Bertram Allen (IRL) & GK Casper
Bertram Allen (IRL) and GK Casper (Canto 16 x Quantum) matched the winning score, finishing second hot on their heels after stopping the timers in 44.93 seconds.
Gianni Govoni (ITA) & Lucaine
Gianni Govoni (ITA) and Lucaine (Lenardo x Salamander) gave the home nation something to cheer about, being even closer to the second-place finishers, just five-hundredths of a second slower.
