THIRD PLACE FOR BOBBI AT BRNO

28th May 2006 - All was going well in the second round of FIA GT at Brno for Matteo Bobbi and Jaime Melo. Few laps to the chequered flag the Ferrari F430 of the two AF Corse drivers was at the top, when a drive-through penalty was inflicted on them. During the pit-stop operations the number of team members in the pit-lane exceeded the maximum allowed because of the presence of a guy cleaning the windscreen and this caused the penality, inflicted also on the other car entered by AF Corse and driven by Salo and Aguas. After the drive-through Bobbi and Melo finished third on the podium, a result that keeps them at the top of the standings.

Matteo Bobbi

"It was a shame to lose a win in such way. The positive thing is that we went on the podium again, but a win would have been useful to increase our lead in the standings. I'm disappointed, because we proved to be fast during all the race".
