Matt Fassnacht was quickest in a rain-soaked second practice session for Pirelli GT4 America competitors on Friday at Virginia International Raceway.

The Murillo Racing driver reeled off a best time of 2:09.962 in the 45-minute session, which started on a wet track and saw conditions worsen with a subsequent rain shower.

Only ten cars ventured out in the session, which was red flagged due to conditions with less than 10 minutes remaining.

Fassnacht was 0.599 seconds faster than the No. 32 Kelly-Moss Road & Race Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport of Andrew Davis in second, with Fassnacht’s GT4 Sprint-entered Mercedes-AMG GT4 setting the third quickest time.

The top two times came from GT4 East-entered cars.

The No. 44 Kelly-Moss/Photon Motorsports Audi R8 LMS GT4 was fourth quickest overall, followed by the No. 169 BGB Motorsports Porsche GT4 in fifth.

Qualifying for GT4 Sprint competitors gets underway Saturday at 8:55 a.m. EDT, followed by the two sessions for GT4 SprintX and East at 9:20 a.m.
