Andrea Pizzitola set the fastest time in Free Practice 2 on a sunny but chilly Saturday morning at Fuji Speedway.
The Frenchman is fast developing a reputation for fast lappery and his mid session 1:33.523 in the #25 Algarve Pro Ligier JS P2 Nissan would not be beaten, Struan Moore closing the gap to just 2 tenths in the closing moments of the 90 minute session in the #8 Race Performance Oreca 03-R Judd.
Nigel Moore topped the LMP3 times for much of the session taking the #26 Tockwith Motorsports Ligier around in 1:37.2. That was eclipsed, again in the closing stages, by Scott Andrews in the #99 WinEurasia Ligier, 1:37.041 with several other P3s, including both ARC Bratislava Ginettas also in the 1:37s.
Also in the 1:37s was the fastest of the GTs, this once again the #91 Team AAI BMW M6 GT3 with Philipp Eng again setting the time ahead of the #3, 38 and #5 Ferrari’s.
