Mitch Evans remained in complete control of the timesheets on the second day of GP3 post-season testing at Barcelona. The Kiwi was again comfortably quickest in both the morning and afternoon sessions, just as he had been on the first day.

The MW Arden driver's best time came in the morning session, recording a 1:37.793. Matias Laine was next best, 0.255s adrift in his Manor Racing car. The Jenzer Motorsport trio of Maxim Zimin, Formula Abarth graduate Michael Heche and Ferrari protege Brandon Maisano filled positions three to five.

The afternoon session was slower due to warmer temperatures, with Evans one second off his morning benchmark. Laine was again in P2, but this time was 0.421s off the pace. Tio Ellinas was third for Arden, ahead of ART's Aaro Vainio – who had missed the morning session when he went off on his installation lap. Marlon Stockinger and Tamas Pal Kiss completed the top six for Status Grand Prix and Atech CRS respectively.

The second GP3 post-season test will take place at Valencia on November 23-24.
