Raffaele Marciello and, taking the chequered flag, Timur Boguslavskiy won Race Two of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS Sprint Cup in the #89 AKKODIS ASP Team Mercedes-AMG GT3, Boguslavskiy crossing the line over 6.5 seconds ahead of the #32 Team WRT Audi R8 LMS evo II GT3 of Charles Weerts and Dries Vanthoor.
Rounding out an excellent day for AKKODIS ASP was the third-placed overall finish for the #88 Audi piloted by Jules Gounon and Jim Pla.
Silver Cup honours went to the overall winners of Race One, Ulysse De Pauw and Pierre Alexandre Jean in the #53 AF Corse Ferrari 488 GT3 with second place in class going to the #99 Attempto Racing Audi of Nicolas Scholl and Alex Aka.
Victory in the Pro-Am Cup category went to the #111 JP Motorsport McLaren 720S GT3 of Patryk Krupinski and Christian Klein.
Marciello appeared to get the jump on the field at the start and immediately began pulling out a gap over Patric Neiderhauser in the #25 Sainteloc Junior Audi. Niederhauser quickly came under pressure from Dries Vanthoor in the #32 Audi, causing him to have his eyes firmly fixed on his mirrors for the remainder of the stint.
Timur Boguslavskiy maintained the pace of the #89 Mercedes in his stint and was able to enjoy a relatively trouble-free run to flag.
It was, however, the nine-time world motorcycle champion Valentino Rossi on who all eyes were fixed in the second half of the 60-minute contest. The Italian, who, on Friday evening, had said that a top-eight finish was his target at this stage in his GT3 career, came under pressure during but used all of his training and experience to bring the #46 Team WRT Audi he shares with Frederic Vervisch home in eighth position, earning his first points in GT World Challenge Europe.
The series now moves to Magny-Cours on May 13 – 15 for two rounds of Sprint Cup action.
