Philipp Eng set the fastest lap time in the second free practice session for the Six Hours of Glen in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Despite the session being interrupted by a red flag, Eng., driving for BMW Team RLL, finished in first place. Competitors in the GTP category were incredibly close in lap times, with just one second separating 10 of the 11 participants. This session provided valuable track time ahead of the six-hour race at Watkins Glen International on Sunday, June 30.

Charlie Eastwood had a challenging start, losing control of his car during the warm-up lap. In the session, several cars were penalized for exceeding the track limits. There were two red flag stoppages, one caused by an impact at Turn 9 and another by an impact at Turn 1. Despite the stops, Eng set the fastest lap time in the BMW GTP, followed by Mathieu Jaminet in a Porsche Penske and Sebastien Bourdais. in a Cadillac Chip Ganassi Racing. Felipe Fraga led the LMP2 class, Madison Snow led GTD Pro, and Vasser Sullivan’s #12 Lexus RC F was fastest in the GTD class.
