The race started with the #4 Hatsune Miku AMG getting a good start overtaking the #88 Granseed Lamborghini for 6th place and held on to that position until their scheduled pitstop.
Unfortunately, their chances to score points in the race would go in an instant when the car needed to return to the pits due to a tyre puncture.
