Müller Leads Crucial Supercup Austin Practice

Sven Müller led the Friday practice session ahead of the final two rounds of the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup at the Circuit of the Americas, in a session that could well be a substitute for qualifying.

Müller headed Kuba Giermaziak of the VERVA variation of the Lechner Racing Team by nigh on four tenths of a second, with Spaniard Alex Riberas in The Heart of Racing by Lechner run car third.

Seventeen point series leader Philipp Eng was fifth for Team Project 1 and the inclement weather this weekend means this potentially crucial session could give Eng a lot of work to do in the remaining races.

Michael Ammermüller was a solitary position ahead of Eng in practice but will need much more to steal the title as he sits thirty-one points off the series leader. The man second in the standings Christian Engelhart couldn’t drag his MRS-GT Racing car beyond seventh.

We conclude with the Brits, taking to the water like… well ducks to water. Paul Rees was the standout in seventh and he lead MOMO-Megatron Team PARTRAX teammate Ben Barker (seventeenth) and VERVA Lechner man Ryan Cullen in eighteenth.

The schedule for the US Grand Prix remains in a state of limbo due to inclement weather. It really does look like a practice session could decide the fate of our title battlers in the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup.
