Kuppens finds his groove

01/11/2013 - Shanghai
Renaud Kuppens came out on top in the second 45-minute free practice session. Shanghai, China, is the stage on which act five of the Maserati Trofeo is being played out.

The Belgian put in a lap of 1'55"633, 0.424 up on the De Leener/Sbirrazzuoli duo.

The Shanghai circuit is a tricky and spectacular one that stretched the drivers, tested the Trofeo's handling and the grip of the Pirelli tyres.

Things were even behind the reigning champion with nine drivers within 1.5 seconds of each other. In third came the Swiss Team duo of Gardelli/Venier, 0.653 off Kuppens, with Cecchellero/Fascicolo in fourth. Barde claimed fifth just as the session was coming to a close, ahead of Mac and Gobbo/Cola. Just behind the Italian crew, Simoni/Ragazzi were unable to repeat their fine first session display and finished eighth. They classified ahead of the Chinese duo of Tengyl/Liu and the Cesari/Wong crew that is teaming up again after their Race 2 win at Silverstone.
