Tom Dillmann set the pace in the second of Friday’s sessions at his home Formula Renault 3.5 round at Le Mans.
The Carlin-run Frenchman went to the top of the times at the halfway mark of the 50-minute session with a time of 1m22.733s, inside Oliver Rowland‘s benchmark from the morning.
Dillmann improved again by four tenths of a second with five minutes to go and remained at the top of the order, as the session was brought to an early halt by a red flag.
Egor Orudzhev took second place away from Dean Stoneman late on, finishing three tenths behind Dillmann.
Matthieu Vaxiviere was fourth ahead of recent two-time winner Tio Ellinas while Rowland took sixth.
Nyck de Vries was seventh ahead of series returnee and sole Draco entry Andre Negrao, while Sean Gelael and Beitske Visser rounded out the top 10.
