The start was clean, with no trouble for anyone, the lead being quickly taken by No. 38 Zent Cerumo Lexus SC 430 putting out a 1.6 second space between him and the competition.

The race was tough, with rain falling intermittently and drivers making mistakes, sending them to penalty pit drive-throughs.

Fighting its way from the 10th place, the No. 36 Petronas SC 430 climbed on third in lap 44 and passed No.1 Reito Mola GT-R on lap 48, taking the second place. In the meantime, leader Zent Cerumo SC 430 skipped a tire change and was forced to slow its pace, leaving the podium for the No.36, also marking their second win this season.
