Adria's weekend finishes under Piscopo's sign

Moreno Leonardi (Europa Corse, Team Manager):

"The double podium of Dillmann is a very good result even if we aimed at the victory. I enjoyed the appraisal that the French driver showed towards our championship. This will very likely extend our collaboration to the Vallelunga race too. Prandi , even if at times, proved during the weekend to have good potentialities that we will try to highlight in the final race of the season."

Angelo Corbetta (Team Minardi By Corbetta, Team Principal):

"I am really satisfied. In the second part of the championship the performances of our single seaters have improved and Zipoli, after today's results, can aim at the third final place. Our other two drivers are growing too, Dalle Stelle got some points in both races and Piancastelli arrived ninth in race two."

Roberto Venieri (BVM-Target, Team Manager):

"Unfortunately Cicatelli did not manage to get in the two races those result he expected. After the bumping of yesterday, the fifth place harvested today helps him to keep a bit of margin over the opponents in the fight for the third place, that will be tight till the end. It's been a pity for Ricci too, who was forced without any responsibility, to an early retirement after the fourth place in race one."

With the fastest lap and the victory in race two, Edoardo Piscopo (Team Ghinzani) definitely reopened at Adria the title fight with one round only to be held. The gap from the leader Mirko Bortolotti (Lucidi Motors) is now down to just 8 points, with 24 still to be assigned on the 19th of October at Vallelunga.

The protagonists comment follows:

Piercarlo Ghinzani (Team Ghinzani, Team Owner):

"Both the Team and Piscopo worked in an almost perfect way, harvesting the highest possible number of points and keeping open the title fight. To accomplish this task we will have to do the same at Vallelunga, it won't be easy but we have what it takes to do it."

Gabriele Lucidi (Lucidi Motors, Team Manager):

"We expected some difficulties on this track. In the tests of Adria temperatures have always been higher than those of this weekend but some electrical problems in free practice did not allow us to do all the setup work that we scheduled. With two second places Bortolotti still kept the leadership and we are going to defend the classification advantage in the final stage at Vallelunga. Castellacci got closer to the third place thanks to the six points scored, while Nava lived an unfortunate weekend."
