Sbirrazzuoli and Ardagna triumph at Donington


Cedric Sbirrazzuoli and Gaetano Ardagna came out on top in the two round five Trofeo Maserati GranTurismo MC races. This weekend the action took place at Donington Park, England. For the Monaco driver, Race 1 was a lone experience that began in Saturday's qualifying where he took a fine pole. Sbirrazzuoli, from Team AF Corse, led from start to finish, first keeping his rivals in check and then slowly turning the screw to finish 19 seconds up on David Baldi. Things were exciting right from the start behind the AF Corse driver. Ardagna, Baldi, Piancastelli and Bakker were especially spectacular in their fight for the two remaining podium slots.

 

The turning point came when Piancastelli and Ardagna clashed, forcing the Venezuelan into the pits. Baldi and Bakker made the most of it to finish behind the eventual winner; a result that meant that Baldi triumphed in the Trofeo category. Nicolò Piancastelli, fourth overall and third in the Trofeo category, was later hit with a post-race penalty by officials of 25 seconds and a 6 place relegation on the Race 2 starting grid for his collision with Ardagna. With the rain coming down and with debris scattered across the track, the race was suspended with a few minutes to spare. As 75% of the race time had been run, a full points quota was awarded.
