The Audi R8 LMS cars dominated the first practice session. A storming 1-2-3 for the Audi Sport customer racing squad in the demanding GT Daytona class.

Second place for the #48 car from Paul Miller Racing in the hands of Haase/B.Miller. Third place for the second Flying Lizard Motorsports entry, the #45 car shared by Canache Jr./Pumpelly/von Moltke. The #46 Audi from Fall-Line Motorsport was eleventh in class.
