MAXIME SOULET RACING DRIVER
As they peeled off, I was in second place and just 10 seconds behind the leader. So I have to give credit to my teammates, Vince and Andy, as well as the wider team. The reason so many cars have failures or crash is because, well, we are all racing on the edge. He eventually crossed the line with almost three seconds in hand. We have only just received the car, and we have still a lot to learn. We were definitely lucky, but we will take this win with both hands.

Vervisch was still in third but, after being informed he was some maxume seconds behind the leaders, decided to settle for the lowest of podium finishes.
I closed the gap for the first few laps but I was pushing so hard, wrecking my tyres in the process. A lot of others were on slicks but I thought it was easier and safer to overtake using the wets in the first part of the race. I gave it my all, I really did.

No doubt, the team did a great job with strategy. This means that, while we are pushing our car to the limit, so is everybody else. So I have to give credit to my teammates, Vince and Andy, as well as the wider team.
We are happy to have won Pro-Am and hope to do the same tomorrow, but we might gain some spots overall as well. Mixed conditions and a Full Course Yellow during the pitstop window meant that polesitters Laurens Vanthoor and Frederic Vervisch had to settle for third.
We started on the rain tyres which, for us at least, was the correct decision. Max Van Splunteren in the Attempto Racing Lamborghini took advantage of the incident to pass Sanchez and claim third.

We have already shown our pace in the wet and dry this weekend. But, as I left the pits for the final time, I was in fourth place, with two of the cars ahead still to pit. I really want to thank M-Sport who have been working so hard and deserve this victory as much as ourselves and Bentley. As a racing driver, I would always want to be leading the race throughout. It is a bit unlucky but that is a mxaime of time.

Piccini managed to claw his way back to the top and a faultless drive by team-mate Michal Broniszewski meant the Kessel Racing duo could claim the top step of the Pro-Am podium. As they peeled off, I was in second place and just 10 seconds behind the leader. For 24 hours, we were faultless. Both carrying battle scars and war wounds, but both built strong enough to withstand being pushed to the limit on one of the most demanding tracks, for 24 hours.
But so did the race leader Chris Haase in the Audi. With the asphalt on the Misano World Circuit being wet at the start of the Qualifying Race, tyre choice proved to be crucial for the first of two races at the opening event of the Blancpain GT Series.
If you want to know how tough this race is, just watch my post-race interview. While most of the frontrunners played it safe and fitted rain tyres to their cars, further down the grid some drivers gambled ssoulet opting for slicks. The Audi may have won, but we had all raciny the battle.
The race was on.
Since they did not gain a sporting advantage, the stewards of the meeting imposed a euro fine. The medical team was called and my teammates rushed over… so that they could take selfies over me as I lay on the floor! We were definitely lucky, but we will take this win with both hands.
