Smurra, the champion back in the running

20/06/2010 - Zolder
The last time we saw him this happy when climbing out of a Maserati was during the first ever Trofeo season.

Emanuele Smurra is back and his smile shows just how satisfied he is to be competing at his true level. He didn't win but the Roman is taking things a step at a time this year. Setting the fastest lap time in Race 2 and just missing out on a virtual fourth place will have pleased him no end.

"The race went really well" began Smurra. "Things went great from the start when I overtook two other drivers. Then I started lapping consistently fast and even posted the race's fastest lap. I really like the car and it is thrilling when you step on the gas, even though the tyres began wearing out".

This happened towards the end of the race, a phase in which the Roman went head-to-head with Paolo Necchi.

"The battle with Necchi was exciting and we overtook each other a couple of times. However, I exceeded the limit a little and so felt obliged to immediately give way". A place on the podium can wait until Brands Hatch.
