Fourth quickest time went to the 2017 world champions, Alessandro Pier Guidi and James Calado, with the latter stopping the clock on 1’39”199. The Englishman turned out seventeen laps compared to the ten from the Italian driver from Tortona. The session’s top time was achieved by the #92 Porsche with a 1’38”082 lap.

    LMGTE Am. Finishing third fastest on the Ferrari time-sheets was the #54 crew of Flohr-Fisichella-Castellacci.

Fifth best time went to the 488 GTE of Cetilar Racing ahead of the second AF Corse entry and the two Iron Lynx-run machines. An eleventh place performance from the Kessel Racing Ferrari, confirming the times registered in the morning.
