The second DTM Series practice at Brands Hatch ended with Augusto Farfus quickest for BMW.

Farfus continued the pace he had been showing in the early of the opening session to quickly better the time set Robin Frijns in Practice 1.

It was a slow start to the session for BMW’s Philipp Eng who remained in the pits while everyone else headed out on track.

Nico Müller displaced Farfus with less than a minute remaining on the session, with the Brazilian reclaiming the top spot on his next lap.

The Swiss driver found himself being pushed down the order as Frijns went second quickest.

Behind Müller, Dani Juncadella was fourth fastest.

The 2015 DTM champion and former Formula One driver Pascal Wehrlein was fifth for Mercedes. 

It was more Mercedes’ behind with Edoardo MortaraLucas Auer and championship leader Gary Paffett.

Reigning champion René Rast was ninth with fellow champion Marco Wittmann rounding off the top ten.

With this being the first time the DTM has raced the full Grand Prix circuit the fastest time will end up being the lap record.

The first qualifying session of the weekend gets underway at 11.20 local time with Race 1 starting at 13.30.
