OAK Racing #24 and Craft Racing #007 were the fastest LMP2 and GT cars in Free Practice 3 respectively
Inje: 3rd August 2013 - This morning Asian Le Mans Series teams were the first on the track to complete the final Free Practice before Qualifying this afternoon. Free Practice 3 gave the drivers one last session to familarise themselves with the circuit, and the teams a final opportunity to test out the cars before this afternoon’s Qualifying.
There was some early morning moisture in the air and on the track to contend with, but the session was free of rain and the quick times achieved reflected this. OAK Racing’s Ho-Pin Tung clocked the fastest lap time of the morning – 1:25.715 - on his 5th lap in OAK Racing’s #24 Morgan-Judd, as OAK Racing continued their impressive form in the Free Practice sessions and lead the LMP2 teams. Ho-Pin’s lap was the fastest of all the 3 Hours of Inje sessions so far.
Craft Racing built on their strong outing in Free Practice 2 yesterday afternoon to again top the GT teams. They recorded a fastest time of 1:33.594 in their 4th lap. With AF Corse the next fastest GT team, and the rest not far behind, the battle amongst all the GT cars remains fierce. Qualifying is guaranteed to be a very close affair as teams jostle for the top positions on tomorrow’s starting grid.
All the teams now have an opportunity to regroup, plan, and make any final adjustments and preparations before the first Qualifying of the 2013 Asian Le Mans Series takes place this afternoon. From now on every millisecond counts.
