The start of the 2010 1000km of Zhuhai.

The 2010 1000 km of Zhuhai was an auto race held on 5–7 November 2010 at the Zhuhai International Circuit in Zhuhai, China. The 1000 km of Zhuhai was the first race in China to be run under Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) regulations. The race served as the final round of the 2010 Intercontinental Le Mans Cup. Peugeot won the race and secured the Team and Manufacturer titles in the Intercontinental Cup, defeating Audi. Ferrari and AF Corse also secured the GT2 Intercontinental Cup, despite finishing third in the class behind the BMW Team Schnitzer entry.

This race also marked the first time that the ACO allowed competitors from the FIA GT3 category to compete alongside their normal categories, with Hong Kong-based KK Performance winning the inaugural race for the GTC class. This was also the last ever appearance of GT1 category in ACO-sanctioned series.
