Nicky Pastorelli topped the timing sheets in Thursday’s post-qualifying night practice session for tomorrow’s Hankook 2015 Dubai 24 Hours.
The V8 Racing Corvette driver recorded a time of 2:00.049 in the largely uneventful two-hour session, ahead of the #3 Black Falcon Mercedes and #30 Ram Racing Mercedes. Most teams were focusing on pitstop and driver-change practice, as well as discovering how the new Hankook tyres behave in cool night temperatures.
The #28 Aston Martin and pole-sitting #12 Porsche were fourth and fifth-quickest, respectively. The #25 Black Falcon Porsche once again topped the Cup class, ahead of the #7 Lechner car. The SP2 class polesitter also topped its category in this session.
Friday’s action gets underway with a half-hour warm-up at 10:30am UAE time, with the Hankook Dubai 24 Hours itself getting underway at 2pm.
