Le Mans Series: Peugeot’s Pagenaud stuns his rivals!

Peugeot’s Pagenaud stuns his rivals!

The no. 8 Peugeot set the quickest time in the first free session, and its sister car (no. 7) in the hands of Simon Pagenaud topped the time sheets in the second one. Even though the Peugeot drivers reckoned that the 908 was not the ideal car to tackle the quick Silverstone curves, the Frenchman put in a stunning lap in 1m 44.945s beating the quickest of the Audis no. 2 (1m 46.690s) by almost 2 seconds!

The best time in LM P2 was set by the Race Performance Oreca 03-Judd in 1m 52.720, 5/10s quicker than the Strakka Racing HPD ARX-O1d.

Steave Keeting was the fastest man on the track in Formula Le Mans for the Neil Garner Motorsport squad, which is racing on home soil with a trio of British drivers.

In LM GTE Pro JMW Motorsport laid down a marker in its Ferrari F458 Italia GTC in 2m 03.006s, and the Imsa Performance Matmut Porsche dominated the GTE Am category in 2m 05.852s.

Tomorrow, Saturday, the third free practice session will take place between 09h00 and 10h00 local time.
