Cameron reeled off a 1:49.280 late in the session to edge out Friday pace-setter Ricky Taylor by 0.165 seconds.

The No. 77 Mazda RT24-P of Tristan Nunez was third quickest, followed by the No. 31 Action Express Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R of Pipo Derani, who was atop the time charts for the majority of the session.

Simon Trummer again led the way in LMP2 in the No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07 Gibson.

Corvette Racing was quickest in GT Le Mans, with Oliver Gavin setting a 2:00.987 lap time in the No. 4 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R.

The session was halted early for an accident by the No. 96 Turner Motorsport BWM M6 GT3 of Robby Foley, who slammed into the Turn 5 barriers.
