The Belgian driver set a lap time of 1:42.903 in his No. 5 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT Audi R8 LMS that he shares with Marcel Fassler after previously going fastest in the morning’s opening session with a 1:44.086.

WRT once again had three cars in the top five, with the No. 1 car of Christopher Mies and Enzo Ide coming second by 0.084 seconds, while the No. 17 car driven by Stuart Leonard and Robin Frijns was fifth.
