BMW drivers Kristian Poulsen and Tom Coronel were second and third fastest, with Muller's Chevrolet teammates Alain Menu and Rob Huff in fourth and fifth respectively. Javier Villa was sixth in his BMW, with Robert Dahlgren seventh in the Volvo. BMW drivers Norbert Michelisz, Franz Engstler and Mehdi Bennani rounded out the top ten.
