The first race of the weekend, scheduled for tomorrow, will see in the front row the top two drivers of the season. Right behind them the Monaco racer Charles Leclerc (Fortec Motorsports). Behind him finished Dario Capitanio (BVM Racing), at his best result of the season so far in qualify, Canadian Luke Chudleigh (Tech 1 Racing) and Briton Ben Barnicoat (Fortec Motorsports).
In the first session Isaakyan finished first in front of Simon Gachet (Arta Engineering) and Raoul Owens (Mark Burdett Motorsport). There was a single red flag, waived in the second session due to the car of the Brazilian Thiago Vivacqua (Fortec Motorsports).
