The Ultimate Cup Series’ principal race, NAPA GT-Touring Endurance series, delivered a thrilling race on Sunday’s 4-hour race.

The #83 Racetivity Mercedes-AMG GT3 clinched the win after 102 laps on the Nevers Magny-Cours circuit. Charles-Henri Samani made a cautious start from pole position, losing the advantage briefly in the first few corners to Franck Dezoteux and his #5 Renault R.S. 01 (FIT-ITBC by AB Sport Auto), but thanks to a faultless race, the duo, completed by Emmanuel Collard, always remained at the front.

The penultimate meeting of the 2021 season saw the exceptional presence of the 9 times world rally champion Sebastien Loeb who did not go unnoticed on the track thanks to a thunderous start at the wheel of the Vortex #712, which he shared with his partner, Laurene Godey. Unfortunately, the car suffered a gearbox problem and was forced to retire later in the race.
