MC12 on the podium also in race 2

Andrea Bertolini and Michael Bartels picked up two precious third places from the tricky transfer to Bucharest. The finishes mean that they keep hold of top spot in the championship. The two Bucharest races were an unknown and had all the unexpected hazards typical of city races.

Even though they had to cope with a weighty load, Bertolini and Bartels were able to keep the car’s mechanics in good working order, meaning that the tyres and brakes worked well throughout. Alexander Negraõ and Miguel Ramos, in the other Vitaphone car, also left Bucharest with reputations enhanced. Ramos drove brilliantly and took his MC12 to second spot in race 2 despite transmission problems.

The MC12 proved that it could handle the pace and was reliable even on a track like Bucharest were the car’s mechanics are given a thorough going over.
