In another head-to-head with fellow US racer Joshua Berman it was Kevin Bacon who came out on top after 45 minutes of hard racing. Differences were very small on the fast Messina track and pitstop strategy could be a decisive factor. Both racers opted for a tire change half way and things stayed very much as they were all race, Berman leading Bacon with a 2 to 4 seconds gap. Berman was on a slightly more conservative fuel strategy, or was just consuming more fuel, so it could come down to the last fuel stop. And it did. Just 2 laps before the end Berman had to pull in for a quick splash which gave Bacon a change to take the lead. The remaining 2 laps weren't enough for Berman to close the 1 second gap. Good old Graham Raistrick completed the podium 2 laps down on the 2 frontrunners.
