Gounon/Schiller), Dani Juncadella only managed 21st position in the #8 car (Juncadella/Marschalkowski).

But: The BoP of the ADAC GT Masters for Zandvoort fits. This is evidenced by the fact that all 22 vehicles were within a second. The last vehicle, the #10 Schubert-BMW (Green/Krütten), was 0.979 seconds short of pole time. The Sunday round of the German GT Championship in the Netherlands starts at 1:00 p.m. CEST.
