Trackspeed Porsche is definitely showing their track speed early on this weekend. Richard Westbrook topped the charts in the second round of practice. A 1:37.512 in the Porsche 997 GT3 R lead the way over Scuderia Vittoria and Michael Lyons.
“We’ve run through some race set-ups and both myself and David feel comfortable in the car,” Westbrook said. “There is some pressure when your team-mate is the defending champion but the whole team has extra motivation because the #1 is on the side of the car.
“We’re happy so far, but the field seems to have closed up a lot. We don’t feel like we have the quickest car but we are getting the best from it. It looks like it’s going to be a close year.”
The second Trackspeed Porsche was once again in third. Only two cars made it out of the 1:38 mark as well. Gregor Fisken and Tim Bridgman could only manage a 1:38.019.
United Autosports managed 4th again with Mike Guasch and Matt Bell. The sister Audi R8 GT3 remained in the garage.
