Having entered the pits as leader in the Gold Cup category, the #77 now rejoined a lap down on its competition, although Mitchell immediately set about cutting into the deficit as night began to fall. By the race's half-distance point, the Lamborghini factory driver had returned the Barwell entry to second in class during the pitstop cycles before handing back to MacDowall, who maintained the position despite his stint being marred by a tyre problem.
With the #77 running out of sequence with its main rivals owing to Collard's earlier-than-expected first stop, the Barwell entry was fourth in class when Mitchell handed over to his medically-cleared team-mate for a 45-minute run to the chequered flag. Collard then negotiated the chaos of a late-race safety car period to bring the car home sixth in class and 22nd overall.
Barwell Motorsport now turns its GTWCE attention to the TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa over the weekend 30-31 July.
