Further back, the action was heating up with Toni Forné getting overtaken by Andres Mendez and Fran Rueda. Seventh at the start, Jelle Beelen (V8 Racing #7) picked up two positions before dropping out on lap four. Carmen Jorda (V8 Racing #6) experienced a similar fate when her move through the field came to an end with a long stop in the pits.

Korjus takes the win for his crew

Contrary to his pursuers, Fabian Schiller held off in making his trip to the stands to handover to Markus Palttala. A winning gamble, because the Finn went back out ahead of Kevin Korjus and Bruno Bonifacio. But the 2010 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 champion moved into the lead on lap 24 and won in front of Bruno Bonifacio, who got around Markus Palttala three laps from the flag.

Despite a 15-second penalty for not respecting the minimum pit stop time, Raoul Owens assured fourth place for he and team mate Toni Forné, ahead of Roy Geerts (Equipe Verschuur #19) and David Fumanelli (Oregon Team #5), however his car was demoted to P8 after the penalty handed to his teammate Ash Hand. Further back, Pieter Schothorst (Equipe Verschuur #21) and Lewis Williamson (Strakka Racing #42) passed Tanart Sathienthirakul (Team Marc VDS EG 9,9 #15) in the late stages of the race, while Anders Fjordbach (High Class Racing #11) completed the list of point scorers.
