Two qualifying sessions for the second round of the GT2 European Series took place at the Red Bull Ring. Twice the Audi R8 LMS GT2 proved to be the fastest, but unfortunately in both cases it was not a copy of PK Carsport. Peter Guelinckx set the sixth fastest time in the first session, while Stienes Longin had to settle for the fifth fastest time in the second session. Pole position went to LP Racing twice.
