A ten minute downpour made it impossible for the drivers to go out onto what had been a dry track in the opening twenty minutes, allowing them to mount slicks for a few laps.
When the red flag came out, the fastest on the track was the No.7 Aston Martin driven by Turner/Enge (1:59.220). The Maseratis were in fifth with Bartels/Bertolini, seventh with Longin/Pier Guidi, fifteenth courtesy of Ramos/Bernoldi and Heger/Mueller in twenty-second.

The track was wet from start to finish with the conditions making it almost impossible for the drivers to go out at times.
The quickest of the Maserati MC12 drivers were Michael Bartels and Andrea Bertolini, with a fourth fastest time of 2:15.357 set on the very last lap. Topping the timesheet is the No.8 Aston Martin driven by Nygaard and Mucke.
Next up in terms of time for the Maseratis was the No.34 car with Bert Longin and Alessandro Pier Guidi on board. Pier Guidi was making an FIA GT1 return in the MC12 after appearing for Play Team and Vitaphone Racing Team (with whom he scored a win in last season's closing meet at Zolder).
The other black and green Vitaphone Racing Team car, the No. 2 crewed by Ramos/Bernoldi, finished in 17th place while Heger/Mueller's No.33 came nineteenth.
