On 27th July 2013, the Spa Francorchamps 24 Hours race got underway, as the penultimate round of the Blancpain Endurance series. Ferrari won two categories, the Pro-Am and the Gentleman Trophy.

In the Pro-Am category, the victory went to the AF Corse driven by the British Duncan Cameron and Alex Mortimer, the Irishman Matt Griffin and Finland’s Toni Vilander, who covered 557 laps of the demanding Belgian circuit.
