Sean Butcher (KR-Sport) found the right pace as early as the first of the three Qualifying Series where the British driver lapped around the Salbris layout in 1:01.292.
The standings’ provisional leader Mark Kimber (Strawberry Racing) topped the closing series but couldn’t come enough to prevent his countryman from taking the top spot in the overall timesheet.
Faster than his rivals in the second series, Callum Bradshaw (Fusion Motorsport) ended the practice with the third-best performance ahead of Lewis Gilbert (Persistence) and Morgan Porter (Msport) making for an all-British leading Top Five.
Ruben Moya (PSR) was classified in sixth position against the clock, preceding Alessandro Astruc (OKS), Mari Boya (Monlau Competicion), Mathilda Olsson (Strawberry Racing) and Harry Platten (BMR).
