Final free practice for the Autosport 1000Km of Silverstone

The three and final free practice for the Autosport 1000Km of Silverstone was held this morning.

The session followed a similar pattern to yesterday and confirmed that the battle between Audi and Peugeot is back on!

The No.7 Audi R15 TDI of Audi Sport Team Joest topped the timesheets ahead of the No.4 Peugeot 908 HDi-FAP of Team ORECA Matmut. The No.8 Audi was third in the LMP1 class, while Team Peugeot Total was fifth thanks to a very hectic session.

In LMP2, the Lola HPD Coupe no.25 of Team RML picked up the top spot, setting the fastest time of the morning ahead of the Ginetta Zytek 09S no.40 of Team Quifel ASM Team and the no.41 of Team Bruichladdich Ginetta Zytek.

In LMGT2, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage no.92 of British pairing, Rob Bell and Darren Turner again showed well. It ended up second, behind the Ferrari F430GT no.89 of Hankook Team Farnbacher and the Team Schnitzer BMW M3.

The No. 47 car of Team Hope Polevision Racing was quickest in the FLM class, followed by the two Team DAMS cars, No. 44 and No. 43.

Qualifying for the final round of the 2010 Le Mans Series, which is also the first round of the ILMC, will be held at 1:10pm today. Hopefully, the session will be held on a dry track, thanks to the return of the sunshine.
