Team LNT Fastest In Second Shanghai Practice

Cool Racing quickest again in LMP2

Team LNT’s #6 Ginetta G60-LT-P1 topped the timesheets in the second WEC practice session of the day at Shanghai, Charlie Robertson setting a 1:48.127.

That time was 0.061 quicker than the fastest of the two Toyotas, the #8, which finished the day with a 1:48.188. The #1 Rebellion, which topped FP1, completed the top three, with a 1:48.288.

Robertson’s time was the fastest of the day, and six tenths faster than Gustavo Menezes’ flyer from FP1. It also marked the first time that Team LNT and indeed the G60-LT-P1 have topped a WEC session.

In LMP2, Cool Racing was once again the fastest team, a 1:49.754 from Nicolas Lapierre putting it top by over a second. United Autosports and High Class Racing (the top Goodyear team) completed the top three. Phil Hanson’s best time was a 1:50.397 in the United ORECA.

GTE Pro meanwhile, saw AF Corse lead the way, meeting latecomer Miguel Molina (who was delayed in his travels due to visa issues) and Davide Rigon leading the way in the #71 Ferrari 488 after sitting out FP1. The two Aston Martin Vantage AMRs completed the top three the #97 leading the #95, the pair five and seven-tenths adrift.

Dempsey Proton Racing was quickest in Am with its #77 Porsche 911 RSR, after a 2:01.935. Like FP1, the fastest car in Am was quicker than multiple GTE Pro cars. The #91 Porsche and #51 Ferrari both were unable to match the #77’s times.

The #90 TF Sport Aston Martin slotted in second, splitting up the Proton Porsches which finished up first, third and fourth in the category, the #78 ahead of the #88.

The action continues tomorrow with Free Practice 3 at 9:50 am local time.
