The polemen led the start of the race followed closely by the #63 Lamborghini of Emil Frey Racing and the #54 Porsche of Dinamic Motorsport.

If Iron Lynx won, Raffaele Marciello, Jules Gounon and Dani Juncadella’s Mercedes-AMG #88, had to finish second to take the crown, but she didn’t have the pace to fight for the podium.

The Lamborghini finally passed in the last moments of this 2nd relay.

Porsche Dinamic #54 stopped early and took the lead for the final hour of racing.
