Adria - italy

Bertolini-Bartels lead the championship

Bertolini / Bartels head the championship

Andrea Bertolini-Michael Bartels finished in second place, after dominating the Adria race. This Italian stage was the third appointment in the FIA-GT calendar and the second Italian stage this season.

Even though they dropped almost 30” with a drive-through, the no.1 Maserati stormed back to snatch second from Deletraz / Fassler’s Corvette. This result allows the Vitaphone Racing Team drivers to move into the lead in the Drivers’ standings.

The German outfit’s other pairing of Ramos and Negraõ also battled hard after a lengthy pit stop. They set the race’s fastest lap even with 55kg of ballast for company. Alain Ferté and Ben Aucott’s JMB Racing MC12 were first across the line among the gentlemen drivers.
