The French duo having won Race 1, started from pole and kept the lead throughout, crossing the line ahead of the F430 GTC entered by AF Corse and crewed by Luca Rangoni and Alessandro Garofano, who drove a great race, followed by the Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 entered by Kessel Racing for Lorenzo Bontempelli and Stefano Gattuso, who took their fourth victory in the GTS class.
