As the temperatures dropped in the afternoon, Verschur took his time, with Huger finishing fourth overall.

Roman Stanek brought out an early red flag in his Trident-running car after coming to a stop on track, while another came to a stop after Hitech F3 graduate Jack Crawford crossed the barriers into turn two.
