24h Nürburgring 2022 live in the ticker: qualifying and race

Forza Ferrari is the name of the game at the 50th ADAC 24h Nürburgring: Luca Ludwig conjured up the #26 octane126 Ferrari to pole position in top qualifying on Friday evening and for the first time won the Glickenhaus Trophy for the fastest driver in the “Green Hell” secured. With a time of 8:09.469 minutes, he was the only driver to remain under the 8:10 minute mark, giving his family the seventh pole position in the “Eifel-Marathon”.
His father Klaus Ludwig is the record holder at the ring with six poles. For Ferrari it was the second pole position after the Farnbacher team in 2011. “Sensational! I hoped so. We had to rebuild the car and we still had a few problems yesterday. But today everything was fine. The tire came out after three corners and was then perfect in the working window. That was an almost perfect lap,” says Luca Ludwig, whose second lap of 8:10.406 minutes would have been enough for 1st place on the grid.

Second: Augusto Farfus in the Rowe BMW

In the end he was 1.171 seconds ahead of the Brazilian Augusto Farfus in the #99 RoweBMW, who with a time of 8:10.640 gave the team another place on the front row of the grid after pole in 2021. “Great! We expected to be in the leading group, but not in such a tight field. This is an indication of how exciting the race will be. I’m very happy with the quality,” says Farfus.

Third place went to Britain’s Jordan Pepper in the #7 Konrad-Lamborghini, fourth place went to Christopher Haase in the #22 Car Collection Audi. The fastest Mercedes-AMG was the #12 Bilstein-Mercedes-AMG with Luca Stolz, the best Porsche was the #25 Huber-Porsche with Nico Menzel.

Third: Jordan Pepper in the Konrad Lamborghini

Before the final showdown, four drivers had secured the last free places for their teams in the hunt for the Glickenhaus Trophy and the best grid positions in top qualifying 1. Sheldon van der Linde in the #98 Rowe-BMW, ​​Maro Engel in the #4 Getspeed-Mercedes-AMG, Matthieu Jaminet in the #27 Toksport-Porsche and Matteo Cairoli in the #28 Dinamic-Porsche came out on top and each gave a teammate the same Experience of two free laps through the “Green Hell”.

Maro Engel couldn’t go hunting for his third Glickenhaus Trophy after 2016, 2019 and 2020. “In my first lap I still had yellow flags in Hatzenbach. Then full attack – I don’t know where I could have found more time. I gave everything and fortunately it was enough.”

With 8:11.039 minutes, Sheldon van der Linde clocked the best time of the weekend up to that point, having previously set the fastest lap of all three qualifying sessions with 8:14.771 minutes. “My lap was really clean, we delivered,” says the South African, who had already won both DTM races at the Lausitzring last weekend.
