The Marc VDS Racing BMW Z4 No.3 PRO entry of Bas Leinders (BEL), Markus Palttala (FIN) and Maxime Martin (BEL) took the honours in the opening round of the Blancpain Endurance Series at Monza. Safety Car was deployed during the starting of the race due to the persistent rain. The

No.2 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT Audi R8 LMS of Marco Bonanomi (ITA), Edward Sandstrom (SWE) and Laurens Vanthoor (BEL) came in second place and third place went to the No.13 KRK Racing Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 of Koen Wauters (BEL), Karl Wendlinger (AUT) and Anthony Kumpen (BEL). The Porsche 997 GT3 R No.75 of Xavier Maassen (NLD), Marc Goosens (BEL) and Marc Hennerici (DEU) was fourth.

MotoGP Champion Valentino Rossi, making his debut in the Blancpain Endurance Series, in the Kessel Racing Ferrari 458 Italia No.46 alongside fellow-Italian Alessio Salucci finished 18th after a strong drive in the first period of the race. Salucci tangled with a back-marker on the 90-minute mark. Despite the car, sporting the striking VR46 livery, dropping down the order, Rossi brought the car to finish 9th in the PRO-AM class.
