Ferrari Challenge Europe - Saturday

The European series of the Ferrari Challenge, with all competitors driving the 458 Evo, started with some really exciting races. Race 1 of the Trofeo Pirelli was won by the Italian Stefano Gai, driving for the Rossocorsa team. The Italian driver has been able to set a stunning Grand Slam having scored pole position, fastest lap and winning the race leading from the start to the finish. The winner took the checkered flag ahead of the Austrian Philipp Baron (team Octane 126). In a solitary third place was Dario Caso (Rossocorsa-Pellin Racing). Good fourth Di Amato, able to recover after a bad start.

There was another close fight in the Pirelli Am category, won by Giacomo Stratta, who did a great job in the Forza Service 458 Evo, to finish 5th overall. Second in the category was the baby Argentinian (just 20 years old) Ezequiel Perez Companc (Motor Piacenza) who had a hard fought battle to beat Slovakian Tomas Kukucka (Scuderia Prah-Dino&Co).

Excitement, spectacle and thrills also in the first Coppa Shell and Coppa Gentlemen race of the season. Dominating the first round was Dirk Adamski at the wheel of the Saggio Racing Team 458 Evo. Second place went to Italian Massimiliano Bianchi (Kessel Racing) that crossed the line just 0"359 behind the leader.

Third place went to Belgian Jacques Duyver (Stratstone Ferrari) who finished with a delay just under three seconds. Poleman’s race Erich Prinoth was ruined at the start when the Italian lost first place to Adamski and went off the track at the Roggia chicane.

As for the Coppa Gentlemen, for drivers over 55, victory went to the Canadian driver Rick Lovat (fourth overall) in the Kessel Racing entered car, beating Dutch team mate Fons Scheltema (fifth) and the Italian Thomas Gostner.

The disappointed and defeated won’t have to wait long to try again as the second race of Trofeo Pirelli takes place tomorrow at 14h05 while the Coppa Shell one gets underway at 16h20.
