THE FERRARI VISIOM – PHOTO: JM FARINA The 18 cars that competed in this season’s final event line up on the starting line for the sixth and final season of the season. At 8:15 a.m., the green flag was awarded to the pilots who set off for the four-hour race under the sway of Charles-Henri Samani. At the wheel of the Mercedes n°83, Pollman gained the upper hand in these first moments. As usual, David Hallyday was particularly effective on the first lap and took control on the third lap after starting off. A few minutes later, despite the safety car’s first intervention (which turned out to be his only intervention), the driver of the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo resumed cruising speed upon restart and immediately attempted to pick up speed. head.

The end of the first hour is synonymous with the first wave of pit stops, especially for the protagonists in the UGT3A category. David Hallyday thus hands over the steering wheel and leadership of Ferrari to Jean-Paul Pagny, Emmanuel Collard takes second place in the Mercedes n°83 and Vincent Capillaire now drives the Mercedes n° 88. The duel between the two leading cars resumed with renewed vigor, first at a distance and then in direct confrontation. But very logically, the new leader, Manu Collard, crossed the halfway point with a lead of 1:30. MERCEDES 83 STEERS ON WINNING – PHOTOS: JM FARINA The second part of the race saw the teams adopt different strategies to make mandatory pit stops and different driver restrictions. In the lead an hour from the finish is the Ferrari n°2, but precisely in terms of pit stops the latter still needs to make three compared to the Mercedes-AMG n°2.°83’s two. So on paper, the latter has the advantage, as confirmed by the hierarchy 20 minutes after the checkered flag is presented. After that, however, Manu Collard in the lead got a drive-through for a pit stop that was a few hundredths of a second shorter, but the previously built-up gap allowed him to win ahead of Ferrari n°2. It crossed the finish line after 105 laps, including 35 in the lead.
