Toyota stays fastest

Toyota Gazoo Racing was also the fastest in Free Practice 2 when the FIA World Endurance Championship was run at Spa Francorchamps.

This time it was Toyota #7 which was quicker ahead of #8. The best non-hybrid car was the DragonSpeed #10, but they were almost 3 seconds slower. On the other hand, they had posted the fastest sector two times of all.

The practice was interested twice due to red flag, plus a FCY period, so not all teams were able to run their programme as planned.

ByKolles Racing Team # 4 stopped on the circuit with half an hour to go, but that was dealt with by a local yellow flag zone.

The CEFC TRSM Racing Ginetta cars did the same as in FP1 – doing one single lap only.

DragonSpeed #31 posted the fastest time in the LMP2 category again, but this time by only 0,4 of a second to the Jackie Chan DC Racing #37 and G-Drive Racing #26.

In the GTE Pro we had the Ford Chip Ganassi Team UK #66 fastest, while Porsche #91 jumped ahead of the other Ford #67. Porsche #92 was ahead of the best AF Corse Ferrari #51 and Aston Martin Racing #95, which finally had come to life. The #95 was only 1,8 seconds behind the Ford, so that was an improvement by almost a second compared to FP1.
