DAY 1 on Friday ended with a quartet at the top within less than 4 tenths: best lap time for the day was for Andrea Caldarelli (SF Ferrari 488 GT3 (1.45.819)), followed by Vito Liuzzi (FFF Lamborghini Huracan GT3 (1.45.945)), Jesse Krohn (Teo Martin BMW M6 GT3 (1.46.072)) and Marco Cioci (AF Ferrari 488 GT3 (1.46.190)).

The Spirit of Race Ferrari 488 caught fire while driven by Olivier Beretta, enduring fatal damage, but the team could continue working with a spare-car.

Saturday

DAY 2 on Saturday saw the SF Racing Ferrari of Andrea Caldarelli and Songyang Fu repeating itself for most of the day, despite losing its best time (1.44.115), posted in Session 6, for having cut the chicane slightly.
