In addition to its reliability, the sport coupe completed the fastest race lap for a front-wheel-drive car with a time of 9m 04.710s.

The winning car placed 16th overall, with its sister cars placing 51st and 72nd.

Kris Nissen, Volkswagen Motorsport director commented, "Three years with the Scirocco and three class victories in succession. Volkswagen has once again proven its reliability and efficiency. I'm incredibly proud and happy for the entire team, especially as the 24-hour race was such a huge challenge this year. We won the class with Bio Natural Gas, which is the most environmentally friendly fuel, and taken good positions in the overall classification."
