The 6 Hours of Fuji saw the first practice sessions at the foot of Mount Fuji today.

After a difficult start to the weekend, Lotus turned the corner and completed the second session successfully.

In the morning, car #32 had some problems with the gearbox. The team was able to fix the Lotus LMP2 and was ready for the second practice.

The afternoon session was better for Lotus. Kevin Weeda, James Rossiter and Vitantonio Liuzzi completed a total of 25 laps in car #32. Thomas Holzer and Mirco Schultis in car #31 added 30 laps to the team’s tally.

Luca Moro will not be racing in Fuji because of private reasons, so Thomas Holzer and Mirco Schultis will share the cockpit of car #31 this weekend.

Thomas Holzer, Race driver #31:
“It was a difficult day for us because we had problems with the brakes in the first practice. It was better in the afternoon and we could do 30 laps. Now, we will get ready for tomorrow and will use the third practice to collect more data to find the right race setup.”

Vitantonio Liuzzi, Race driver #32:
“We could only do two laps in the morning because of a problem with the gearbox. The mechanics could fix the car for the second practice and we were able to get some mileage. We will now work on the setup of the car in order to close the small gap to our competitors in front of us. All in all, it was not a bad day for us.”
