Like yesterday, the battle for the top spots in this group was between Sasahara (ART Junior Team), Aitken (Koiranen GP) and Jörg (Josef Kaufmann Racing).
But it was Ben Barnicoat (Fortec Motorsports) with 2 minutes remaining, who set the fastest lap of the group: 1:54.936. On second place finished Sasahara, followed by Jörg, Aitken and Callan O’Keeffe (Fortec Motorsports).
In group A, the Russian –Isaakyan, Romanov, Pronenko, Troitskiy, started on top places. But like yesterday the man who has led during the whole year, Louis Delétraz (Josef Kaufmann Racing) took the leadership of the group.
But with 2 minutes remaining, Martin Kodric (Fortec Motorsports) get us surprised with a lap time that was going to be difficult to improve: 1:55.152, not enough to take the pole position but, enough to get a Fortec one-two. Hubert, Delétraz, Hughes and Olsen completes the top 5 of group A.
