At the end of the three hour race, the Tridents outclassed the Aston Martin of Deletraz-Piccini, the Saleen driven by Bert-Janis and Gollin-Babini's Aston Martin. With this result, Bartels and Bertolini move to the top of the drivers' standings and Maserati stays in the second of Manufacturers Cup.
