Team Speedcar stripped of time; AKKA ASP Mercedes-AMG fastest in Free Practice 1

28 May 2021

Jim Pla and the #87 AKKA ASP Mercedes-AMG inherited the top position in Free Practice 1 after the cancellation of the fastest lap time set by Robert Consani.

The #4 Team Speedcar Audi was deemed to have used the escape road at turns 8 and 9. Despite attempts to slow down not to gain an advantage, his lap was still a couple of tenths quicker. 

As a result, Pla's fastest time of 2m13.820s is now the fastest time of the opening one-hours session. The #87 Mercedes-AMG was the only car in the 2m13s, with Antoine Potty in the #8 CMR Toyota at 0.832s.
