#07 Peugeot leads night practice

#07 Peugeot, Sebring 2010After the #08 Peugeot had topped both daytime practice sessions at Sebring on Thursday, the sister #07 entry moved back to the front in yesterday evening's night practice.

Marc Gene led the way for the team, with a lap of 1m45.494s giving him the top spot by 0.3s.

Peugeot's main rivals had been within a second during the day, but last night the gap back to the third-placed Aston Martin Racing entry was up to 2.6s.

Highcroft led LMP2 in fourth place overall, edging ahead of the LMP1 Drayson Lola that had held third in the previous practice sessions.

JR Hildebrand set the LMPC pace for Genoa, less than a tenth of a second in front of the #95 Level 5 car.

Rahal Letterman BMW's run of one-two results continued in GT2 for a third consecutive session, with Dirk Muller the team's pacesetter. The two Extreme Speed Ferraris were next up in class. Alex Job Racing was first and second in GTC, ahead of TRG.

The only team unable to make it out in night practice - during which each driver must complete three laps - was RSR Jaguar, which remained in the pits following a failure in the afternoon session.
