On the following day, the #88 car continued to impress, placing P2 in the sole session of the day, raising hopes for a successful qualifying. The sister #1 car also performed well, running with good pace and securing P9.

Qualifying day in the heat of Portimao was focused and intense for both cars. A good performance from all six drivers resulted in the #1 car securing P4 and the #88 car P5, positioning the team well for the 6-hour race.

The week-end culminated in a thrilling victory in the 6 Hours of Portimao.
