Post Race 1 press conference

23/06/2012 - Imola
Luca Lorenzini (1st Overall. VIP guest):

"I am speechless: I was up against drivers with international experience and I won! Yesterday I tried to get to know the car and I set the second best time. I struggled a bit in the race but then settled into a rhythm and stuck to the leaders. I made the most of a few clashes to close the gap even more and then move into the lead. Luck was on my side but I think I did well too".

Cedric Sbirrazzuoli (1st Overall, 1st Team):

"It was a much tighter race than the one at Portimao. I think our performances were conditioned by the high temperatures that have been around since Friday's free practice. I started on pole and tried to pull away but couldn't because we were all lapping at more or less the same pace. I had a close battle with Simoni and we both ended up in the gravel. I held onto my spot but Simoni spun and couldn't continue. That was when I retook top spot. I slowed down for a lapped driver towards the end and because the yellow flag was out. It was then that Lorenzini went past me so it will be for the judges to sort out"
.

Stefano Garelli (3rd Overall, 1st Trofeo):

"The last time I raced at Imola was in 1986; since then I have never been back. Back then racing was very different and so was Imola. Even so, I am pleased and the adrenalin buzz takes away the tiredness and the crazy heat. It is an incredible feeling, especially as this is my home race: I only live a few miles away".
