During the hair-raising event in Puerto Portals, crowds watched with growing excitement as the Austrian driver Kris Rosenberger took the lead in the Speed category, driving a 1981 Porsche 911 RSR, to finish 3 minutes ahead of the runner-up, driver Steve Perez.
In the Regularity category, the Belgian team of Phillip Vlieghe and Filpp Deplancke were victorious in a 1983 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2. Mike Anderson and Daniel Beltran took home first place in the Legends category with their 1986 Ford Sierra Cosworth.
