Big excitement for
A total of 32 drivers fought for the best starting positions in qualifying. The session on the racetrack north of Milan was packed with suspense from the first moment, with several different names appearing on the top of the time sheets. Mikkel Pedersen (DK/Dinamic Motorsport) was the first to set the fastest time, followed by Evans and then Güven. Switching to a fresh set of tyres, a turbulent closing phase followed: with five minutes left to the session, Pedersen’s name again appeared at the top of the monitor, with Ammermüller replacing him shortly afterwards. Rookie Güven undercut the time of his rivals and turned his fastest lap in 1:49.295 minutes. Only
Ten Voorde takes up Sunday’s race from the second grid row. His time of 1:49,347 minutes represented the 22-year-old’s personal best time. Ammermüller and Dylan Pereira (L/Momo Megatron Lechner Racing) rounded off the top five on the 5.793 kilometre high-speed circuit. Lining up behind them are Pedersen, Joey Mawson (AUS/Team Australia) and Al Faisal Al Zubair (OM/Lechner Racing Middle East).
Gianmarco Quaresmini concluded the session on 14th as the fastest Italian. The 23-year-old comes from Brescia and drives for Dinamic Motorsport. Alberto Cerqui (Preseglie) also competes in front of home crowds for the squad based in Reggio Emilia. The fastest time in the ProAm category again went to Roar Lindland (N/pierre martinet by ALMÉRAS) ahead of Philipp Sager (A/Dinamic Motorsport) and Clement Mateu (F/pierre martinet by ALMÉRAS).

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
