Trent Hindman Fastest in First Biscuitville Grand Prix Practice

On Friday morning, Bodymotion Racing’s Trent Hindman was fastest overall in the first practice session for the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge at VIRginia International Raceway.  Hindman’s lap of 115.107 seconds (102.270 mph) was just over half a tenth of a second quicker than Stevenson Motorsports’ Robin Liddell.

Rennsport One’s Dylan Murcott was third quickest, just one-hundredth of a second slower than Liddell.  KohR Motorsports’ Dean Martin was fourth quickest, while C360R’s Paul Holton rounded out the top five.

CJ Wilson Racing’s Damien Faulkner was sixth quickest, followed by Motorsports in Action’s Jesse Lazare.  Guy Cosmo, Nico Rondet and Marc Miller rounded out the top 10.

There were no incidents in the session.  However, BGB Motorsports’ John Tecce stalled his Porsche on course to bring out a red flag.  The red flag with a couple of minutes to spare ended the session prematurely.

In Street Tuner, close times were the name of the game.  When the session ended, Rennsport One’s Spencer Pumpelly was fastest with a lap of 124.158 seconds (94.815 mph).  This lap was a mere three-thousandths of a second faster than teammate Connor Bloum in the No. 18 Porsche Cayman.  MINI JCW Team’s James Vance was third fastest, followed by Derek Jones in the No. 73 MINI.  C360R’s Pierre Kleinubing in the sole Audi S3 was fifth quickest.  The entire top five was separated by approximately one-sixth of a second.

Street Tuner points leader Eric Foss was sixth fastest in his No. 56 Porsche, just over a quarter of a second off the pace.  Tyler Cooke was seventh in class in the best of the BMWs, followed by Bodymotion Racing’s Drake Kemper.  Freedom Autosport’s Stevan McAleer was ninth, while JDC/Miller MotorSports’ Stephen Simpson was tenth quickest.
