05|05|2016 - WEC SPA THURSDAY
GOOD START FOR MERHI AHEAD OF THE 6 HOURS OF SPA
Roberto Merhi started his second outing in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) in the best possible way by setting a promising best lap in today's free practice at Spa Francorchamps (Belgium).
Ahead of what will be his second race in the WEC, Roberto and the Manor team have done an important step forward from their maiden run a few weeks ago at Silverstone, where they scored their first points of the season. Roberto set a time eight tenths faster than the next fastest in the LMP2 category.
Tomorrow, Friday, the third and final free practice will be held before the qualifying that will decide the starting grid for the six hour race due on Saturday.
