Marvin Dienst (25/Lampertheim) was the fastest driver in qualifying for Sunday's Prototype Cup Germany race at the Nürburgring. In the Ligier JS P320 of Toksport WRT, he lapped the 3.618-kilometre track in the Eifel in 1:20.055 minutes. "We're obviously delighted with pole position," said Dienst, who shares the car with Berkay Besler (23/TUR). "I promised the team a time of 1:19. Thus, it annoys me personally a bit that I didn't find the last 55 thousandths of a second."

With a gap of 0.598 seconds, second place in qualifying went to the Duqueine D08 of Gary Hauser (30/LUX) and Sebastian von Gartzen (29/Butzbach, both Racing Experience). "This is a super result for the team. We already noticed yesterday that our pace is really good," described von Gartzen, who contested the qualifying. "The track got better from lap to lap. We had perfect timing and a free lap. In the race we want to keep the position. We will definitely go full throttle."


Third place went to the Ginetta G61-LT-P3 of Axcil Jefferies (28/ZWE) and Maximilian Hackländer (32/Rüthen, both Konrad Motorsport), 0.616 seconds back. Thus, cars from all three brands were in the top three positions. Fourth place went to the winners of Saturday's race Mads Siljehaug (26/NOR) and Freddie Hunt (35/GBR, both Reiter Engineering) in a Ligier ahead of Klaus Abbelen (61/Barweiler) and Felipe Fernández Laser (33/Leipzig, both Frikadelli Racing) in another Ligier.


Sunday's race of the Prototype Cup Germany will start at 14:55 and will be broadcast on youtube.com/adac, adac.de/motorsport and youtube.com/24hseries in a free livestream. "Our goal is clearly to win the race," clarifies pole-setter Dienst. "After the one-two in Spa-Francorchamps, that would be our third triumph in the fourth race. We'll give everything for that."
