In the end, the more experienced Foret would get the edge on Coghlan to deny the DMC Lorenzini rider his first WSS podium on home soil, the Scot nonetheless coming away with his best-ever international result in fourth.
Just behind, countryman Iddon would also celebrate his best-ever WSS finish, the British rider capitalising on his front row start to come home fifth, holding off charging team-mate Rolfo aboard the second of the ParkinGO-prepared F3s.
A second further back, Jack Kennedy crossed the line in seventh, holding off Florian Marino, who was forced to recover from being rear-ended by Michael van der Mark on lap six, the Dutchman mis-judging his braking to make contact and run off circuit.
Despite this, the Dutchman would fight back from 23rd to cross the line ninth, with Vladimir Leonov completing the top ten. Of the remaining points-scorers, Lorenzo Zanetti was 11th, ahead of Roberto Tamburini, Luca Scassa, Alex Baldolini and David Salom.
