Title rival Tobias Brink was six tenths slower in second place behind the wheel of his Audi RS 3 LMS II.

Brink headed four Audi drivers, with Lestrup Racing Team drivers Oliver Söderström and Andreas Bäckman in positions three and four, seven and eight tenths behind respectively. Hugo Nerman rounded off the top five, 1.2 seconds behind.

Axel Bengtsson of PWR Racing was sixth fastest on his debut at the Skellefteå circuit, with Exion Racing team-mates Calle Bergman and Isac Aronsson in seventh and eighth.

Lynk & Co driver Mattias Andersson and Volkswagen driver Marius Solberg Hansen rounded off the top ten.

A second one hour test session will be held at 20:00 CEST tonight.
