A really unlucky weekend

The weekend just spent on the Lime Rock circuit in Connecticut was not easy at all.
Daniel and his team-mate were fast during all free practice, but a Schirò track exit during the last few minutes of free practice compromised qualifications, as being scheduled a few minutes after free practice, the team didn’t have the time to restore the car.
Daniel, in Race 1, confirmed once again his excellent qualities. Although he started from the bottom of the grid, in P23, the Italian rider managed to make a striking comeback up to P9, marking the third fastest lap of the race (useful to determine – according to the championship rules – the starting grid of Race 2).
At the mandatory pit stop, team-mate Niccolò managed to keep a good pace but was forced to retire at 6 minutes from the end of the race for a technical problem due to the morning accident.
At the start of Race 2, from the second row, Shirò succeeds in having a good start and in attempting to overtake Porsche in the first place, but a contact between the two cars forces the Porsche against the barriers and the Ferrari 488 GT3 to drilling one tire.
So a further pit stop and a stop and go penalty forced the TR3 Racing team to make a comeback.
At the pilot change, Daniel is in P14, but thanks to an excellent pace he managed to vamp until the absolute P10.
“It was not the weekend I expected.” – Daniel said – “After testing last Tuesday we saw that our Ferrari 488 GT3 had the speed to fight for victory. The TR3 Racing team did a great job repairing the car after the free practice to allow us to be ready for race 1 in just 2 hours. It is a pity not to bring home important points for the championship but there are still many races at the end and we will be 100% again for the next race at Road America on June 24-25, a Sprint series race where I will drive alone.”
