Till Bechtolsheimer led the way in a mixed-condition second practice session for Blancpain GT World Challenge America competitors at Virginia International Raceway.

Bechtolsheimer, in the No. 5 Gradient Racing Acura NSX GT3 Evo, posted a quick time of 1:56.134 in the 60-minute session, which started in full wet conditions before drying out.

The Bronze-rated driver led an Acura 1-2 in the session, which saw only seven of the 17 cars turn laps.

The No. 43 RealTime Acura of Dane Cameron was second quickest, followed by the No. 91 Wright Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R of Anthony Imperato in third.

The pair of K-PAX Racing Bentley Continental GT3s completed the top-five.

Both Bentleys, along with the pair of Wright Porsches, were the first cars to venture out onto the wet 3.27-mile circuit early on, although a dry line was formed in the second half of the session.

Qualifying is set to get underway Saturday at 10:35 a.m. EDT.

RESULTS: Practice 2
