Coppa Shell category delivered on drama in Race 1 lap 1 with Ericha Prinoth (Ineco – Mp Racing) using his pole position effectively to maintain lead sition, managed to keep his lead ahead of Belgian Jacques Duvyer, while Singhania, the only Indian driver almost immediately moved up into third place. 2014 Coppa Gentlemen winner Fons Scheltema took a hit as another driver made contact with him. Rick Lovat spun at the Variante della Roggia and retired. Prinoth and both Kessel Racing drivers quickly pulled away from the rest of the field along with Thomas Lindroth (Baron Service) and Eric Cheung (AF Corse).
