After being the fastest in the opening sessions at Monza and Silverstone, Henry Hassid also topped the third Bronze Test of the Blancpain Endurance Series season at Paul Ricard.

The French driver who shares the No. 12 TDS Racing BMW with Nick Catsburg finished the session 0.281s clear of the No. 11 Kessel Racing Ferrari 458 of Michael Broniszewski.

The No. 51 AF Corse Ferrari of Francisco Guedes ended up in third overall and fastest in the Gentlemen Trophy after topping the timetables early on.

Sergei Afanasiev put in the fourth quickest time in the No. 85 HTP Motorsport Mercedes SLS AMG GT3, being the first of the four Pro cars entered in the session.

31 cars took part in the Bronze Test, with the Emil Frey Racing Jaguar not delivering a timed lap. Besides the usual number of spins made by the amateur drivers learning the circuit, there were no notable incidents.
