The No. 12 TDS Racing BMW Z4 GT3 of Henri Hassid topped the Blancpain Endurance Series Bronze Test Friday at a very wet Silverstone.

Hassid, who was also quickest in the Monza Bronze Test, put in a time of 2:26.385, 1.948s clear of the No. 128 Horse Power Racing Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 in the hands of Andy Schulz, who led early on.

The bad weather prevented the Bronze rated drivers from going after fast times, with the No. 90 Villorba Corse Ferrari of Andrea Rizzoli already 3.631s off the pace in P3.

The session was interrupted three times; the first red flag immediately being caused by the No. 35 Nissan GT Academy Team RJN GT-R hitting the wall on its out lap, resulting in substantial damage at the front of the car.

Oil on track led to a second interruption, while the No. 458 GT Corse by Rinaldi Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 getting stuck on a curbstone brought the session to a premature end.

Out of the 44 cars entered this weekend, 30 took part in the test, while only 28 managed to complete a timed lap.
