Gianni Morbidelli stays on top in second Superstars practice at Donington Park

The former Formula 1 driver led the morning's first session by more than a second, and then backed that performance up be setting a best time of 1m33.568s in free practice two, leading home his Audi team-mate Thomas Schoffler by nine tenths.

Thomas Biagi was third fastest - albeit another four tenths adrift of Schoffler - while his BMW team-mate Stefano Gabellini was fourth.

Francesco Sini (Solaris Chevrolet) was fifth, ahead of big name stars Johnny Herbert (Team Swiss Maserati), Max Pigoli (Ferlito Motors Jaguar) and Tonio Liuzzi (CAAL Racing Mercedes).

Max Mugelli finished ninth in the second CAAL Racing entry, while British Touring Car Championship regular Tom Onslow-Cole (Ferlito Motors Jaguar) was 10th.
