Behind the battle for second was much closer and came down to a fight between the second Barwell Lamborghini, the reigning champion TF Sport Aston and the Team Parker Bentley.

In the end Liam Griffin and ex BTCC driver Sam Tordoff came out of that battle ahead with Derek Johnston and Jonny Adam of TF Sport in third. The Team Parker Bentley of Rick Parfitt and Seb Morris was fourth ahead of the second TF Sport Aston of Mark Farmer and Jon Barnes.
