Conor Daly set the pace in Spa GP3 Series free practice on Friday evening. The ART Grand Prix racer lapped the Belgian Grand Prix venue in 2m05.341s, over a tenth clear of Carlos Sainz of MW Arden.
Nick Yelloly was third fastest for Carlin, ahead of Daniil Kvyat (Arden) and points leader Tio Ellinas’s Manor car.
Ellinas provided the main talking point of the session when his rear wing flew off at high speed on the Kemmel Straight, fortunately without hitting anyone or anything.
Lewis Williamson was sixth fastest for Bamboo, followed by series returnee Alexander Sims, who will make his Carlin debut this weekend.
