- WESS championship leader, Manuel Lettenbichler put I another strong performance and batting with Blazusiak and Walker, while setting some impressive test times.
- Ending day one just four seconds behind Blazusiak, Honda’s Kirian Mirabet was sixth and the first non-WESS regular and first non-KTM pilot.
- Yamaha’s Cristobal Guerrero had a difficult start to his day when a crash cost him valuable time on lap one. Regrouping, he worked his way back up the leader board to place seventh narrowly behind Mirabet.
