Another packed weekend at Silverstone saw the ELMS take centre stage on the Saturday. With the 4 hour race usually a hard one to call it proved to be three in a row for the no26 G-Drive Racing Oreca-Gibson of Roman Rusinov, Andrea Pizzitola and Jean-Eric Vergne to extend their championship lead. Vergne took the chequered flag one lap ahead of the no21 Dragonspeed Oreca of Nico Lapierre and the no28 IDEC Sport Oreca of Paul Lafargue.  United Autosports took their first LMP3 win of the 2018 season with the no3 Ligier of Tony Wells, Matt Bell and Garret Grist taking the top spot ahead of the no7 Ecurie Ecosse / Nielsen Ligier and the no17 Ultimate Norma.

There was drama in the LMGTE category when the first two cars on the road were both given 10 second penalties for exceeding track limits.  The no66 JMW Motorsport Ferrari of Miguel Molina finished first but was subject to a 10 second penalty. However Molina finished 10.126 seconds ahead of the no88 Proton Competition Porsche of Matteo Cairoli, which when corrected means the No66 Ferrari wins the race by 0.126s.
