Misano - ITA

Bertolini just misses out on second

Andrea Bertolini suffered cruel luck at Misano during round five of the International Superstars Series.
10/07/2011

The Maserati Quattroporte Evo driver from Swiss Team seemed to have secured second place in Race 2 when he was rammed by another driver. The clash sent him spinning down the field and he eventually finished in thirteenth place. Bertolini’s bad luck also cost him championship points and he now sits in third.

Alessandro Pier Guidi, Bertolini’s team mate, did well to finish in sixth. The place was hard-earned after a problem with his brakes saw him tumble to the back of the pack.
The race was an exciting one. Cerqui’s BMW M3 E92 moved into an early lead. He was followed by Rangoni (Mercedes C63 AMG), Ferrara (Mercedes C63 AMG), Pigoli (Mercedes C63 AMG) , Biagi (BMW M3 E92) and Bertolini. Rangoni then managed to edge in front while Ferrara and Pigoli’s private scrap saw them get in each other’s way and lose a few places. Also coming off badly was Biagi, who paid the price for getting too close to the action.

Bertolini’s car was a shade more competitive after shedding 30 of the 75kg handicap at the end of Race 1. He managed to steer clear of the chaos and cruise into third place, with Herbert’s Mercedes C63 AMG close behind.
