In the second free practice session at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Jens Reno Moller set a blistering pace on board the #11 Reno Racing Honda NSX GT3 Evo, going more than 1.5 seconds clear of his nearest challenger Coach McKansy, as Kessel Racing’s Stephen Earle went fastest of the Iron Cup runners.
The session was declared wet just as the Blancpain GT Sports Club drivers headed out, but the track wasn’t short of grip, with the top three all quickly matching their times from first free practice.
Moller occupied top spot for the opening five minutes, but was quickly displaced by FP1 pace-setter McKansy in the #17 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 2019. The HP Racing International driver continued to trade fastest laps with Moller, before Denis Remenyako put his #13 Mercedes AMG GT3 into the mix.
The GetSpeed Performance driver continued to improve and moved into first place, but then McKansy reclaimed the position with just over 10 minutes remaining. However, Moller went on to set a series of fast laps, with both of his quickest tours putting him well clear at the top.
At the chequered flag, the Dane held a 1.575 seconds advantage over McKansy, who headed Mario Cordoni’s #51 AF Corse Ferrari 488 GT3. The Italian had a subdued session but took third spot late on as he moved ahead of Remenyako.
ERC Sport’s Lee Mowle continued to improve as he reacquainted himself with the Belgian circuit, ending FP2 in fifth ahead of the first of the Kessel Racing Ferraris, Murod Sultanov. The Russian headed team-mate Stephen Earle, who topped the Iron Cup classification as he goes in search of his third consecutive title this weekend.
In eighth was AF Corse’s Howard Blank, who led much of the session in the Iron Cup class before being knocked down to second by less than a tenth to Earle.
StileF Squadra Corse’s Pavel Strukov finished in ninth overall on board the #777 Ferrari, ahead of Iron Cup contender Louis Philippe Soenen’s #50 AF Corse Ferrari, with Blancpain GT Sports Club newcomer Bernhard Loffler 11th in the #666 Lamborghini.
Next up is qualifying at 16:25, which you can follow with live timings on the Blancpain GT Sports Club website.
