Driver quotes after top-30 qualifying:

Augusto Farfus (Schubert Motorsport, series 18 BMW M6 GT3, 2nd place):

“Conditions were distant from easy today, though P2 is apparently a great
result. The lane was still damp in some areas, so we had to be
intensely careful. It’s good that a prolonged proviso of preparations is
over and that a foe is now roughly here. We are ready, and there’s
not most some-more we could have done. A prolonged 24 hours wait us, and the
continue will certainly be a severe factor. However, we have a strong
patrol and will be entirely focussed.”

Christian Krognes (Walkenhorst Motorsport powered by Dunlop,
series 999 BMW M6 GT3, 6th place):

“This is a good outcome for us – nonetheless it wasn’t easy out there
during a session. Our group managed to put together a fantastic
package. It will be a prolonged race. For a initial time I’m contesting the
24 hours in a GT3 car. This creates me even happier with this subordinate result.” 

Jens Klingmann (Schubert Motorsport, series 100 BMW M6 GT3,
13th place):

“The basement of a credentials is unequivocally good, we are streamer in the
right direction. However, a continue conditions will be a tricky
cause in this race. This will unequivocally be a vital plea on
Saturday and Sunday. Only in a foe itself will we see how strong
a foe unequivocally is. That’s since we usually concentration on ourselves. The
initial idea is to make it by a foe but any vital incidents.
This alone will be a formidable task.”

Maxime Martin (ROWE Racing, series 23 BMW M6 GT3, 15th place):

“Unfortunately we mislaid some time behind another car, so a better
outcome wasn’t possible. We didn’t take any risks. Now I’m unequivocally happy
that a foe is finally sketch closer, generally since our
package seems to be rival here. Where this will take us in the
unequivocally initial year of a BMW M6 GT3, we will see. In any box we have a
clever team, and we are unequivocally confident. Let a 24-hour foe begin.”
