The track in Sarno is obviously getting faster as the nearly 200 drivers lay down more Bridgestone rubber down and the drivers pick up the pace. The first one or two sessions is about breaking in the engines, and getting the chassis ready.
Here are the group positions (fast lap) for each driver in the three sessions:
32 – Gary Carlton – 4 (1:10.128), 9 (1:07.153), 12 (1:06.687) – P22 overall in final session
137 – Jacob French – 16 (1:08.873), 21 (1:07.751), 21 (1:07.346)
Wimsett is 37th overall in the final session of the day, about 0.8 off the overall fast time. A tenth of a second can be anywhere from four positions to eight positions, with Schureman and Orcic right there in terms of lap time. French and Cook are on about the same pace throughout the day while Kinnear and Gottsacker continue to find speed.
