The Timed Practice has been completed and was ruled by local Davy Jeanney, but American Tanner Foust fights back.


Rain, rain, rain, and once again rain. The weather has not changed for the Timed Practice. French Citroën campaigner Davy Jeanney drove his Citroën C4 to the fastest time here, with setting 36,445s being the only driver to get himself under the 37 seconds mark. While no non-French competitor were able to get in the Top 3 of both the two Free Practice sessions, now US ace Tanner Foust (Ford Fiesta Mk7) fought back to set the second fastest time. Third became Philippe Tollemer (Citroën C4) again, leaving Marc Laboulle (Citroën Xsara), Samuel Peu (Peugeot 207), Fabien Pailler (Peugeot 207) and Mats Lysen (Renault Clio Mk3) behind.


Pole  Krzysztof Skorupski made good use of his VW Polo Mk4 to claim the best time of the S1600 drivers from Dane Ulrik Linnemann (Peugeot 207) and Norwegian Andreas Bakkerud (Renault Twingo Mk2). In the TouringCars field that young Swede Anton Marklund (Ford Fiesta Mk7) did another good job by keeping Irishman Derek Tohill (Ford Fiesta Mk7) and Belgian Pedro Bonnet (Volvo C30)behind.
