Tom Coronel was third fastest for ROAL Motorsport, the Dutchman getting his first meaningful running in his Chevrolet after clashing commitments meant he was only able to complete limited running on Tuesday.

Néstor Girolami was fourth and the top factory Volvo Polestar driver with John Filippi and Mehdi Bennani next up for Sébastien Loeb Racing.

Tiago Monteiro led the works Honda contingent in seventh followed by fellow factory drivers Ryo Michigami and Norbert Michelisz. Thed Björk and Yvan Muller were also running albeit without recording lap times.
