Tassi tops the second practice from Briché

It was Attila Tassi who topped the second Free Practice session at Barcelona, in the Hell Energy Racing with KCMG’s Honda Civic. On his first flying lap the young Hugarian clocked a 1:54.273 that nobody was able to beat.
Immediately afterwards, the session was red-flagged for a few moments to recover Martin Ryba’s Volkswagen Golf from the gravel trap outside T3.
When action resumed a number of drivers were able to improve, getting closer to Tassi’s mark, but they all remained behind.
Julien Briché placed his JCB Compétition Peugeot 308 in second position (1:54.434) ahead of Kris Richard’s Target Competition Hyundai i30 N (1:54.551).
Jean-Karl Vernay was the best-placed title contender, in fourth position (1:54.623) in the Leopard Lukoil Team’s Audi RS3 LMS; he set his own fastest lap at the end of the session, demoting his rival Dušan Borković to fifth (1:54.742).
The Serbian was followed by Tassi’s teammate Josh Files (1:54.795) and the current points leader Mikel Azcona in his PCR Sport Cupra (1:54.867). Maxime Potty was the last to break the 1:55 mark, ranking eighth in the Comtoyou Racing Golf GTI (1:54.964).
The top-ten were rounded off by Norbert Michelisz’s M1RA Hyundai (1:55.087) and Ashley Sutton’s WestCoast Racing Volkswagen (1:55.277).
Action will resume tomorrow morning at 11:45 with the Qualifying session.
