Thanks to the very fast stints of both drivers, the reliability of the Ferrari and the perfect strategy of the team, the 458 Italia # 51 AF Corse ran a perfect race from start to finish.

The success is double. In the GTE Am category, Piergiuseppe Perazzini-Marco Cioci and Matt Griffin won on AF Corse-Micheal Waltrip Racing Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 #61. The Italian-British trio ran a very hard race until the chequered flag.
