#29 Land-Motorsport Audi R8: Connor de Phillippi, Christopher Mies, Christopher Haase

The Audi Sport Team Land entry turned a lap of 1min24.317 to eclipse a late effort from Pat Long’s Porsche North America Wright Motorsport 911 GT3 R by 0.164sec. Long was in turn just 0.01sec faster than the K-PAX McLaren 650S of Ben Barnicoat, Alvaro Parente and Bryan Sellers. 

The faster of the two Acura NSXs was that of Tom Dyer/Ryan Eversley/Dane Cameron, and it was fourth ahead of the best Pro-Am entry, that of Jeroen Bleekemolen/David Calvert-Jones/Tim Pappas with the Black Swan Racing 911.

Sixth fell to the WRT Audi, ahead of the second NSX.

Audi Sport Team Magnus, the HKG Racing/GMG Porsche and the second Pro-Am Porsche run by Calvert Dynamics/GMG Racing completed the Top 10.

Rearden Racing’s #26 Porsche Cayman MR topped GT4, driven by Jeff Westphal, Jeff Kearl and Sean McAllister.

Qualifying starts at 10.45am PT, with the top 15 overall times advancing to Super Pole qualifying at 1.40pm PT.
