Chasing behind was the 4-win-in-a-row driver Dan Wells from BlackArts Racing by KCMG, clocking his fastest lap with 2:27.555, following by Darma Hutomo from ART Racing Team and Garnet Patterson from KCMG with only a gap of a second among the top 4 cars. Class B was still leading by Andy Zheng all along the series, clocking 2:37.438 the fastest lap, followed by first time AFR driver Terence Tse, with a gap of 1.2 seconds only. Since the track condition was very bad in the middle of the race, drivers were spinning out including Ni Weiliang from ART Racing Team, David Lau from PS Racing and Darma. Despite the incident occurred during the qualifying, most of the drivers had clocked a satisfactory lap time and getting well prepared for the race.
