A late red flag caused by a heavy shunt of Joey Foster on the Embassy LMP2 and the last drops of rain prevented any improvement of the times already set earlier on the day by the different teams. It is unclear therefore whether the difference in the time sheets is real or not in normal conditions…

Cars that had clear laps in better track conditions were the ones that managed the best times but the intervals of somehow better track conditions were very short, especially considering the length of one lap at the Le Mans circuit. Only during qualifying we might get all cars on a common baseline in terms of track conditions and that will give a better idea of final pace. Until then… some of it will be guessing although some good hints are there already.
