Herpell first in free practiceThe first day of practice in the fourth round of the Maserati Trofeo was the perfect taster for the action to come. Things were well balanced in the fight to see who edges the 'European' series in the single-make championship.
Thomas Herpell took a few by surprise with his 2'15"267, a lap on which he slightly cut a corner. The German headed the Fascicolo/Sernagiotto duo and Riccardo Romagnoli; Sernagiotto's time was set on the very last lap of the 45-minute session.
Taking fourth in the Team series were Sbirrazzuoli/Chionna (AF Corse) as they bettered Renaud Kuppens (Konvex Racing) and Ange Barde, making his Trofeo debut. Th ex-European Ferrari Challenge champion made the most of free practice to get to know the car. The hard work paid off as his times improved the longer the workout went on.
In seventh and eighth are two other crews going for the title: Ragazzi/Simoni and Dromedari/Pigoli (Swiss Team). Behind them is the Venier/Gardelli duo and Stefano Garelli.
