RACE 1: PORTEIRO LEADS A BMW 1-2-3-4

Félix Porteiro turned his first pole of the season into his and BMW Team Italy-Spain's first victory. Alessandro Zanardi overtook Augusto Farfus for third position on lap seven making it a double celebration for the team. Jörg Müller completed the BMW podium in second place.

At the first corner Andy Priaulx's car was hit by Pierre-Yves Corthals in an accident which is under investigation. Jordi Gené also got caught up in the incident and strayed into the gravel but while the Spaniard continued and finished 15th, the reigning champion's race was over.

On the same lap Tom Coronel from GR Asia and Luca Rangoni for Proteam Motorsport clashed, with the former not able to continue. The second lap was completed under safety car conditions.
