BMW Rahal Letterman Racing Team went 1-2 in GT with Dirk Muller setting the fastest lap at 56.137 (96.193 mph). Tommy Milner was 0.181 seconds back in the sister car with the class pole-sitting Porsche of Flying Lizard Motorsports' Jörg Bergmeister third in class at 56.416 (95.718 mph).

Jeroen Bleekemolen went quickest again in GT Challenge for Black Swan Racing. His lap of 59.404 (90.903 mph) in Black Swan Racing's Porsche 911 GT3 Cup entry gave him a 0.302-second cushion of TRG's Andy Lally. GMG Racing's James Sofronas was another 0.085 seconds adrift.
