Dennis jumped to the top of a standings with a 2m02.412s right at the flag, leap-frogging a trio of Mercedes to finish the session on top.
That means he’ll run last when the first five rows of the grid are determined by a single-lap dash later this evening.
The car won’t, however, be eligible for pole, having picked up a two-spot grid penalty for speeding in pitlane earlier in qualifying.
David Reynolds was second quickest in the Pro-Am #777 Erebus Mercedes, followed by former Erebus Supercars driver Maro Engel in the #77 Craft-Bamboo Mercedes.
All three of those cars improved on their final runs, which dropped Yelmer Buurman in the Team Nineteen Mercedes – who’d been quickest with a couple of minutes to go – down to fourth.
Matt Campbell was best of the Porsche drivers in fifth in the #912 EBM entry, ahead of Steve Kane who was a late improver in the #107 M-Sport Bentley.
It was a pair of Audis in seventh and eighth, Kelvin van der Linde in the #22 edging Christopher Haase in the #2, while Raffaele Marciello (#999 GuppeM Mercedes) and Alex Imperatori (#18 KCMG Nissan) were the last two to book a Shootout berth.
The unlucky entry on the bubble was the #108 M-Sport Bentley, Vincent Abril falling 0.06s short of the magic 10th spot.
