Peugeot remained fastest on the official pre-race test day for the Sebring 12 Hours on Wednesday.
The No. 07 car of Marc Gene, Alex Wurz and Anthony Davidson set the pace with a 1m45.811sec lap, three tenths of a second ahead of the sister No. 08 car driven by Pedro Lamy, Sebastien Bourdais and Nicolas Minassian, with Gene and Lamy recording the best times in their respective cars.
Aston Martin sat out Wednesday's session, so Peugeot had a 2sec margin over the competition, which was led by the Highcroft HPD car. Marino Franchitti's benchmark lap was 1.5sec clear of the team's LMP2 rivals.
Competition was close in the new LMPC class, where half a second covered five of the six entrants. Andy Wallace was the pacesetter for Genoa.
Corvette held a one-two in GT2, with Risi Ferrari and the Falken and Flying Lizard Porsches its closest rivals as BMW chose to skip the session. Alex Job Racing's Jan-Dirk Lueders, Bill Sweedler and Romeo Kapudija were fastest in GTC, despite crashing late on.
Three practice sessions – one after dark – are scheduled for today, before final practice and qualifying on Friday.
