Bohemia Energy Racing with Scuderia Praha scored its second consecutive 24H Series victory on Saturday, winning the Hankook 12 Hours of Spa with a narrow lead over Herberth Motorsport.

Matteo Mallucelli crossed the line 7.8 seconds clear of Herberth’s Ralf Bohn after 12 hours of racing split over two parts on Friday and Saturday at the Belgian circuit.

The Italian shared Scuderia Praha’s No. 11 Ferrari 488 GT3 with Jiri Pisarik and Josef Kral, three weeks after the trio won the opening round of the 24H Series European Championship at Mugello.

Herberth led as the race entered its final five minutes but a suspected problem during its last-minute splash-and-dash for fuel delayed its Porsche 911 GT3 R in the pits.

Ralf Bohn recovered to finish second, also secured the A6-Am class win in the process along with co-drivers Robert Renauer and Daniel Allemann.

The top three was completed by Phoenix Racing’s Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo of Frank Stippler, Kim-Luis Schramm, Ivan Pareras and Vincent Kolb, ahead of the CP Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 in fourth overall.

Modena Motorsports claimed the 991 class win, while JR Motorsport was the sole survivor in SPX.

The only GT4 car in the field was a new-gen Aston Martin Vantage GT4 entered by PROsport Performance, which competed in the SP3 class, as not enough entries were received for a separate GT4 category.

The 24H Series is back in action in five weeks’ time with the Hankook 12 Hours of Brno in the Czech Republic.

RESULTS: 12H Spa
