By Tarek Ramchani

The Paul Miller Racing team performed very well in TUDOR United SportsCar Championship qualifying session at Detroit. Dion von Moltke dominated the field with his Audi R8 LMS and took a great pole position in GTD class.

The South African Audi driver was the fastest within the GT Daytona field setting the fastest time in the session, 1:33.546 9. Dion von Moltke is sharing the #48 R8 LMS with factory driver Christopher Haase.

Earlier today the #48 Audi was heavily damaged in the second practice session. The Paul Miller Racing crew worked very hard to repair the car and to make it ready for qualifying.

The Paul Miller Racing entry was ahead of strong rivals representing various brands. Second place in class went to the #33 Dodge Viper GT3-R. The #007 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 quailified in third place.

With no GTLM (GT Le Mans) cars at Detroit, GTD is the only GT class taking part in the TUSC event.
