The #74 Audi R8 continues to set the pace at the Bathurst 12 Hour, topping its second practice session in a row at Mount Panorama.
It didn’t take long for the pace to dip under 2m04s mark, Christopher Haase setting a 2m03.865s in the #74 car before the half-way mark of the 90-minute session.
That time stood until late in the session when Haase’s team-mate Christopher Mies lowered the benchmark to a 2m03.500s – clearly the fastest time of the day so far.
The #59 Tekno McLaren finished the session second fastest thanks to a 2m03.933s set by Shane van Gisbergen, while the #36 Erebus Mercedes also dipped into the threes with a 2m03.997s from David Reynolds.
The Objective McLaren was fourth fastest with a 2m04.042 from Tim Slade, with the second Jamec Pem back in fifth.
Class B was led by the Grove Porsche, while the lone Daytona Sportscar Coupe in the field lead the way in Class I.
After stoppage-free first and second sessions, there were three seperate red flags this time around.
The first came early, when Nicholas Rowe fired the #94 MARC Mazda into the wall. Christer Joens did the same in the Hallmark Audi half and hour later to spark a second red, while the final stoppage happened just four minutes from the end when #93 MARC Focus stopped on track.
