DOUBLE PODIUM FOR EDIL CRIS AT SILVERSTONE
06/05/2007 - Double podium for Racing Team Edil Cris in the debut of the 2007 FIA GT. After the fourth place scored by Ruberti-Pasini and the sixth of Cressoni-Rugolo in qualify, the two F430 of the Italian team concluded, respectively, with the second and third absolute place. This is a very important result, especially considering that Michele Rugolo had his first acquaintance with a Ferrari F430 in this occasion and that the official driver Raffaele Giammaria did not take part to this race and was substituted by Damien Pasini.
Giancristiano Cavalleri (Team Manager)
"This is a very good starting point. We decided to skip Zhuai race to be very competitive in the following races. This choice allowed us to get on the podium with both crews and to obtain a prestigious and important result for the championship as well. My compliments to drivers, technicians and all guys of the team that worked hard and restless during these weeks".
"We had a tyre pressure problem yesterday in qualify that prevented us to express our full potential. Today the car was perfect and I was able to push hard and to overtake opponents as I wanted".
"I am very satisfied, both for our result and for the team's. I think we got all what we could, considered tyres problems and this being Rugolo's debut on a F430".
