ELMS round 3: Red Bull Ring

The third round of the 2014 European Le Mans Series championship takes place on July 19 and 20 at Austria’s picturesque Red Bull Ring. The name of the race in German is the “4 Stunden am Red Bull Ring.”

The field: 33 cars (8 P2, 13 GTE, 1nd 12 GTC). The latest entry list is here — note the withdrawal in the last few days of the #80 Kessel Racing Ferrari GTE car

Results of practice 1 are here. In addition, Sportcars365.com offers up a practice 1 results summary here. Spoiler: Race Performance’s Oreca 03 - Judd was fastest during the session.

A second practice is scheduled for 3:00pm local time on Saturday.

On Sunday, qualifying gets underway at 9:30am local time while the 4 hour race starts at 2:00pm local time.

Live timing is available here.

Just under half an hour left in Practice 2 and the two Judd-powered P2s are at the top of the time sheet, just like in Practice 1. Does the Red Bull Ring really suit the Judds or are Race Performance and Newblood by Morand Racing just the best teams so far this weekend?

And boom, just after I wrote that, the Thiriet by TDS Racing, Jota, and Signatech cars all jump ahead of the two Judd-powered entries. And then the Morand car goes fastest again.

Sixth is the #28 Greaves car, a full second off the pace.

you can tell who the 'proper' drivers are through t1 - they're the ones who don't touch the inner kerb at all and carry the speed in one swift motion as if it's a fast corner. the other guys seem to attack it as if it's a slow corner, like the first half of a chicane.

speaking of t1, i realise i should know this but is it 4 wheels over the white line, or 4 wheels off the kerb?

i think the lmp2s are getting a bit squeezed here. the importance of having a good line through the last corner (and the relative lack of grunt in a straight line) is making it really difficult for them to get past the ferraris in particular on the main straight. there's quite a lot of moves happening into t1 rather than in the acceleration process on the straight. whilst it's really quite spectacular, i reckon we might see one or two lapping shunts more than usual during the race as a result. i'm pretty sure it's more pronounced than last year, but happy to be corrected.

Free Practice 2 results are here. Highlights by class:

P2: Newblood by Morand Racing fastest by .008 ahead of Race Performance. Thiriet by TDS Racing, Jota, and Signatech all within a half second of Morand's time.

GTE: SMP Rcaing fastest by nearly a half second over the #55 AF Corse car. Ferrari were 1th through 3th and then 6th through 9th — the non-prancing horse interlopers were the Proton Competition Porsche in 4th and the Gulf Racing UK Aston-Martin in 5th.

GTC: A SMP Racing Ferrari also lead the way here (#71 car of Ladygin, Basov, and Persiani). Secong was the Team Russia by Barwell BMW Z3. Six of the top eight positions went to Ferraris, the exceptions being the Team Russia by Barwell BMW and the Prospeed Competition Porsche, which was 4th fastest during the session.

Sunday morning will be tough ... I guess I will tape the Tour de France, watch F1 on the TV and ELMS on one monitor with T&S form ELMS and F1 on the middle screen.

Weeks without a race and then everything at exactly the same time.

Looking forward to catching the ELMS race tomorrow.
Unfortunately, the Pirelli World Challenge race #2 from Toronto will overlap, so I'll miss a little in the middle.

Abundance of great racing is a good problem to have!

starting grid here: http://elms.alkamelsystems.com/Resul..._Grid_Race.PDF

another impeccable qualifying session from jota, aside from a spin on the lap before tincknell's fastest. really good show from the ligier too, though it looked a bit of a handful compared to the other cars. bertolini (smp racing) and magnussen (formula racing) are the other polesitters.

race start in 50 minutes
