Small Brittish manufacturer BAC won the road-legal challenge with a sub 50 second time for BAC Mono, beating Radical RXC Turbo which is a more powerful and far more aerodynamically advanced track-day car.
Good old Nissan GT-R Nismo beat both Ford GT and Aventador S, as well as it's main "ideological competitor" Porsche 911 Turbo S. Best performer in the "reasonable road car" class was Audi R8 V10 Plus, mainly thaks to it's driver Chris Ward who is no stranger to driving fast up the Goodwood hill.
Race car class was won by Justin Law in a beautiful V12 Group C Jaguar XJR12D, while Jeremy Smith in best qualifying Penske-Chevrolet Indie car botched the final run with excessive wheelspin in first sector.
