First pole position of the year for Ligier Automotive and the K2R Motorsports #51 Ligier JS P3

Friday 4 January 2019, first race of the year, first round of the IMSA Prototype Challenge on Daytona International Speedway track and first pole position with the #51 Ligier JS P3 of K2R Motorsports. Great start for Ligier Automotive.

Out of the nineteen LM P3, fourteen Ligier JS P3s participate to the first round of the IMSA Prototype Challenge season. The conditions for the first qualifying of the year are not perfect: wet track for the start of the session before the rain came.

The #51 Ligier JS P3 of the American team K2R Motorsports with Garett Grist behind the wheel claimed the pole position. He set the best lap in his last lap, in 2:00.30. Two seconds faster than the #10 Norma M30 of Robillard Racing which set the second best lap.

The #25 Ligier JS P3 of the Belgium team Conquest Racing made a great comeback to competition by clinching the fourth best lap. It will take the green just in front of the second Ligier JS P3 entered by K2R Motorsports, the #64.

Don't miss the first race of the season, starting at 12h15 local time!
