Thomas Biagi is the Italian Superstars 2010 Champion
Thomas Biagi is the Italian Superstars 2010 Champion. To win the title, the Italian driver for BMW Team Italy had to obtain at Vallelunga a third and fifth place in the last round of the tri-colour Series, valid also for the International Series.
Remarkable are the figures of Biagi's season, the Italian driver has been author of a pole position, three victories, two second places, a third and five fastest lap of the race.
The final classification of the championship crowns Biagi champion with 178 points, followed by Pigoli (Mercedes) with 147 and Ferrara (Mercedes) with 134.
In the International Series, Biagi strenghtens his leadership instead and reaches 147 points, followed by Ferrara at 106 and Pigoli at 97.
Roberto Ravaglia (ROAL Motorsport, Team Principal):
"The victory of the Italian title is one of the two objectives we set at the beginning of the year and also in the International Series the classification is quite favourable to us. With just a round still to be run, we are therefore close to finish the season with the highest possible result".
Umberto Grano (BMW Italy, Sportive Activities Manager):
"We can be extremely satisfied: BMW Italy believed in the growth of the Superstars Series and the spectators' success at Vallelunga awards the work done in the past months by the organizers. From a sportive profile, Thomas Biagi's victory of the Italian title and his consistant leadership in the International Series highlight the value of ROAL Motorsport that managed to develop a winning car since the beginning".
"Winning the Italian title in my debut year in Superstars and at the wheel of a car very different from GT1 and LMP2 that I drove in the last few seasons is a dream. The setting offered by fans today was simply great, spectators of the greatest occasions on grand stands and my fans club did the rest.
BMW Team Italy have done a great job since winter tests and the merit of today's success has to be shared among all members of the team. A key role was certainly played by Roberto Ravaglia, whom I always admired as a driver and he is certainly not any worse as a team principal. Our focus is on the final round at Kyalami scheduled for next 28 November which will nominate the International champion, but now we want to enjoy this title at least for one day".
