Jordan Taylor will start the Grand Prix of Charlotte from pole position after being the fastest on his # 3 Corvette C8.R with a time of 1: 14.278. The championship leader is 0.056 seconds ahead of Fred Makowiecki's # 911 Porsche 911 RSR-19. This is the fourth pole of the season for Corvette and the second in a row for the American driver.
Bruno Spengler, on his # 25 Team RLL BMW M8 GTE, is third and is followed by Jesse Krohn's sister BMW (# 24). Oliver Gavin's # 4 Corvette C8.R rounds out the top 5.
Note that GTLM qualifying was cut short ten minutes from time when Laurens Vanthoor lost control of her # 912 Porsche 911 RSR and crashed into the concrete barriers in the Infield. The Belgian was unable to return the car to the pits as the right rear suspension was damaged. He will start the race in sixth position on the GTLM grid.
Aaron Telitz claimed his third pole of the season in the GTD class in a hot session. Driving the # 14 Lexus RC F GT3 Vasser Sullivan, he set the benchmark time by 1: 17.954, 0.123 seconds ahead of Robby Foley's # 96 BMW M6 GT3 Turner Motorsport.
The # 86 Meyer Shank Racing Acura NSX GT3 Evo driven by Matt McMurry will start in third, followed by Jeff Kingsley's # 76 Compass Racing McLaren 720S GT3. Wright Motorsports' # 16 Porsche 911 GT3 R driven by Ryan Hardwick completes the Top 5.
