21 June 2015

At the finish, Pezzuchi had a nine second advantage over Cedric Mezard in the #8 Scuderia Villorba Corsa Ferrari and almost 15 seconds over Roland Bervillé in the #34 Pro GT by Almeras Porsche. Championship leader Max Bianchi was in the fight for the podium positions for most of the race, but in the 7th of 12 laps, the Italian spun his #23 Kessel Racing Ferrari and dropped to 12th.

The race in the Iron Cup was dominated by Martin Lanting, who had started from the front row. The AF Corse-driver dropped a couple of places in the opening places, but closed in on Bervillé in the final lap, only to miss out on an overall podium finish by 0.366 of a second. Marc Sourd in the #36 Saintéloc Racing Audi and Gabriel Balthazard in the #9 Akka-ASP Ferrari diced for the other podium positions in the Iron Cup and eventually it was the Audi-driver taking second, beating Balthazard by just over half a second.

The Main Race will start at 15:05.
