·3 min read

Menezes eclipsed his second session best with a 2m00.035s at the start of FP3 and then dipped under the two-minute barrier with a 1m59.605s on his next lap.

The ByKolles ENSO CLM P1/01 brought up the rear of the four-car LMP1 class with Tom Dillmann's 2m02.089s, an improvement of nearly 1.5s over its previous best.

Racing Team Nederland ended up fastest in LMP2 with a 2m03.170s from Giedo van der Garde aboard its TDS Racing-run Oreca.

Paul di Resta was nearly half a second behind in the United Autosports entry, while Nicolas Lapierre took third for Cool Racing in a clean sweep of the top three for Michelin-shod Orecas.

Gianmaria Bruni took fourth in the second factory Porsche ahead of the two Aston Martin Vantage GTEs, the slower of which was outpaced by Nicklas Nielsen in the GTE Am class-topping AF Corse Ferrari.
