Dandelion Racing motorist Fukuzumi once more dominated throughout a late fresh-tyre shootout in the 130- min Wednesday mid-day session, establishing an ideal time of 1m21207 s.
That sufficed to defeat nearby opposition Ryo Hirakawa (Impul) by 0.241 s, although it failed of his fastest time in the early morning session and also Hirakawa’s Tuesday criteria.
The session was interfered with by no less than 3 warnings, the very first of which was activated by TOM’S guy Kazuki Nakajima dilating at Turn 4.
Not long after activity returned to, Kamui Kobayashi’s KCMG cars and truck received a left-rear slit, creating him to go off at the exact same edge, while his colleague Yuji Kunimoto endured a comparable issue later on in the session at Turn 9, creating one more standstill.
Red Bull junior Juri Vips (Mugen) had actually been blazing a trail on a 1m21819 s prior to the final standstill, yet this was exceeded by Sacha Fenestraz (Kondo Racing) after the 90- minute mark as the Frenchman published a 1m21782 s and after that a 1m21642 s.
That was the moment to defeat heading right into the closing mins, when Fukuzumi went some 4 tenths much faster to cover the session for Honda.
Fenestraz’s earlier time was great sufficient for 3rd, complied with by Dandelion’s 2018 champ Naoki Yamamoto in 4th and also the 2nd Impul cars and truck of Yuhi Sekiguchi in 5th.
Toshiki Oyu (Nakajima Racing) completed an outstanding 2 days in 6th in advance of Vips and also one more newbie, B-Max/Motopark motorist Sergio Sette Camara.
Kobayashi and also Nakajima wound up 10 th and also 12 th specifically after their earlier problems, sandwiched by ruling champ Nick Cassidy (TOM’S).
