The Phoenix Racing Audi has sliced to the fastest time in Practice 2 for the Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

Crewed by the all European line-up of double Italian GT champion Marco Mapelli, Marcus Winkelhock and Laurens Vanthoor, the Audi was the first of the GT3 runners to dip under the 2:05s barrier.

The #15 R8 LMS clocked 2:04.98s with the Nissan NISMO GT-R second fastest in 2:05.38s.

Clearwater Racing were third fastest with the Ferrari 458 Italia ahead of the #10 M-Sport Bentley.

Erebus Motorsport’s #36 SLS AMG shared by Richard Muscat, Jack le Brocq and Dean Canto was fifth.

The strong pace coming from the New Zealand Trass Family Motorsport Ferrari 458 continued with the #27 entry ending sixth fastest.

Matt Kingsley was the unwitting victim of an incident early in the session resulting in damage to the #38 Class B Porsche which brought out the red flag.

The third and fourth 60 minute practice sessions continue this afternoon.
