A difficult weekend on the Imola circuit

A difficult weekend the one that just ended on the Imola circuit, made even more complicated by the time handicap after the victory obtained at Mugello.
The drivers of the Audi Sport Italia team, after the qualifying session, started from sixth position.
The first to take to the track for the 3h race was Vito Postiglione, a rookie driver of the R8 LMS but already GT champion in 2013. After a short safety car phase at the start of the race, Postiglione managed to gradually move up in the standings taking to the fifth place behind the BMW M6 of Comandini, Zug and Spengler.
At the driver change, Daniel, having discounted the 15″ handicap, returned to the track behind the BWM and also due to the GT3 set-up that did not put the drivers at ease, both in braking and in corner entry, Mancinelli found himself to fight for the seventh and eighth position, trying to contain the gap from the direct opponents in the championship, except the unstoppable Ferrari of Rovera, Roda and Fuoco at the head of the race from the start.
At the second pit stop, Agostini – after serving the second half of the time handicap – returned to the track not too far from the BMW (14″) and five minutes from the checkered flag he managed to conquer the seventh position at the expense of the fastest Porsche competing in Imola.
“I’m a bit sorry for the seventh final position.” – Daniel said – “The whole Audi Sport Italia team, my teammates and I did our best. I’m happy anyway because we are second in the championship just 3 points behind Rovera / Roda / Fuoco that in the next appointment on the Vallelunga circuit among three weeks will have to serve the 30″ handicap time.”
