Friday, 12th May 2017: the second round of Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe starts in Silverstone under a cloudy sky. More than 30 cars divided into 4 classes will take part in the thrilling British weekend, starting from the Free Practices sessions.

The fastest AM and LB Cup drivers have been Wlaszik (#69, Dorr Motorsport, +2.374) and Van der Horst (#98, Van der Horst Motorsport, +12.047). 

In the early afternoon the cars are back on track for the FP2. After a red flag break in the middle of the session, Kisiel (PRO, #2, Leipert Motorsport, 2:21.621) clocked the best lap, followed by Spinelli (PRO, #17, Antonelli Motorsport, +0.286) and Postiglione (PRO, #23, Imperiale, 1.017).
