De Phillippi started from pole position in the #1 Montaplast by Land Motorsport Audi R8 LMS and handed over to his teammate as the leader. Mies converted that lead into their second win after they triumphed in July at Zandvoort.

One more Mercedes crew reached a podium, as Marvin Kirchhofer and Indy Dontje finished third in the #48 HTP Motorsport’s car.
Callaway Competition’s Jules Gounon, who has a big advantage on the top of the championship standings, finished ninth in today’s race. He was sharing the #77 Corvette C7 GT3-R with Renger van der Zande. Philipp Eng, who is second in the championship, finished fourth today in the #42 Schnitzer’s BMW M6 GT3, which he was sharing with Nick Catsburg.
