Imola Heat, Free practice 2: Team Virage and RLR MSport stay on top

On Friday, 13 May, the drivers braved the sweltering Italian heat at the Imola Autodromo in Italy for the second free practice session. The #16 Team Virage Ligier JS P4, once again, outpaced its rivals, as did the #75 RLR MSport Ligier JS2 R.

The word ‘heat’ in the Ligier European Series has never been more aptly applied: with temperatures above 28 degrees, Imola is already putting the series’ drivers to the test.

In the Ligier JS P4 category, Team Virage’s #16, with Gillian Henrion, was again the quickest in the session with a time of 1:47.855s. Next came Pegasus Racing’s #17 of Dimitri Enjalbert and Anthony Nahra, just 0.202s behind. Simone Riccitelli and Nicola Neri in LR Motorsport’s #3 finished third.

RLR MSport has started the weekend strong, with its Ligier JS2 Rs setting the times to beat for the second time today. The #75 driven by Haytham Qarajouli led the way, with the fastest lap of 1:54.786s, while the #40 driven by Horst Felix Felbermayr was second. COOL Racing’s #4 and driver Cédric Oltramare finished third behind the British team’s GTs.

There is still more on-track action to come today. The two qualifying sessions for tomorrow’s races will take place at 4:20 pm and 4:45 pm.
