Amongst further LMP2 domination, G-Drive Racing topped the morning session during the second day of testing at the Season 9 Prologue.

The third testing session of the Season 9 FIA World Endurance Championship featured more running with the two damaged TF Sport-badged cars from yesterday up and running.

The #46 that crashed yesterday was still damaged from yesterday and is suspected to withdraw from the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps opener due to the lack of a spare chassis tub.

TF Sport had brought over one of their European Le Mans Series Vantage GTEs to replace the #33 that Ben Keating had crashed yesterday.

The #777 D’station Racing was back up and running after spending the day in the garage for repairs but covered the least amount of laps at 21.

The first and only incident of the session was major contact between the #29 Racing Team Nederland of Job Van Uitert and the #85 Iron Lynx of Katherine Legge.

Both cars went heavily into the barriers at Blanchimont after contact. The drivers were deemed okay, but both faced significant damage with the #29 covering 35 laps and the #85 with 25 laps prior to their moment.

Apart from such, the red flag was brought out twice further after the #25 G-Drive Racing of Roberto Merhi stopped on the start/finish straight.

The #7 Toyota GAZOO Racing had completed 39 laps today as opposed to the six of yesterday after the Hypercar spent the day in the garage.

The #25 finished just ahead of the #22 United Autosports that topped both of yesterday’s sessions. It completed 48 laps of the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps with a best time of 2m04.168s.

The quickest out of the three Le Mans Hypercars was the #7 Toyota GAZOO Racing with a time of 2m04.708s and 39 laps completed, still afar from unleashing their potential pace.

The #92 Porsche GT Team topped a 1-2 works Porsche duo over the GTE pack with a time 2m12.916s and 46 laps completed during the session.

In GTE-Am, it was the #56 Team Project 1 who was fastest in the category with a 2m14.736s and 41 laps completed.
