Simon Trummer led the LMP2 class for PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports, almost 0.6sec clear of Ben Hanley in the DragonSpeed entry, with James French third, a further 1.3sec adrift.

GT Le Mans saw another Sebring winner, Oliver Gavin, emerge top for Corvette Racing, his C8.R lapping a quarter-second faster than Fred Makowiecki’s best effort in the #911 Porsche 911 RSR, and 0.3 ahead of Jordan Taylor in the second mid-engined ’Vette.

Laurens Vanthoor’s Porsche was fourth, comfortably ahead of the two BMW M8s.
