The Hyundai i30 N cars continued to set the pace at the Hungaroring, where Target Competition’s Dušan Borković posted the fastest lap ahead of his teammate Kris Richard and M1RA’s Francisco Mora.
Hell Energy Racing’s colleagues Attila Tassi and Josh Files were the first to post provisional fastest laps in their Honda Civic cars; the young Hungarian was clocked at 1:53.756 and immediately beaten by Files’ 1:53.644.
A few minutes later, Mora improved to 1:53.166 that placed him on top of the timesheet until Borković completed a lap of 1:52.291 with 13 minutes left on the clock.
Several drivers managed to improve their times, moving up in the ranking, but no one was able to go as fast as the Serb.
Eventually, Richard was second fastest (1:53.011), demoting Mora to second, while Maxime Potty (1:53.545) in the Comtoyou Racing Volkswagen Golf GTI, Dániel Nagy (1:53.568) in M1RA’s second Hyundai and Jean-Karl Vernay (1:53.568) Leopard Lukoil Team Audi RS3 LMS filled the positions between fourth and sixth.
Tassi and Files slipped down to seventh and eighth and were followed by Autodis Racing THX teammates Loris Cencetti and Stefano Comini. Current points leader Mikel Azcona is still struggling to stay on the pace and settled in 15th position.
Four drivers were summoned by the Stewards for exceeding track limits: Files, Comini, Danny Kroes and Cedric Piro.
Reece Barr joined the session, as his car had been repaired by the Target Competition crew after his Practice 1 crash; however, he stopped on the track with a technical issue during his second lap out.
Action will resume tomorrow morning at 9:55 for the Qualifying session.
