The French duo driving for IMSA Performance Matmut, works driver Patrick Pilet and team owner Raymond Narac, take up the 143-lap race from eighth on the grid. Porsche junior Marco Holzer (Germany) planted the 911 GT3 RSR run by the Belgium ProSpeed Competition squad on ninth position at his first qualifying session in the Le Mans Series. On the infamous 7.004 kilometre roller coaster track in the Ardennes, the 21-year-old was just one second shy of three-time champion Lieb. “We’re not quite there with our set-up,” said Holzer. “Our aim in the race is to finish and bring home the points.” Spa-Francorchamps, Marco Holzer, ProSpeed Competition
