  • Ferrari finds the top of the timesheet before the Hyperpole. The #50 of Antonio Fuoco, Miguel Molina and Nicklas Nielsen set the reference time for Free Practice 3 in 3:27.283 through the Italian driver, author of pole position in Sarthe last year.
  • La Porsche n°6 of Kévin Estre, Laurens Vanthoor and André Lotterer took second place 0.108 seconds from the lead.
  • The German manufacturer will only have one car to fight for pole position since the No. 12 Hertz Team JOTA of Callum Ilott, Will Stevens and Norman Nato is withdrawn from the Hyperpole due to the accident at the end. Free Practice 2. The British team is in fact engaged in a race against time to rebuild the chassis of its 963.
  • Dries Vanthoor, author of the best time in the qualifying session the day before at the wheel of the #15 BMW, once again distinguished himself by completing the podium at 0.149 seconds.
  • Panis Racing set the best time in LM P2.
  • Free Practice 3 was marked by several accidents. The most important concerned James Cottingham at the wheel of the McLaren United Autosports' #720 3S LMGT59 Evo, triggering a red flag at Tertre Rouge. The British manufacturer experienced two problems in quick succession as the #70 Inception Racing car stopped on the track after a fire started. The No. 59 still set the best time in the GT3 category in 3:57.558.
