Triumph for Kessel Racing on the Sunday in Monza.
After a Saturday, which could be called “difficult”, the second race in the International Open GT Championship, held in the afternoon, eventually brought great satisfaction to the Kessel Racing team. At the end of the 50-minute race – the second race in the seventh round of the season - Dalle Stelle/Zampieri, with their Ferrari 458 GT3, gained the win in their class ahead of the Mercedes with De Lorenzi/Garofano and the Porsche driven by Hamilton/Mapelli. A positive performance was also delivered by the other two 458 GT3s with Earle/Kremer, fifth in their class, and Alexander/Calari, sixth amongst the GTS cars. Meanwhile Mantovani/Ramos had an unlucky race and collided in the early stage with the car driven by Cordoni/Bontempelli, while the black Ferrari with Gattuso/Zanuttini, after an amazing start, had to retire due to a technical problem, while it was leading the cars in the GTS class. In the SGT category the race of Broniszewski/Peter ended one lap before the end in the sand at the famous “Parabolica” corner after a collision with the Porsche 997 driven by Tandy/Holzer. Despite the yellow Ferrari 458 GT2 had come off the track, the car classified in eighth position. At the end of the weekend in Monza Zampieri/Dalle Stelle are leading in the GTS category with 76 points, ahead of Bizzarri (AF Corse) with 71 points and Hamilton/Mapelli (Porsche Autorlando) with 70 points. These drivers will now fight for the title in the last and decisive race on the calendar near Barcelona at the end of October. In the Drivers’ Standings Mantovani and Cecchellero from Kessel Racing are in eighth position (20 points) and Zanuttini/Gattuso in 15 th position (10 points), followed by Kremer/Earle and Alexander/Calari. In the SGT, Broniszewski/Peter are in seventh position with 35 points.
