A great Ferrari spectacle at Vallelunga

Maranello, -- After the first round held in the breathtaking environment of Misano by night, the Italian Gran Turismo Championship now moved to the Piero Taruffi circuit in Vallelunga.

The first race for the GT Cup ended in a photo-finish with the first three cars all within just over a second: the F430 of Mapelli-Mancini (Vittoria Competizioni) and the female crew of Cerruti-Linossi (AeffeM) took second and third places on the podium, behind the Porsche 997 of the GDL Racing team, crewed by Castellaneta-Formilli Fendi. In the GT2 class, first place went to the AF Corse Ferrari of Aguas-Garofano, ahead of the F430 of Broniszewki-Peter (Kessel Racing) and Mugelli-Palma (Vittoria Competizioni.)

After two closely fought races on Saturday, the second day was also dominated by Ferrari. In Race 2 of the GT2, the podium in the main class was all red, the highest step going to Moncini-Montermini (Villorba Corse) ahead of Mugelli-Palma and Aguas-Garofano. In the GT Cup race, the Maranello Rossa of Bocellari-Goldstein (Kessel Racing) won ahead of the Porsche 997 of Fratti-Caffi (Autorlando) followed very closely by Mapelli-Mancini.

The overall classification sees Moncini and Montermini (Villorba Corse) already leading after the Misano win, still heading GT2 on 50 points. Mapelli and Mancini (Vittoria Competizioni) are comfortable leaders in the GT Cup on 52.

The Italian Gran Turismo championship will be back in action at the Umbrian Magione circuit over the weekend of 6 June.
