EDIL CRIS GETS SOME POINTS IN ITS FIRST 24H EVER
The Racing Team Edil Cris concluded the first 24h race of its history. The crew Ruberti/Cressoni/Pasini/Cas concluded in fifth position under the chequered flag in a full-of-twists edition of the race, whereby the abundant rain changed several times the classification on the legendary track of Spa-Francorchamps, stage of the sixth round of the FIA GT championship.
Third in qualifying, Edil Cris drivers often held the first positions of GT2 class. After about 14 hours of race, their F430 Ferrari was forced to an unscheduled pit stop six laps long, due to fix a problem to the rear window brush, indispensable in those heavy rain conditions. A few hours later another stop has been necessary to change the bottom of the car that was damaged due to kerbs, finally a last pit stop was performed by mechanics to fix the problems caused by an accident with a Maserati during the final stages of the race, when Matteo Cressoni was driving.
The teams'classification sees now, with four races still to go, the Edil Cris Racing Team in third position with 40.5 points. AF Corse is at the lead with (79), followed by BMS Scuderia Italia (41). Next round of the FIA GT championship is scheduled for the next 8 of September on the Italian track of Adria.
Giancristiano Cavalleri (Team Owner):
"It has been an intense and though race. Our drivers were perfect and did not commit any error. We experienced some little technical problems that are unavoidable in such long races but our technicians were able to fix them quickly.
By looking at the classification I see that the second place is reachable. It'd be a great result in our debut season".
