Stefano Gai (first classified): “I got off to a good start in the second race and tried build a lead that I could then hold onto. Unfortunately, I started having problems with the gearbox when I had a 12 second gap and could not find third or fifth gear. Sicart, who was sitting in second, made the most of it and overtook me. Then the gearbox started working again and I managed to pick up my pace and I moved into first spot again. The GranTurismo MC Trofeo is fun to drive and well balanced, just like the championship itself."
Jonathan Sicart (second classified): “I think that I drove better in the second race. I felt more at home in the car prepared by the mechanics. It was a tight duel with Gai for first place; we battled it out and there was a lot of overtaking going on. I would like to thank Maserati for putting on this weekend”.
Ronnie Kessel (third classified): “There are two things I would like to make clear: this was my first time in a car without ABS so I had to learn to ‘drive’ again as I have only taken part in Ferrari Challenge up until now. It has also been a year since I have competed, for reasons that everyone knows. My father passed away a week ago, last Saturday, and I wanted to thank him in a special way. I felt obliged to take part in this race and do well for him. This is the main reason I came to Monza. I wanted to thank him for everything. I hope I don’t let anyone down and do well for Kessel Racing. As for the car, I would like to thank Maserati for developing the GranTurismo MC Trofeo as it really is well balanced. I am satisfied with how things went in the race”.
