Alessandro Pier Guidi (1st overall): “It seems incredible but every time I get into a Maserati GranTurismo MC I win. Maybe it is my good luck charm. It would be nice if things always turned out like this…”
Davide Durante (6th overall – 1st Team): “The weekend didn’t get off to the best of starts but it ended well."
Andreas Segler: "I had a lot of fun in this session. I improved on yesterday's time even though this is a technically difficult circuit, especially through the first chicane. Vallelunga is a track that I enjoy; it is a tough one."
Emanuele Smurra: "It was an unusual qualifying session. I had planned to make a pit stop on lap three to check the tyres but I found myself sandwiched between Pier Guidi and Bertolini and I tried to stay with them."
It will be an interesting end to the Trofeo Maserati season. The last two rounds in the series will be run at the same time as the Italian GT Championship, meaning much longer races.
Alesandro Pier Guidi (1st overall): "I have to admit that this feels like my lucky car: every time I drive it I win. I hope this run continues."
Cedric Sbirrazzuoli (3rd overall - 1st Team): "If my maths are right, we have made sure of the Team title. I am over the moon especially as it means that my team mate, Alessandro Chionna, can be relaxed going into tomorrow's race."
Last Sunday the Formula 1 Grand Prix was held at Monza. As happens every year, a series of events took place before the race at Italy's most famous circuit.
Guether Forster: "I started my career in the Trofeo Maserati, racing at Imola and at Spa, so Vallelunga is my third time out. It was a bit hotter in session two but I am used to the heat as I live in Asia. This is a really testing circuit and, technically, a difficult one."
