British Touring Car Championship leader Colin Turkington topped Tuesday's Snetterton test with his WSR BMW.
The day of running was ostensibly for Dunlop to conduct tyre testing, including comparing the German-made 2015 tyres with the current rubber.
Different tyre compounds, ages and fuel loads made direct comparison difficult, but Turkington's best of 1m57.048s - set in the afternoon - was just over a tenth slower than the effort that put him on the front row for last weekend's Snetterton round.
The improving Aiden Moffat's Chevrolet Cruze was second with 1m57.349s, 1.5 seconds faster than the machine managed in Snetterton qualifying. The time was set on fresh tyres and running in qualifying trim.
Tom Ingram's Speedworks Toyota Avensis had set the pace in the morning, with a 1m57.634s. He failed to improve in the afternoon, but the time was still good enough for third overall.
Alain Menu's BMR Volkswagen Passat was near the front throughout the day and ended up fourth. He and Ciceley Mercedes driver Adam Morgan were the only other runners under the 1m58s barrier.
Jake Hill, who raced in the BTCC finale last year, drove AmD's Ford Focus for the final hour.
He recorded a time of 1m59.461s on new tyres, compared to the 1m59.120s (morning) and 1m59.731s (afternoon) laps of regular driver Dave Newsham, who was concentrating on set-up work.
Just over half the BTCC field participated in the test, with the leading absentees being the Triple Eight MG and Eurotech Honda squads.
