Double Wins In Donington For IMSA And Kessel

The GT Open race of the Donington GT Open ended with the same winners as yesterday. Patrick Pilet-Raymond Narac confirmed with a double win the excellent form of the IMSA Performance Porsche. With this third win, the French pair now join the fight for the title, together with Fassler-Camathias (Trottet Ferrari), today 2nd, and Lietz-Roda (Autorlando Porsche), today 3rd.

In GTS, it was yet another win for Kessel's Racing Philipp Peter and Michal Broniszewski, although clinched in the last lap from the Villois Aston of Guerrero- Petrini, with the other Aston third.

At the start, Pilet is fastest while poleman Lietz loses also the initial duel with Fassler. Follow Belloc, Couceiro, Rugolo, Griffin, Frezza, Bonetti and Guerrero, who leads in the GTS category with the Villois Aston, while Caccia spins soon after.

Positions will remain pretty much unchanged until the driver change, with Pilet managing to build an advantage that allowed Narac to be still first when everybody has pitted, ahead of Camathias, Roda, David, Perazzini, Bamford, Monfardini and Ricci. The last two will have a contact in lap 22, with Monfardini being forced to retire.

Except Perazzini gaining one position and Giao coming up to fourth, there won't be many changes in positions and gaps, the IMSA Performance squad claiming easily its second success.

In GTS, the Villois Aston of Guerrero-Petrini will manage to keep its initial lead until the last lap, when Philipp Peter manages to overtake Petrini to get another win, with the other Aston finishing third and the Corvette of Julià-Alexander (running on 7 cylinders) fourth. The Apex Jaguar did not take the start, following yesterday's gearbox failure.
