Fifteenth place in Virginia

28/04/2008 - Virginia awards Matteo Bobbi with the first chequered flag in the 2008 Grand Am, whereby he scored the fifteenth position after three retirements in the initial races of the season.

In qualifying, the Italian driver scored the tenth best time (1:45.432), which confirmed the progresses showed two weeks ago in Mexico. Bobbi has been protagonist of the second stint of the race whereby, for the first time this year, he made a driving mistake in which he lost some positions.

Matteo Bobbi:
"The first part of the race has been quite positive for us; my team mate gave the car to me in eight position, but I unfortunately committed a mistake at the exit of turn one that made me drop back to the fifteenth position. I am really disappointed for this but this is something that can happen."
