The best of the Ferrari GTEs will set off from ninth position on the starting grid of the Virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans, after Friday’s time trials. The 488 GTE no. 52 driven by Enzo Bonito of the FDA Hublot eSports Team, lapped in 3:48.717, two-tenths of a second faster than the second Prancing Horse car, AF Corse no. 71, qualified by Jordy Zwiers. The Dutch driver’s time of 3:348.934 on the 13,626-metre French circuit earned him twelfth place, just ahead of Kasper Stoltze in no. 51; the Danish driver clocked 3:49.058. The 488 GTE no. 54 of Strong Together qualified in twentieth with Tony Mella recording a time of 3:51.481, while pole went to the Porsche no. 93. Maranello’s virtual cars were subject to Balance of Performance adjustments, which significantly slowed the 488 GTE and will require further refinement for the race setup.
