The stage was set for a showdown of speed and skill, and it was Alexandre Houssin who once again asserted his dominance, showcasing his prowess behind the wheel of the Mercedes-AMG GT3.

Starting from 2nd on the grid, Houssin wasted no time in asserting his position, storming ahead to claim victory with authority. His consistent performances have begun to cement his lead in the championship, with one hand firmly gripping the trophy. However, the looming finale at Spa, offering double points, keeps the championship battle alive and unpredictable.

Eduardo Daroca, piloting the Ferrari 296, and Richard Veenema in another M4 GT3, completed the podium, further intensifying the competition among the Silver class contenders.

A notable mention goes to Mike Landreth, who put in a strong performance in the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo2, despite the challenges posed by its Balance of Performance (BOP) adjustments.

The Bronze class witnessed Pako Sanchez piloting his Ferrari 296 GT3 to a commanding victory, strengthening his position in the championship. With Max Hubert absent from this round, the championship chase in this class experienced a shift, allowing TSR drivers Alex Rousseaux and Arben Nushi to claim 2nd and 3rd place respectively, showcasing consistent performances and adding intrigue to the championship battle.
