Andrea Bertolini

Bertolini doubles up and enters the title race

The ending was happier than anyone could have expected. In the fourth round of the International Superstars Series, Andrea Bertolini and his Maserati Quattroporte Evo, prepared by private squad Swiss Team, was hoping for a win and a good placing.

Against all predictions, Maserati's official driver dominated Race 2 from start to finish despite having a 30 kg weight handicap. The win came on the back of his earlier triumph in Race 1. Bertolini's new team mate, Alessandro Pier Guidi, made the day even sweeter with a third-placed finish to improve on his sixth spot in the first event.

Setting the fastest lap time in Race 2 gave Bertolini a total haul for the weekend of 41 points, moving him into second place overall. Four points ahead of him is new leader Luigi Ferrara, in the Caal Racing Mercedes Amg C63 with the previous leader Thomas Biagi now third in the BMW M3 E92 from BMW Italia.
