The first race of the 2021 Michelin Le Mans Cup with the no15 RLR MSport Ligier of Michael Benham and Tommy Foster scoring the first MLMC win for the team since Portugal 2019.

Foster took the chequered flag after Garett Grist, in the no71 Team Virage Ligier, didn’t come in for the last mandatory pitstop as a Full Course Yellow was called, and had to go all the way around to pit just as a FCY period was ending. Grist emerged from the pitlane behind the no15 Ligier and ahead of the third placed no22 United Autosports Ligier.

The GT3 victory went to the no2 Pzoberer Zürichsee by TFT Porsche 911 GT3 R of Niki Leutwiler and Julien Andlauer after a race long battle with the no8 Iron Lynx Ferrari 488 GT3 of Rino Mastronardi and Paolo Ruberti.
