Fortec Motorsport’s Ben Barnicoat ended the penultimate session of Eurocup pre-season testing at the new track record holder for FR2.0 machinery at Jerez.
Barnicoat cleared Anthoine Hubert‘s milestone within just thirty minutes of running and then became the only driver to dip into the 1:38s.
With Thursday runner-up Ukyo Sasahara sitting the day out, teammate Darius Oskoui picked up the slack to take second, three and a half tenths behind the leader.
Hubert, meanwhile, placed third?as one of the six drivers to beat his track record from yesterday.
Martin Kodric took fourth ahead of Simon Gachet and Manor MP’s sole representative Lasse Sorensen.
Anton De Pasquale was seventh, with Mathias Kristensen and Amaury Richard just two tenths apart behind him and Hugo de Sadeleer completing the top ten.
The Eurocup pre-season will conclude with this afternoon’s session.
