  • The misfortunes of one person make the happiness of others. While the #51 of Alessandro Pier Guidi, Davide Rigon and Alessio Rovera had the race in hand, the Italian car found itself blocked at the entrance to the pit lane by the #19 Lamborghini, conceding more than 'one minute into the matter.
  • This funny situation benefited theAston Martin Vantage GT3 n°7 from Comtoyou Racing, co-driven by Mattia Drudi, Nicki Thiim and Marco Sørensen, who won at the finish of this Centenary edition.
  • A historic victory since it is only the second time that the British manufacturer has won the Belgian classic. The first and only time was in 1948 with St John Horsfall and Leslie Johnson in an Aston Martin 2-Liter Sports. Comtoyou Racing therefore ended a 76-year drought in this event for the Gaydon brand.
  • This is the first success for the association between the Belgian team and the English firm, whose partnership began at the start of 2024.
  • La Ferrari n°51 of Pier Guidi, Rigon and Rovera must be content with second place. Third place ultimately went to the #4 BMW M3 GT32 (WRT) of Dries Vanthoor, Sheldon van der Linde and Charles Weerts.
  • La Ferrari 296 GT3 No. 93 of Sky Tempesta Racing in which we found Lilou Wadoux finished in 16th place, fourth in the Bronze category.
