Lexus (Turismo-Deafsun) immediately turned on the speed, and quickly built up a significant lead over the car in second place.
Mercedes-Benz (FT_Ant) were able to move up from third to second on the second lap, but weren't able to push for first place. In the end, Lexus (Turismo-Deafsun) recorded a stunning pole-to-win victory, a crowning glory following an utterly dominant series.
