The second race saw another three teams take to the podium, showcasing the drive and ambition these powerboat pilots have in reigning supreme. Friday's race seemed to have been a beneficial factor for Team El Diablo as they outshone all the other teams with their 1st position in Race 2 which took place on Saturday at 16:30. It also continued to add to the strong weekend for Team Marine Diffusion and Team Freccia Blu as they took the top three positions of Race 2 with the fastest laps of GP3 ranking them podium finishes.
