Red Bull Ring Auto GP: Shinya Michimi tops practice for Euronova

The Japanese, who is making his second appearance of the season with the Italian team, ended up fastest in the solo 45-minute practice session on a 1m20.872s.

That put him 0.126 seconds ahead of team-mate and Auto GP points leader Kimiya Sato, who was ahead in the times until the final minutes of the session.

Sato subsequently had his best time of 1m20.998s deleted and ended up third in the times with his previous best of 1m21.176s.

Hungarian Tamas Pal Kiss, who has swapped to the British Virtuosi team for this weekend after starting the season with Zele Racing, moved up to second fastest as a result with his time of 1m21.004s.

The two Super Nova entries were fourth and fifth in the hands of series frontrunner Markus Pommer and Michela Cerruti, who scored her first victory in the series last time out at Imola.

Kevin Giovesi, who is tied for second in the points table with Pommer, took sixth place in his FMS Racing entry.
