The formation lap saw the R8 spinning and hitting the wall right after green.
Two strong teams from GT Asia joined, with the brand new 2016 Audi R8 LMS and Bentley Continental GT3. The Audi from Phoenix Racing span in the straight when trying to overtake some GTC backmarkers, losing some positions. Nevertheless their pace was fast enough to move up into 2nd. place in the final lap. The #8 Bentley of course, was in the lead all the way to the finishline.
Interestingly, unlike other series where Super Trofeo runs their one-make races or in a standalone class, here they're categorized in GT3 class, dispite their much simpler aerodynamics and more power from the engine.
