ReportEdit

The race was run under varying weather conditions over the 24-hour period, with occasional heavy rain leading to length safety car periods several times. The #33 Jetalliance Aston Martin led the race early on, yet was forced to drop out after 158 laps. The lead was then shared by a group of cars all running on the same lap, including both Vitaphone Racing Maseratis as well as the Scuderia Playteam Maserati, as well as the PK Carsport and Carsport Holland Corvettes.

Nearing the final hour of the race, the #1 Vitaphone Racing Maserati had a lap lead over Carsport Holland, but a mistake on a slippery track led to the car becoming buried in a gravel trap. While the car was being extracted, the Carsport Holland Corvette would take over the lead, remaining there to take the victory. The margin of victory was 1:17.756.

In GT2, the BMS Scuderia Italia Porsche lead for nearly the entire event, eventually earning a four lap margin of victory. In the G2 class, the pair of Mosler MT900s would easily defeat other competitors, with the Belgian G&A Racing team taking the class win. Fellow Belgian team Mühlner Motorsport would take the G3 class victory, with their Porsche 997 GT3 Cup 16 laps ahead of the nearest competitor. In the Coupe du Roi relay, the JMB Racing Ferrari would be the only car to finish the event, earning them the win.
