In the qualifying, 30 drivers battled it out for the best grid positions. The top time in the first half of the 30-minute session was set by Michael Ammermüller (D/BWT Lechner Racing). The championship leader turned the fastest lap after five minutes. For the final phase, the drivers switched to fresh tyres. Shortly before the end of the session,
Pereira planted his nine-eleven on the second grid row next to Ammermüller. “At first I encountered a lot of traffic on the track, so a top time wasn’t possible. Unfortunately in my flying lap I didn’t take the last corner very well. Still, third place is a good starting point for the race,” said Pereira. Guest driver Igor Walilko (PL/MSG-Huber Racing Team) claimed the fifth grid position on the 4.318-kilometre circuit. Positions six to eight went to Jaap van Lagen (NL/martinet by ALMÉRAS), Florian Latorre (F/Fach Auto Tech) and Toni Wolf (D/Team Project 1 – Fach) as the best rookie.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel 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 September 01, 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, irrespective of the testing method 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. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
