Enrique Ruiz was quickest in practice for the Japanese V-Prix ahead of Nathaniel Powers as the top twelve drivers were within one second of the fastest time.
Franklin and Downton look the early favourites in Japan - occupying four of the top five positions - ahead of DS Mathershaw while AMR also showed strong with Hoskins fourth and Beyer eighth. Westwood and Lopez were next up with Kiara Thunder in the mix in twelfth - the last driver within a second of Ruiz's fastest lap time.
Two drivers had their maiden outings in an official FV session with Oleksandr Zozukya in the FIRST in place of Douglas Bacon and Gabriele Garcia in at North Star in place of Aleksy Nowosinki. Zozulya was less than one tenth away from team Hutchinson with a lap time good enough for sixteenth, but Garcia struggled with mechanical gremlins and ended the session slowest.
