The AF Corse Ferrari F458 Italia took a one-lap win over the No. 91 Porsche Team Manthey Porsche 911 RSR in this weekends Spa race. It was nearly a 1-2 result for the Italian factory team, but a late-race pass by Patrick Pilet over the No. 71 Ferrari of Davide Rigon saw the Frenchman and co-driver Joerg Bergmeister take their second consecutive runner-up finish. As a result, Rigon and James Calado had to settle for third in class, but still marking their first podium appearances of the season.

While Bruni led from the green, it was the pair of Aston Martin Racing entries that jumped out front by the second hour, thanks to the V8-powered Vantages double-stinting their Michelin tires early. However, the No. 51 Ferrari re-took the lead shortly after, with solid stints by the defending GTE-Pro drivers’ championship and his longtime Finnish co-driver resulting in a dominant run for the Italian squad. The No. 97 Aston Martin of Darren Turner, Stefan Muecke and Bruno Senna, which briefly led early, came home in fourth, while the No. 99 AMR/Craft-Bamboo entry completed the top-five in class. More racing in June.
