Again in second was Renaud Kuppens (Konvex Racing) .425 off the pace. The Belgian improved towards the end of the session to head the Venier/Gardelli duo, third in 1:39.941. Fascicolo/Sernagiotto came fourth as they bettered their performance in session one to finish 1"378 off the leaders.
Ragazzi/Simoni did really well to close out in fifth spot (1:40.782). They were followed, as in free practice, by Tiziano Cappelletti and Stefano Garelli (1:40.798). Alberto Vescovi (1:41.028) made seventh his own and covered only 13 laps rather than the 20 run by the others.
Andrea Dromedari (Swiss Team) took eighth ahead of Youssaf El Marnissi, once again in the top ten.

The outcome of the first 45-minute shakedown has highlighted just how close things are between the top drivers.
Quickest overall were Romagnoli/Varini, who stopped the clock at 1:38.687. In second came Renaud Kuppens (Konvex Racing), 0.167 back, with the Hernandez/Garcia duo placing third in the Bowers & Wilkins VIP car; the third-placed crew's time of 1:39.540 showed just how much their local knowledge counted for something. Fourth went to Alberto Vescovi (1:39,615), a driver who appeared in the first two Maserati Trofeo seasons and who recently competed in the Middle East Trofeo series. Behind Vescovi, 1"1 down, finished Andrea Dromedari (Swiss Team) with AF Corse's Sbirrazzuoli/Chionna next up. The AF Corse car was the first that failed to break the 1'40" barrier but their 1:40.245 was still enough, by a thousandth, to beat Venier/Gardelli into seventh. The eagerly awaited Fascicolo/Sernagiotto (1:40.432) took eighth while Moroccan Youssaf El Marnissi merits a mention for claiming ninth ahead of Alvaro and Carlos Rodriguez Quiroga.
