Having qualified 7th in class, World Connect Competition was able to leave the major field of competitors behind before entering the first corner of the race as the green flag flew to announce the race start. The following nine hours of racing ran as regular as clockwork for the Team, who eventually reached first position in GT2 class. However, pressure on the drivers of World Connect Competition increased significantly the closer they came to the ten hours mark. Only fifteen minutes before the end of race, the climax was reached and Artur Szykula of World Connect Competition had to defend the lead in class, only to be overtaken a few minutes before the chequered flag. His initial response was: "Second place is still more than we expected, but the appetite grows with eating!"
The whole Team of World Connect Competition is very proud of this achievement, which couldn't be done without careful preparation, a high standard of driving and reliability on track. Driver Richard Roberts said "we were right there and I am really proud of the job we did."
