Ten Voorde secures the first pole

Larry ten Voorde has launched his title defence in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup by setting pole position at the season-opening round in Monte-Carlo. In the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, the Dutchman dominated the qualifying on the street circuit through the Principality. Several times over the 30-minute session, the GP Elite team driver managed to improve on his personal record. During his decisive lap, he clocked a time that was almost two seconds faster than the pole-setting time of 2019, when the international one-make cup last visited Monaco.

I drove a perfect lap and in some places even scrapped the guardrail slightly. But I was so gentle that the barrier didn’t punish me”, joked Ten Voorde.

Sharing the first grid row in second place is Jaxon Evans (Martinet by Alméras). The third grid spot went to the best rookie and Evans’s teammate Dorian Boccolacci. Misfortune, on the other hand, plagued Dylan Pereira (BWT Lechner Racing). Last year’s runner-up turned the fastest lap in free practice. However in qualifying the Luxembourger returned to the pits with a damaged radiator after hitting a barrier and had to abandon his qualifying attempt. As a consequence, Pereira has to take up the race from the last grid row.
