Atop the second practice session of the Sebring International Raceway was Acura’s Tom Blomqvist, piloting the Michael Shank Racing (MSR) entry. Blomqvist’s performance proved difficult to eclipse, as the Swedish driver quickly navigated the technical course in an impressive time. His efforts secured the top spot in the session, further cementing Acura’s presence as a formidable force in sports car racing.
As the second practice session drew to a close, it became increasingly evident that Blomqvist’s performance in the No. 86 MSR Acura had been simply unbeatable. His lap time of 1:51.584 was not only the quickest of the session, but also 0.858 seconds faster than the next-fastest entry. His pace, combined with that of his teammate Olivier Pla, who managed to place the No. 93 Acura in sixth, left no doubt that Acura would be a formidable force in the race.
Blomqvist’s success was a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire MSR team. The Acura’s setup was perfectly tailored to the Sebring International Raceway, allowing Blomqvist to maneuver the technical track with ease. The team worked tirelessly to ensure that the Acura was properly prepared for the session, and their efforts paid off with a pole-setting lap from Blomqvist.
It appears that Acura is well on its way to claiming victory at Sebring. With Blomqvist and Pla leading the way, MSR looks to be in a prime position to take the checkered flag. The team will continue to fine-tune the Acura’s setup in the hopes of securing the win and cementing their place in motorsport history.
