Qualifying is divided into two 20-minute sessions: one for the LMGTEs (Pro & Am) and the other for the LMPs (LMP1 & LMP2).

Cars not taking part in the session (e.g. LMGTE during the LMP session, LMP during the LMGTE session) must categorically be placed inside their garages, except those which must proceed to scrutineering.

Two drivers from each crew must at least set one timed lap in qualifying. The reference for the starting grid is calculated on the average of the two fastest lap times (one per driver). If at least two crews set an identical average time, priority is given to the one who set it first.

Timing screens of the official APP and website display the overall position on the starting grid and the best average time in qualifying, the latter being displayed on the “AV.LAP” column.

During one of the official practice sessions, each driver must set a time at least equal to 120% of the average of the best 3 times set by 3 cars of different makes, and 110% of the best time set by the fastest car in its category.

 

LMGTE Am category

During one of the official practice sessions, drivers must set a time at least equal to 110% of the best time set by the fastest car in its category. The Qualifying minimum defined above for all categories will be calculated within the session in which the relevant driver took part.
