Luca FilippiLuca Filippi still leads the pack in Valencia. The SuperNova driver climbed at the top of the timesheet in the first minutes of the second Free Practice session, posting a 1’23”702 on used tyres that hints to a great potential for tomorrow’s Qualifying.

The closest rival, Sergei Afanasiev, is more than 1” adrift with 1’24”857, while Kevin Ceccon closed the session in third place with a 1’25”276 that was just a bit quicker than Fabio Onidi’s best effort.

So the gaps to the lead were big, but they shouldn’t be taken too much into account because the session was deeply influenced by the weather: just moments after that Filippi had completed his flyer, an impressive rain shower did hit the track, preventing his rivals from improving their laptimes and so ending the fight for the fastest lap.

Rain was so heavy that it soaked the track immediately, forcing the teams to call the cars back in the pits to mount wet tyres.

With high chances of rain forecasted for tomorrow, the team and the drivers were happy of getting some experience on the wet, and in such conditions Fabrizio Crestani and Sergei Afanasiev emerged as the best of the pack. They both posted a 1’51”1, ahead of Adrian Campos Jr. with 1’51”3. Giovanni Venturini was quick too with 1’51”4, while Daniel de Jong followed with a low 1’52” lap.
