Indianapolis, Indiana - Under a warm Midwestern sunset, the Pirelli GT4 America paddock took to the twisting, smooth tarmac of Indianapolis Motor Speedway one more time before qualifying early Saturday morning. Most of the field had no issues laying down clean 1:31s—in fact, over 16 drivers were within a few tenths of each other in the first 15 minutes of the session.

The red flag flew with 15 minutes remaining in the session due to a car making contact with the wall. The field was able to resume shortly afterward for 10 more minutes of on-track action.

In the Silver class, the #51 Auto Technic Racing BMW M4 GT4 (Austen Smith/Zack Anderson) saw the fastest lap of the session with a 1:30.596, followed by the #18 RS1 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport (Stevan McAleer/Eric Filgueiras) with a 1:31.019. Rounding out the top three was the #68 Smooge Racing Toyota GR Supra GT4 (Kevin Conway/John Geesbreght) after setting a 1:31.479.

Pro-Am saw the Smooge Racing sister car #69 car (Todd Coleman/Aaron Telitz) at the top with a 1:30.739, followed by the #52 Auto Technic Racing BMW M4 GT4 (Tom Capizzi/John Capestro-Dubets) at 1:30.878. The #50 Chouest Povoledo Racing Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4 of Ross Chouest and Aaron Povoledo was right behind them with a 1:31.132.

In Am, the #35 Conquest Racing Mercedes-AMG GT4 (Custodio Toledo/Paulo Carcasci) claimed the fastest lap of 1:31.278, followed by the #53 Auto Technic Racing BMW M4 GT4 (Alex Filsinger/Rob Walker) after setting a 1:31.302. The #20 Carrus Callas Raceteam Toyota GR Supra GT4 (Nick Shanny/Terry Borcheller) with a 1:31.405.
