Silverstone Snow Shortens FP3

Free practice three got underway for the FIA World Endurance Championship in very wet conditions. With sleet and rain adding to the already wet circuit, conditions were far from ideal.


Anthony Davidson wasted no time getting out onto the circuit but struggled for grip. After running off the road at Luffield, the British driver then brought out the red flag when he aquaplaned off the track and into the gravel at Aintree corner.

A fellow Brit who attempted to brave the rain was Ford GT driver, Harry Tincknell. He completed the most laps of any driver in the shortened session, with a total of three.

Before the half way stage, the snow its self was enough for the session to be red flagged, leaving only 15 laps completed by the half way stage.

On safety grounds, the session was not restarted.

WEC qualifying is set to begin 11:50 UK time.
