It was a just reward for Bird who has had a string of podium finishes this year.

Bird partnered Japanese driver Ryuichiro Tomita to victory in an Audi R8 LMS.

From 10th on the grid, Tomita moved the car up to seventh before handing to Bird who followed up his sensational drive in Zandvoort two weeks ago to battle through the field and clinch fourth overall at the chequered flag.
