Tom Sharp set the sixth fastest time, the IDL driver leaving himself with lots of work to do to keep his faint title hopes alive in the meetings opening race. Colin White was next up in his CWS prepared G55, while taking eighth on his series debut was David McDonald, running with JHR.

Century Motorsport's Freddie Hetherington was ninth ahead of the front-running G50 runners.
