Rueda-Saravia lead Teo Martín Motorsport McLaren’s 1-3 in Race 1 that makes title battle even hotter   

Agostini-Spinelli (Antonelli Motorsport Mercedes), who had crossed the line as victors, dropped to 2nd by after-race penalty following last-corner move

Chaves-Kodrić, third, complete the success of Teo Martín and reduce to 5 points the gap in the standings

Third win in Pro-Am for Schandorff-Tujula (VSR Lambo), who reduce to 2 points the gap at the top of the class standings

Cipriani gives Antonelli Motorsport some consolation with maiden Am win

Teo Martín Motorsport won Race 1 at home at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya with Fran Rueda-Andrés Saravia, completing the success with the third spot of Martin Kodrić-Henrique Chaves. Confirmation of the success, though, came hours after the race, following a 5-second penalty on the Antonelli Motorsport Mercedes of Riccardo Agostini-Loris Spinelli, which had crossed the finishing line as first following a last-corner move of Spinelli on Saravia that was deemed not entirely correct by the stewards.

The breath-taking final duel with came at the end of a superb race, rich in exciting battles and conditioned by weather conditions and tyre strategies, with teams putting on slick tyres at the second stint being rewarded. Giacomo Altoè-Albert Costa, on the home race for the Catalan, paid the mistake of keeping their Emil Frey Racing Lamborghini on wet tyres, finishing 11th and not scoring points. Ahead of Race 2 tomorrow, their advantage on Chaves-Kodrić and Rueda-Saravia has dropped to 7 points.

In Pro-Am, Frederik Schandorff, paired with Tuomas Tujula, reduced to 2 the gap in the standings, after taking their third win of the season ahead of the Mercedes of Ward-Dontje (HTP Motorsport) and Remenyako-Schiller (GetSpeed).   

Antonelli Motorsport, despite the disappointment, could enjoy success in Am with as Giuseppe Cipriani, ahead of Janine Hill-John Shoffner (GetSpeed Mercedes) and debuting Claude Yves Gosselin-Pierre Feligione (Boutsen Ginion Lambo).

THE RACE –On a wet track, the start is pretty lively with both Altoè and Schiller passing poleman Crestani at turn 2, as the Italian brakes too late. There are contacts among those who follow, which provoke Siedler to spin. Gonda is third ahead of Turner, Kodric, Tujula and Rueda. The last two get in contact in lap 1, with the Finn spinning, while in unrelated incidents, Hahn and Cipriani make off-tracks and Jedlinski gets trapped in the gravel. The rescue of the Audi requires the safety-car to intervene. 
Shortly after restart, Schiller passes Altoè and takes the lead. Third is Crestani, ahead of Turner, Rueda  and Siedler, while battle is fierce for 7th in a group comprising Gonda, Agostini, Companc, Liang and Tujulz, with some rubbing and frequent changes of positions. Eventually, it will be Agostini emerging ahead of Kodric, Tujula, Companc, Liang and Gonda. Hill leads in Am. 
In lap 13 opens the window for driver changes, with Lenz, Hahn and Basso coming in first, while Marcin Jedlinski spins. While most of the cars pitting earlier continue on wets, some of the late pitters bet for slicks, which will prove to be the right choice.
After all changes, Ramos leads with 17 seconds over a very lively group, where Spinelli and Chaves pass Costa, before touching when the Portuguese attacks the Italian. The McLaren goes in the grass, avoiding the wall narrowly but dropping to fifth as Saravia and Grenier pass him. Costa (on wets, as Ramos) keeps losing pace, being 7th behind Remenyako. In the meantime, Wilkinson goes off-track. Things get even hotter in lap 26, when Ramos has to let Spinelli and Saravia pass. Simultaneously, Chaves attacks Grenier, who spins, and gets a 10second penalty. 
Spinelli and Saravia fight fiercely for the win, while Chaves is third ahead of Grenier, Ramos and Schandorff, who charging from the back, has taken the lead in Pro-Am. In lap 29, the McLaren takes the lead from Spinelli, slightly disturbed by the lapped SPS Mercedes of Onslow-Cole.
The finale is even hotter, as Spinelli does not give up. His last attempt, in the last corner, will succeed, as the two leading cars stumble on the … Teo Martín Motorsport of Khodair, and Spinelli goes round the two McLarens
