  • At the end of a rather calm race, it was Winard Racing which took the victory with its Mercedes #48, with Lucas Auer and Maro Engel at the wheel. The Austrian driver showed incredible pace, being more than 6 seconds ahead of the 2nd place finisher at the end of his stint. His teammate then simply finished the job by crossing the line before everyone else. There Ferrari No. 69 of Thierry Vermeulen and Giacomo Altoè (Emil Frey Racing) finished in second position.
  • Great revenge for Boutsen VDS and n°9! The Belgian team, which was unable to participate in the first race due to a mechanical problem in the formation lap, managed to take the 3rd step of the podium.
  • Team WRT had the merit of livening up the second part of the race. Valentino Rossi (n°46), at a slower pace, did not want to let Dries Vanthoor (n°32), who had clearly more pace than him, pass. The Belgian driver managed to overtake him after spending five laps behind him. A few laps later, Rossi made a mistake due to a steering problem, the race ended for the nine-time motorcycle world champion.

  • Victory for the #71 Ferrari (AF Corse) in the Silver Cup! Eliseo Donno and Thomas Fleming finished 11th in the general classification.
  • As for the Gold Cup, it was the No. 25 Saintéloc Racing Audi that won the race. The team made up of Paul Evrard and Gilles Magnus finished 9th overall.
