Daniel Zampieri survived a wild start to the race and Giacomo Altoe brought the No. 5 Antonelli Motorsport Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo home to win Pro/Pro Am Race 2 and secure the Lamborghini World Final championship.

Contact as the field came to the green flag took out several championship contenders, including Race 1 winners Afiq Yazid and Kei Cozzolino, but Zampieri was clear of the melee due to qualifying on the Race 2 pole yesterday.

Zampieri led by over 5 seconds by the time he entered the pits to turn the car over to Altoe who cruised unchallenged to the finish, ultimately winning by a whopping 19.983 seconds.

James Pull and Kelvin Snoeks finished second for Bonaldi Motorsport, followed by the No. 26 Leipert Motorsport duo of Niels Lagrange and Frederik Schandorff, while Andrea Amici held off Trent Hindman in a thrilling battle for fourth and fifth.

Target Racing drivers Simon Larsson and Dennis Lind won in the Pro Am class, while Loris Spinelli and JC Perez secured the class title in remarkable fashion, adding to their season-long championships in Super Trofeo North American and Super Trofeo Europe won earlier this year.

Perez was involved in the first lap carnage and actually made a pit stop to remove damaged body work under the ensuing safety car.

Perez, who on the live web stream said the car had significant suspension damage and was pulling to the left after the contact, started the recovery back through the field on his stint before turning the car over to Spinelli.

The Italian continued the charge and ultimately finished fourth in class on the road, but a post-race time penalty for Francesca Linossi and Stefano Colombo put the P1 Motorsports duo on the podium in third with just enough points to clinch the class title, one more than their nearest challenger.

RESULTS: Pro/Pro Am Race 2
