Neubauer romped to victory in the Trofeo Pirelli; behind, John Wartique (Francorchamps Motors Luxembourg), Emanuele Maria Tabacchi (Rossocorsa) and Fabienne Wohlwend (Octane 126) staged a fine battle with overtaking and counter-manoeuvres right up until the final bend, rewarding the Belgian with second place and Wohlwend third. In the American series, Cooper MacNeil (Ferrari of Westlake) claimed the victory. An emotion-packed affair also in Trofeo Pirelli AM, with Danish driver Brunsborg fending off attacks from Matúš Vyboh (Scuderia Praha). On the third step of the podium was Tommaso Rocca (Rossocorsa), who grew throughout the race. Claude Senhoreti (Ferrari of Ft. Lauderdale) took the victory in the North America series in AM class.
Coppa Shell. After holding off the assaults from Fons Scheltema (Kessel Racing) in the opening stages, Roger Grouwels (Race Art - Kroymans) went on to claim the top honours ahead of Ernst Kirchmayr (Baron Motorsport) and Axel Sartingen (Lueg Sportivo). The season’s dominant force, "Alex Fox", grabbed the win in AM class, followed by Willem Van Der Vorm (Scuderia Monte-Carlo) and Michael Simoncic (Baron Motorsport), the latter producing an excellent comeback. In the Ferrari Challenge North America, Brad Horstmann (Foreign Cars Italy) triumphed once again to become champion. Finally, a one-two for the women in AM class as Lisa Clark (Ferrari of Beverly Hills) replicated the win ahead of Eileen Bildman (Ferrari of Long Island).
F1 Clienti. Hurtling around the Misano Adriatico circuit were the legendary Formula 1 F2007 and F2008 single-seaters, which back in the day were driven by Kimi Räikkönen and Felipe Massa in the Formula 1 World Championships, in which the drivers had claimed numerous honours including two Constructors’ Championship titles and one Drivers' title with the Finnish driver at the wheel.
