As in the morning session the fastest lap of the FORMULA class was driven by Johann Ledermair (Team Ledermair Motorsport), in the OPEN class Ingo Gerstl (TOP Speed) lead the field again and marked the fastest laptime of all drivers once again, even with the slight difference of +0.255 seconds to the morning session.

While Johann Ledermair (Ledermair Motorsport) confirmed the first position of the FORMULA class in the second practice, BOSS GP newcomer Andreas Fiedler (Fiedler Racing) made a good impression and finished the session on third position. “I was aiming for a lap time around 1:30 minute”, he explained after the session. “So I am very happy with the result.” Finishing the second practice with the fastest lap time of 1:30.485 min Fiedler greatly improved from the first practice in the morning with a best time of 1:32.239 min. “Since BOSS GP is a new experience for me by now, the goal for the race in Hockenheim is to get a feeling for the characteristics and special features of the series. It’s great competition, great cars, great drivers. For me it’s like a dream coming true, being part of BOSS GP and racing such a great car. Years ago I dreamed of sitting in such a Formula racing car. Now I even drive such a car”, Fiedler, competing with a Dallara Mecachrome 4.0 V8, was full of joy after practice day at Hockenheim circuit.
