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.
