Mirko Bortolotti in the No. 63 Grasser Racing Team Lambirghini Huracán GT3 was fastest in Friday’s Free Practice 2 for the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup at Misano, which took place at night. 

The Lamborghini factory driver put in a 1:33.019 lap time near the end of the session, a tenth slower than Perera’s time earlier today.

Lewis Williamson once again reeled off a quick lap in the No. 42 Strakka Racing McLaren 650S GT3 he shares with Nick Leventis, ending the 80-minute session in second (+0.189s).

Steven Kane held the fastest time early on in the No. 7 M-Sport Bentley Continental GT3, but eventually dropped to third.

Christopher Mies’ No. 1 WRT Audi R8 LMS and Marco Mapelli’s No. 66 Attempto Racing Lamborghini completed the top five.

The top 22 cars were separated by less than a second.

The session was red flagged twice, once for a puncture on the No. 67 Attempto Lamborghini and a second time when the No. 11 Kessel Racing Ferrari ended up in the barriers in Turn 13.

The No. 3 WRT Audi did not run following an electrical failure that caused a fire in the engine bay in FP1.

Qualifying gets underway at 2:15 p.m. local time, followed by the Qualifying Race 8:30 p.m.

RESULTS: Practice 2
