A late flier from Loic Duval put the No. 54 CORE autosport Nissan Onroak DPi at the top of the time charts in the final on track session at the Roar Before the 24.

The Frenchman’s best lap of 1:35.176 was 0.107 seconds faster than second place Jonathan Bomarito who had held the top spot for the bulk of the session.

Devlin DeFrancesco was third in the No. 85 Cadillac DPi-V.R. for JDC-Miller Motorsports.

Bomarito’s teammate Timo Bernhard clocked the fourth-fastest time but his No. 77 Joest-run prototype stopped on track midway through the session and was towed back to the garage. That brought out the lone red flag of Session 7.

Nico Lapierre was fastest of the three LMP2 competitors that took part driving the No. 81 Oreca 07 Gibson for DragonSpeed.

Patrick Pilet led GT Le Mans in the No. 911 Porsche 911 RSR followed by Antonio Garcia’s No. 3 Corvette Racing Chevrolet Corvette C7.R and the No. 912 Porsche of Mathieu Jaminet.

Only 15 cars turned laps: six from the DPi class, three from LMP2, and six GTLM.
