Just as in yesterday night’s longer qualifying session it was Black Falcon and the #10 Mercedes SLS that set the overall pace in the decisive two hour second qualifying second for the Nurburgring 24 Hours.
Mercedes power continued to lead the way in the pre-race running for the Nurburgring 24 Hours with Black Falcon setting the best time in the first qualifying session for the 41st edition of the Nordschleife endurance challenge.
According to some counts the Nordschleife has 73 corners twisting and turning through the Eifel Mountains. The 40th edition of the Nurburgring 24 Hours had just as many twists as four manufacturers and more than a dozen teams battled it out at the top of the 180 car field.
The Timbuli Racing Porsche 997 GT3 R set the pace during the first 90 minute practice session for the 2012 Nurburgring 24 Hours, grabbing the fastest time by nearly 4.5 seconds.
