The remaining pack prepared to once again roll out together for the closing action. Sasaki and Rossi meeting the flag without improvement from fourth and fifth before the hotlaps registered, Garcia, Ryusei Yamanaka, Joel Kelso and Ivan Ortola doing likewise.

Dennis Foggia captured third with Artigas fifth before Masia demoted the pair in the dying seconds for the final front row position.
