McLaren take care of his return to Sarthe! Inception Racing took pole position 24H of Le Mans 2024 in the LMGT3 category thanks to Brendan Iribe on the #70 McLaren. This is the first time that the British brand has taken a class pole position at the Le Mans event, making its return to Le Mans after a 26-year absence.

However, the American had a big scare at the start of the session: on a flying lap, the McLaren driver made a mistake... in the last corner, at Ronnement, spinning off! More fear than harm for the poleman of the day, who then improved in the following lap by setting a time of 3'58″120.

Second place goes to Aliaksandr Malykhin: the Belarusian, who rides under a Christophian license in WEC, failed eight tenths from pole position on the Porsche n°92 from the Manthey PureRxcing stable. The Top 3 is completed by the Ferrari No. 62 of the JMW Motorsport team, driven by Giacomo Petrobelli.

A very varied ranking at the top, since there are five manufacturers in the first five places with the No. 77 Ford Mustang in 4th position and theAston Martin Vantage #27 in 5th place. The second Aston Martin, that of D'Station Racing, will start 6th on Saturday, ahead of the No. 82 Corvette and the No. 60 Lamborghini.
