Reiter Lamborghini duo Ricardo Zonta and Frank Kechele completed a FIA GT1 World Championship double at Navarra with victory in the main points-scoring event.
Zonta and Kechele followed up on their win in the qualifying event by taking the laurels in the championship race. They were not as dominant second time around, but their Lamborghini Murcielago R-SV still crossed the line nearly 12 seconds ahead of its nearest rival.
"The car felt quick and easy to drive from the beginning of the weekend and we didn't make any mistakes," said Zonta.
Second place went to the Hexis Aston Martin driven by Frederic Makowiecki and Yann Clairay. Makowiecki jumped from ninth on the grid to fourth on the first lap and then moved up to second on lap three.
Jamie Campbell-Walter was another fast starter in the best of the Sumo Power Nissans, jumping from fifth on the grid to second. He briefly dropped to fourth, before regaining third, and then team-mate Warren Hughes was able to hold off the advances of Tomas Enge in the Young Driver AMR Aston Martin to seal the final place on the podium.
Vitaphone Maserati drivers Andrea Bertolini and Michael Bartels extended their championship lead with seventh place, as nearest rival Thomas Mutsch (Matech Ford) retired having crashed into Alex Margaritis' Corvette while trying to regain ground lost when his team-mate Richard Westbrook spun amid the chaotic opening laps.
