Donington - GBR

Solid showings for Herbert and Cesari in the Quattroporte Evo

Johnny Herbert put on another fine display in the Swiss Team Maserati Quattroporte Evo in Race 2.
20/05/2012

Competing in the third round of the International Superstars Series, at Donington, the ex-F1 driver’s race was far from straightforward but, in the end, he came through to finish seventh. Just two places further back was Swiss Team’s other representative, Mauro Cesari, who had also put on a fighting performance.


After securing a brilliant third spot in Race 1, for Race 2 Herbert was further down the grid (as the top eight positions are inverted for the second race). He was also nudged into a spin by Tom Onslow-Cole’s Jaguar XF/R5.0 S/C and dropped to the back of the field, a position from which he launched his comeback.

The private battle between Herbert and ex-champion Thomas Biagi, and his Dinamic BMW E92, was an engaging one. The duel lasted right up to the line with Biagi just edging it.
