Harry Tincknell posted the quickest time in night practice for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring on Thursday evening, leading by two-tenths.

The Mazda Team Joest driver set a quickest lap of 1:46.953 to take his No. 55 Mazda RT24-P to the top of the timesheets ahead of Whelen Engineering Racing’s Felipe Nasr.

Tincknell’s co-driver Olivier Pla set the pace in Practice 2 while Nasr had gone quickest in Practice 1 earlier in the day.

Timo Bernhard ensured both Mazda RT24-Ps were in the top three, ahead of Dane Cameron’s Acura ARX-05 in fourth.

Corvette Racing led Ford Chip Ganassi Racing in GT Le Mans, with Antonio Garcia posting a 1:56.954 in his No. 3 Corvette C7.R.

That car missed the first part of the session after undergoing an alternator change.

Magnus Racing’s Andy Lally led GT Daytona meanwhile, ahead of the No. 86 Meyer Shank Racing Acura NSX GT3 Evo and Grasser Racing Team Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo.

PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports remained in the lead of the LMP2 category, meanwhile.

Precision Performance Motorsports didn’t go out on track after its heavy crash in Practice 2, but is expected to return for tomorrow’s sessions.

The night practice session ran without major incidents, and will be followed by Practice 4 at 8 a.m. EDT on Friday prior to qualifying.

RESULTS: Practice 3
