BMW pair up top.

Jorg Muller posted the quickest time in the second free practice session for the World Touring Car Championship at Pau as rain continued to affect running at the French venue.

The BMW Team Germany driver set a fastest lap of 1min 35.426secs which put him two tenths of a second clear of team-mate Augusto Farfus. Tom Coronel produced a fine drive in his SunRed SEAT to finish third while James Thompson once again put the N.Technology Honda into the top ten.

Rickard Rydell and Andy Priaulx rounded out the top six, although Priaulx was one of number of drivers to hit problems during the session as he clipped the barrier at turn 13 and ended up in the wall in an accident which caused the session to be stopped. Yvan Muller and Alain Menu were others to go off, with both taking trips off at turn two.

Oscar Nogues, taking advantage of his one-off drive following his SEAT Leon Eurocup success at Valencia, was quickest Independent in seventh overall.
