Maxime Martin and Dirk Müller have taken the #77 BMW Sports Trophy Team Brasil BMW to its first win. The yellow Z4 took the lead on the opening lap, briefly lost it after the pitstops, and then Müller held off Stéphane Ortelli in an exciting last twenty minutes of the season opener.
However, Ortelli and team-mate Richelmi (#3 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT Audi) were the first of the Series’ regulars, claiming important points for the championship. Belgian Audi Club Team WRT-drivers Enzo Ide and Christopher Mies completed the podium.
In Pro Am, the #70 GT Russian Team Mercedes of Christophe Bouchut and Alexey Vasiliev took the lead shortly before the end of the race, while the Fjordbach brothers lead the whole race in Silver Cup, at the wheel of their #74 ISR Audi.
