HTP Mercedes pair Maximilian Buhk and Franck Perera backed up first place in Saturday's qualifying race with victory in the main Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup race at Misano.
After claiming victory in a turbulent qualifying race the previous evening, Buhk and Perera produced a dominant performance in the main race to score another win - crossing the line 24 seconds ahead of the rest of the field.
Behind them, there was jubilation for Bentley Team M-Sport as Vincent Abril and Steven Kane secured a hard-fought second place after leading a four-car battle in the latter stages of the race.
Kane managed to keep the resurgent second HTP Mercedes of Dominik Baumann behind in third, ahead of Daniel Juncadella for Akka-ASP and Christopher Haase in the Sainteloc Racing Audi in fourth and fifth respectively.
Having struggled in the qualifying race, the ROWE Racing BMWs enjoyed a stronger Sunday with Tom Blomqvist/Phillip Eng and Jesse Krohn/Markus Palttala finishing sixth and seventh respectively.
The Strakka Racing McLaren of Rob Bell and Andrew Watson was eighth, followed home by Mirko Bortolotti in ninth and the Team WRT Audi of Pieter Schothorst and Jake Dennis in tenth - a solid result on an otherwise disappointing weekend for the duo.
Reigning champion Enzo Ide suffered a spin early in the race, which meant partner Christoper Mies had a recovery race to claim 11th.
There was also disappointment for Michael Meadows and Raffaele Marciello in their Akka-ASP Mercedes after a strong performance in the qualifying race, the pair making a second unscheduled pitstop which demoted them from second to 19th.
