After the qualifying heats, the FALKEN Motorsports BMW M6 GT3 started the main race in 31st place, while the team's Porsche 911 GT3R started out in 18th place. In this year's race, we were fortunate to have sunny weather from start to finish; however, with many crashes occurring throughout the race, we were reminded of just how difficult a race it is to run without trouble. Nevertheless, the team was able to come together to perform as one due in part to the reliability of FALKEN tires. As a result, Team FALKEN Motorsports' BMW M6 GT3 finished 6th overall while the team's Porsche 911 GT3R came in 21st overall.

After the race, the vehicle that had placed second overall was disqualified due to a rule violation. As a result, FALKEN Motorsports' BMW M6 GT3 advanced to fifth place in the overall rankings, while FALKEN Motorsports' Porsche 911 GT3R advanced to 20th place overall.
