An exciting Sunday with many surprises for Kessel Racing at Imola’s “Enzo e Dino Ferrari” circuit, stage of this season’s second round in the Ferrari Challenge and the International G.T. Sprint Series. In the G.T.Sprint, the series the Italian Lorenzo Bontempelli, behind the wheel of the Ferrari F430 G.T.2, gained two places on the podium – a third and a second place – behind the winner Andrea Palma. In the GTS Cup Bocellari concluded race one with a fourth place, almost on the podium, while his car companion Delli Guanti finished in fifth. The other Ferrari F430 - driven by Petrini/Sorti -crossed the line in the two races in ninth and sixth position respectively. Today wasn’t a lucky day for the team from Grancia in the Ferrari Challenge. In race one, the best result was obtained by Scheltema, who crossed the line fourth and first in the field of the gentlemen drivers. Right behind him Zanuttini came in fifth, while De Bernardi crossed the line 12th and Raffaeli and Künzli had to retire. In race two, three laps before the end, third position for Scheltema ended up in smoke after a collision with another car in the Alta corner. Unfortunately Künzli didn’t cross the line, while the three cars left in the race came home in ninth position with Zanuttini, in in tenth with De Bernardi and in 11th with Raffaeli. The next round of the Ferrari Challenge and the G.T.
Sprint series will be held in Mugello on 3 June.
