Third in the same category were Steve Wyatt, Michele Rugolo, Craig Lowndes and Andrea Piccini in the AF Corse Ferrari 458 Italia #52. Both the squads raced with the right strategy and, hour by hour, they climbed up the leader board to take the chequered flag and the historical results.

Great success also in the GTR (Gentleman Trophy). Peter Mann, Francisco Guedes, Alexander Talkanitsa and Cedric Mezard – in their Ferrari 458 Italia #51 – gained the top step of podium. Third place was reserved for Howard Blank, Yannick Mallegol, Jean Marc Bachelier and François Perrodo at the wheel of the Ferrari 458 Italia #49.

Duncan Cameron, Matt Griffin and Alex Mortimer were tenth in the Pro-Am. Winners in the 2013 edition of this Belgian classic race, the progress of their Ferrari #54 was hampered by some unlucky episodes.
