Fred Makowiecki in the #910 Porsche 911 RSR turned a lap of 2:07.473 ahead of teammate Nick Tandy in the #911 Porsche 911 RSR.

Risi Competizione’s Pierre Kaffer was third with the #912 Porsche of Michael Christensen in fourth. Championship points leader Antonio Garcia was fifth in his Corvette C7.R.

Starworks Motorsport’s Renger Van der Zande topped the PC class with Norbert Siedlers, #73 Park Place Motorsports Porsche 911 GT America fastest in GTD.
