In the end the Maserati Quattroporte Evo, fielded by the private Swiss Team, came through courtesy of Christian Klien. This was his first outing in the Maserati, and in this FG Group series, and he had done well to take fourth in Race 1. Mauro Cesari again missed out because of a bevel gear that broke during free practice.
Starting on fifth - the top eight positions are the reverse of the Race 1 finishing order - Klien got off to another flyer and was in third by turn 1. Once more he found himself on the outside line and had to take a trip off the track to avoid the jostling in the leading pack. Things were tight behind Klien with Michelisz, driving a team Giudici BMW M3 E92 spinning after being clipped by Fumi, in another BMW, this time fielded by team Giudici.
The ex-F1 star made it back onto the track in seventh, just before Zurcher's Mercedes C63 AMG, from Romeo Ferraris, seized top spot thanks to an aggressive move on Ferlito. Ferlito's Jaguar XF/R5.0 S/C, from team Ferlito, had started on pole but was now back in fifth. Larini, who had lined up in second in the other Romeo Ferraris Mercedes, now found himself behind Biagio, third in the BMW M3 E92 fielded by Dinamic.
