Jordi Torres began the reconquest by winning the first race at Le Mans

Matteo Ferrari was the next victim when he crashed in the seventh part of the fifth lap, when he was once again in the lead, ahead of Héctor Garzó, who thus found himself in first place, now exclusively chased by Jordi Torres and including the Swiss Randy Almost seven seconds behind Krummenacher with three laps to go.

At the start of the last lap, Garzó barely got a 95 thousandth advantage over Torres, taking advantage of the variant of turns three and four to overtake his rival and take the lead, defending his position well until he saw the checkered flag .

Krummenacher closed third in over 7.5, with Tito Rabat sixth, Mika Pérez eleventh and María Herrera twelfth.
