Harry Tincknell led the way in final practice for IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship competitors at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

The Englishman improved on Filipe Albuquerque’s 1:14.880 lap time from Friday by setting a 1:14.552 lap in the closing stages of the session in his No. 55 Mazda RT24-P.

It was just 0.002 seconds quicker than Pipo Derani’s No. 31 Action Express Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R, which paced the majority of the session.

Derani made a late-session attempt to improve his time but was unable to.

The No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Acura ARX-05 of Albuquerque was third quickest, followed by the improving No. 60 Meyer Shank Racing Acura of Dane Cameron.

Tristan Vautier completed the top-five in the No. 5 JDC-Miller Motorsports Cadillac.

Ryan Dalziel paced LMP2 in the No. 18 Era Motorsport Oreca 07 Gibson, while the No. 4 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R of Tommy Milner was quickest in GT Le Mans, in a Corvette Racing 1-2 run.

GT Daytona was led by the No. 1 Paul Miller Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo of Madison Snow, who recorded a 1:24.237 early in the session.

It was 0.218 seconds faster than the No. 16 Wright Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R of Trent Hindman, with Zach Robichon third quickest in Pfaff Motorsports’ Porsche.

The only notable incident came with contact between the No. 55 Mazda of Oliver Jarvis and Dwight Merriman’s Era Motorsport Oreca that sent the LMP2 car into a high-speed spin.

Both cars continued without any apparent damage.

The session, which started in foggy condition, was delayed by a few minutes due to poor visibility, with conditions quickly improving once cars took the to the circuit.

Qualifying is scheduled to get underway at 1:05 p.m. PT.

RESULTS: Practice 2
