The race started in wet conditions, Paul, in the Lamborghini Oregon #63 lead the group during the start behind the Safety Car. In the first stint, the Oregon driver had to fight and keep looking over his shoulders as Basz chased him in the Audi #777 of Olimp Racing.
Once the track dried, and the pitstops were over it was the Getspeed Mercedes #6 leading the pack.
However the Chovet/Paul Lamborghini Oregon #63 was soon back in front with their teammates in the Lamborghini Oregon #19 being unlucky in a comeback attempt and ending up on the wall at Roggia, just a few km from the chequered flag.
Chovet/Paul won with a lead of more than 20 seconds over Reicher/Haase in the Eastalet-Racing Audi #23 and Wallis/Walker Getspeed Mercedes #6, who held onto third place despite a small contact that cost them a 3-second penalty.
In contrast to race one, the second race began under blue skies and the pack successfully made it through the first chicane with no incidents.
The Lamborghini Oregon #63 was in the lead straight away but 20 minutes into the race, the Kessel Racing Ferrari #133 went wide and hit the barriers, forcing the safety car.
The Lamborghini Oregon #63 dominated the first phase of the race undisturbed, behind it the McLaren #69, the Audi R8 #23 and the Mercedes #20 fought for second position. 35 minutes from the end Kessel’s Ferrari #133 once again caused an accident on the first chicane, hitting the Aston Martin #007 leading to a yellow flag for 3 laps. Most teams took advantage of this for their pit stop. More trouble a few laps later when the Lambroghini #8 went into the wall in the first chicane due to a mistake under braking bringing about the end of their race and another yellow flag.
Agostini took advantage of this and with the Ferrari #51 made a fantastic comeback and took the lead of the race.
The surprises were not over and on the same lap the Ferrari #11 of Kessel Racing ended up in the gravel at Lesmo and at the Roggia chicane, an accident caused by the Ferrari #25 after it collided with the #6 Mercedes forces the safety car to come out again at with 20 minutes of the race remaining.
At the restart the Ferrari #51 AF Corse immediately took the lead, remaining in front until the end of the race and winning ahead of the Mercedes #20 SPS Automotive Performance and the #63 Lamborghini Oregon.
After the podium a number of penalties were issued by the race director which changed the final results. The new classification saw the Mercedes #20 SPS Automotive Performance in first place, the Ferrari #51 AF Corse in second place and the Lamborghini Oregon #63 remains in third place
