Rene Rast on top in close final free practice

4 July 2014

The second and final free practice session for the Blancpain Sprint Series round at Zandvoort started under a menacing sky, but conditions remained dry until the end of the 80-minute session.

After an early red flag – the #21 Tonino Team Herberth Porsche had come to a halt when it lost a rear wheel – the fight for the top times continued all through the session. Eventually it was René Rast in the #2 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT Audi who ended on top. He beat Series newcomer Dominik Baumann in the #76 BMW Sports Trophy Team Schubert BMW by 0.136. Jeroen Bleekemolen, quickest in the first free practice, had to settle for third this time. Eleven cars ended up within the same second.

Quickest driver in Silver Cup was Mateusz Lisowski in the #4 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT Audi, while Sascha Halek in the #27 Grasser Racing Team Lamborghini was quickest in Pro-Am.

Qualifying Practice starts tomorrow at 09:00, Qualifying race at 13:45. Both sessions can be followed live on the Blancpain GT Series website.
