The No. 60 Michael Shank Racing Ligier JS P2 Honda posted the quickest time again at Road Atlanta, completing the sweep in all four practice sessions ahead of qualifying for tomorrow’s Petit Le Mans.

Olivier Pla’s 1:12.618 lap time was the quickest in the 60-minute session, and leading a 1-2-3 for P2-based machinery.

The No. 55 Mazda Prototype and No. 2 Tequila Patron ESM Ligier Honda completed the top-three overall and in the Prototype class.

Cooler conditions saw all four classes set their quickest times of the weekend so far.

James French (PC), Daniel Serra (GTLM) and Andy Lally (GTD) led their respective categories.

The session saw only one red flag, following a spin by the No. 2 ESM Ligier Honda of Johannes van Overbeek.

Qualifying gets underway at 3:30 p.m ET.

RESULTS: Practice 4
