Car 11 - the Mulhner Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 R snatched the lead, as Porsche again demonstrated the lap performance of their Michelin Tyres.




Paul van Splunteren in the Prospeed Competition Porsche 911 GT3R moved up to second place ahead of points leader Daniel Keilwietz in the 101 Calloway Corvette Z06R

Further back there were some casualties, with the number 23 United Autosports Audi R8 LMS of Zak Brown spinning off, and falling down the field, causing many to take divergent action.

Daniel Keilwietz made it back past the Prospeed number 61, but an excellent pitstop saw the Porsche car move back ahead. Car 11 pitted late, on lap 19, which proved to be the wrong move, as it rejoined in traffic, in 3rd place.



The Prospeed car hung on to take the chequered flag -their first win of in GT3. The result means that Keilwietz/Hohenadel are very close to winning the GT3 championship this year.

Another Corvette - number 16, run by Graff Racing, and piloted by Joakim Lambotte and ike Parisy finished 3rd, about 30 seconds behind the leading pair.
