Barwell Motorsport’s Alexander Sims showed TF Sport’s Jonny Adam that he was not going to dominate again as Sims pipped him to the top of the timing screens during the second session. Whilst the prior were battling for top spot in GT3 Generation AMR SuperRacing’s Matthew George went on to lead the GT4 class times again. Liam Griffin is still in the fight for the title so Sims will be doing everything he can to help his co-driver take the title.

The gap to TF Sport’s Jonny Adam was 0.342 seconds, two tenths quicker than Adam’s time from the morning. Adam responded with going fastest in sector one and three but his second was too slow to be able to beat Sims’ time.

Phil Keen finished his session in third place, just a tenth off of Adam’s time. Jon Barnes went on to ensure both of the TF Sport Aston Martin V12 Advantages finished the session within the top four.’s BMW Z4 in the hands of Joe Osborne and Lee Mowle finished the session in fifth place, just 0.028 seconds off of Barnes’ time. Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse’s Rob Bell in the McLaren 650S was one second behind the BMW. Matt Manderson finished the session in seventh for the Ultimate Speed team in their Aston Martin. Team Parker Racing’s Seb Morris aboard the Bentley finished the session down in eighth place.
