In the spec class was Rino Lino who TQ and lead the race until got out due to mechanical problems. Mr. Joaquin de Soto that was second when Lino went out took the lead but problems with the engine setup get him out of the position, giving the opportunity to local driver Mr. Hilton Martínez who finish in first position, followed by Samuel Zayas and Joaquin de Soto in third driven the new Serpent Cobra GT.
