But just before the start the rain set in. Best lap: 1.21.996 – final position: 16th overall and 7th in the class.
Third and final heat took place Sunday afternoon and the ITG Racer started in 20th overall and 7th in the class. The weather was acting up again. After the second – and very wet heat – the sun was now out, but would the rain return? Again, ITG went for the dry tires, but again the rain came right at the start of the heat. The start went well, however. ITG advanced 10 spots in the race after turn 1, and next the hunt for a top 10 finish began. The ITG Racer reached 6th, but slid out after being over-daring. The end result was a 15th place finish overall and 7th in the class with a best lap of 1:31,334.

But after 5 laps, the racer was given the technical flag and had to head for the pit. In the pit, the officials checked the racer for an oil leakage. No leakage was found and the racer could continue, but it was too late as all the opponents were long gone. Best lap: 1:07,365.
Second heat was on Sunday at noon with no clouds to be seen in the sky. The ITG Racer started 10th overall and 5th in the class after yesterdays efforts. The start went well and ITG was in 5th after turn 1, but then the engine died and the ITG Racer was parked at the side of the track. Best lap: 0:00,000. Bad luck!
Third and final heat took place Sunday afternoon, and now ITG Racingteam would show the rest what they were made of. ITG started back at 30th place – dead last, but overtook 14 cars on the first lap alone. ITG Racingteam finished 6th overall, which meant they finished the weekend at 3rd overall.
