posted in: Free Practice, Homepage, LMGTE, LMP | 0

With the quick­est time of the day — a 1:38.969 — the Toy­ota #7 topped the tim­ing sheets in the third free prac­tice. In LMP2 the Vail­laint Rebel­lion #31 leads the class while Ste­fan Mücke and Olivi­er Pla were fastest in the LMGTE-Pro.

Fol­low­ing on from the team’s dis­ap­point­ment at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where the three-car Toy­ota team had been look­ing strong before being struck by mechan­i­cal issues in the night, the Japan­ese mar­que will be look­ing to close the gap to Porsche in the world cham­pi­onship at the Nür­bur­gring.

After a strong lead on fri­day the Porsche fin­ished Saturday’s free prac­tice in third and fourth posi­tion with a lap time of 1:40.635 and wasn’t able to take the top posi­tion. In LMP2, Vail­lante Rebel­lion #31 post­ed the quick­est time, fol­lowed by Sig­nat­e­ch Alpine Mat­mut #35 and Jack­ie Chan DC Rac­ing #38.

The #66 Ford GT of Ste­fan Mücke and Olivi­er Pla was the quick­est LMGTE-Pro car of the day, fol­lowed by the Fer­rari 488 GTE #71 and the AF Corse sis­ter car #51. The LMGTE-Am lead was tak­en by Mar­vin Dienst in the Porsche 911 GTE #77.
