Russo had led the GT2 battle early on but Vilander hit the front after the driver change only for Russo to return to the Advanced Engineering car to chase down the #50 car and take the win in the later stages. Capping a strong season for AF Corse, Thomas Biagi and Christian Montanari completed the podium.
A spin at the opening corner would cost Andrew Kirkaldy and Rob Bell dearly as they finished fourth ahead of Mikael Forsten and Markus Palttala in the lone Porsche running at the finish; the sister car of Emmanuel Collard and Richard Westbrook dropping out early on.
Also in the wars were Scuderia Ecosse, with the car of Jamie Davie and Fabio Babini sporting a number of bent panels by the finish and also losing time with a puncture which helped lead to the retirement of the #2 Maserati. The second CR Scuderia car of Chris Niarchos and Tim Mullen also endured a difficult end to the year as a damaged throttle cable left the pair lacking outright speed and they trailed in well off the pace.
