AKKA ASP finshed fastest in the second practice for the GT4 European Series round at Circuit Paul Ricard this evening.

The second one-hour session saw the top three cars of this morning’s practice session back in the top three. This time the #87 Mercedes-AMG topped the timing screens as the chequered flag was shown. Jim Pla’s fastest lap was a 2m14.062s - just under two tenths slower than earlier in the day.

Gregory Guilvert in the #42 Saintéloc Racing Audi claimed the second-fastest time in the session - after taking third in the opening practice session - and completed a Pro-Am one-two overall. Guilvert was just 0.030s slower than fellow French driver Pla.

Third overall was Markus Lungstrass in the #18 Hella Pagid - racing one Aston Martin. The German managed to go to the top of the Am classification with a lap that was just three tenths of a second of the pace of Pla and Guilvert. 

Fastest in the Silver Cup was CMR’s Antoine Potty. The young Belgian put the #8 Toyota fourth overall, ahead of the #55 Mirage Racing Aston Martin and the #70 Trivellato Racing by Villorba Corse Mercedes-AMG.

The #718 Centri Porsche Ticino, #88 AKKA ASP Mercedes-AMG, #89 AGS Events Aston Martin and the #15 NM Racing Team Mercedes-AMG that won both races here at the end of last year.
