The opening practice session for Sunday’s California 8 Hours at Laguna Seca was headed by Audi Sport Team Land, whose R8 will be shared by Christopher Hasse, Christopher Mies and Connor de Phillippi.

The #29 car lapped the 2.238-mile course in 1min24.203sec, to go two-tenths quicker than the similar WRT Audi of Robin Frijns, Stuart Leonard and Jake Dennis, with Audi Sport Team Magnus – Pierre Kaffer, Kelvin van der Linde and Markus Winkelhock – taking P3, 0.53 off the top spot.

The Porsche North America Wright Motorsport entry piloted by Jorg Bergmeister, Pat Long and Romain Dumas was fourth, followed by the K-PAX McLaren, which will be shared by Alvaro Parente, Ben Barnicoat and Bryan Sellers.

The Invitational class Mazda 3 V8s of MARC Cars Australia were 11th and 12th overall.

In GT4, it was the Craig Lyons/Kris Wilson/Thomas Merrill Aston Martin Vantage of TRG that proved fastest, ahead of the Porsche Cayman MR of Daren Jorgensen, Hutton McKenna and Vesko Kozrov.

Another Aston Martin – the Charlie Putman/Eric Lux/Charles Espenlaub-driven machine of Automatic Racing was third, ahead of Ian Lacy Racing’s Ginetta G55.

Prequalifying begins at 3.20pm local (Pacific) time.
