Al igual que el pasado año en el Circuito de Yas Marina, las 12 horas en el Circuito de Sakhir en Bahrein se dividieron en dos mitades de seis horas, interrumpidas por una pausa de dos horas como estaba previsto.

De los 12 coches inscritos, solo dos lo hicieron en la categoría Pro, los McLaren 720S GT3 de 2 Seas Motorsport, equipo con base en Bahrein. Los 10 restantes se dividían entre Pro-Am, Am y GT4.

Tras terminar la primera mitad de la carrera en cabeza a pesar de una parada en boxes no programada debido a algunos problemas con la caja de cambios, el 720S #33 del equipo 2 Seas Motorsport hizo un gran comienzo cuando comenzó a anochecer en Bahrein, dejando Isa Bin Abdulla Al-Khalifa, Ben Barnicoat y Martin Kodric solo migajas a sus rivales y consiguiendo una holgada victoria.

El Porsche 911 GT3 R de Dinamic Motorsport con Roberto Pampanini, Mauro Calamia y Stefano Monaco acabó segundo a una vuelta, mientras el resto se fue ya por encima de las dos.

La categoría Pro-Am era la más numerosa, y en ella también estaba inscrito el Ferrari 488 #46 de Kessel Racing con Valentino Rossi, Luca Marini y Alessio Salucci. Desde la octava posición de la parrilla, Uccio recibió una penalización por cruzar la línea blanca al salir del pit lane y llegaron en quinto lugar al ecuador de la carrera.

En la segunda mitad tampoco pudieron recortar terreno y finalmente se conformaron con la cuarta plaza por detrás del Mercedes AMG GT3 de Ram Racing compartido por John Loggie, Christopher Froggatt y Callum Macleod. Aún así, el trío italiano cerró el podio en Pro-Am.

Rossi, Marini y Uccio ya fueron terceros en la general en la edición de 2019 en el Circuito de Yas Marina en Abu Dhabi a pesar de una penalización, con 30 coches en aquella parrilla.

Cuhadaroglu, Zollo, Fumanelli y Tabacchi eran los únicos inscrito en la categoría Am, finalizando sextos con el Ferrari por detrás del Bentley Continental GT3 de Parker Racing con Pierce, McKay y Meyrick al volante.

De los tres coches en GT4, la victoria fue para Villorba-Corse Mercedes con D'Auria, Strignano, Randazzo y Camarlinghi.

La próxima edición de las 12 horas del Golfo está programada provisionalmente el 18 de diciembre de este año, volviendo de nuevo a Abu Dhabi.
