Qualifying format / Pole position
From 2023, qualifying will take place over 45 minutes – instead of 20 minutes like in previous years.
Each category (Hypercar, LMP2 and LMGTE Am) will, therefore, have 15 minutes for a driver to set the quickest lap.
The fastest time of the car will determine its position on the grid but if a car sets no lap time during qualifying, it will start from the back of the complete grid.
Specific requirements for qualifying:
LMGTE Am: The mandatory timed laps must be completed by a Bronze driver.
An additional point will be awarded, at each Competition, to the "pole position" team in each category (best time achieved by the car in each category during qualifying, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans Hyperpole, with the exception of additional cars), as well as to all the drivers making up the crew of the car concerned.
