Post Race 3 press conference

24/06/2012 - Imola
Renaud Kuppens- Konvex Motorsport (1st Overall - 1st Team): "I tried to give my all right from the start in the afternoon race."

"I stepped on the gas and tried to build an advantage. My only concern was how to deal with the back markers; this morning I missed out on second because of the drivers at the back of the field. Luckily it didn't happen again, 40 minutes in, I relaxed. Thanks to this win I now lead the Overall standings".

Max Pigoli - Swiss Team (2nd Overall - 2nd Team):
"I got off to a good start and moved up from sixth at the start to third by turn one. Romagnoli then bumped into me but he said that someone had nudged him. It was a surprise but I recovered from the spin and was still in the same position. A few laps later I was called in for a drive-through because of a false start. I don't understand the decisions these officials make because I think I followed the rules and didn't overtake anyone before the line".

Andrea Dromedari - Swiss Team (2nd Overall - 2nd Team):
"I didn't finish either race at Portimao. Here at Imola, thanks to my team-mate and friend Pigoli, we secured a second spot. The luck we missed out on in Portugal was on our side here. It was tough but, despite everything, we managed to make it onto the podium. I would like to congratulate Kuppens who was uncatchable in this race".

Alan Simoni (3rd Overall - 1st Trofeo):
"I didn't have the greatest of starts: Kuppens overtook me and I was hit from behind. The whack was pretty violent and I ended up in the gravel. Luckily I managed to get the engine going and found myself in last place, quite a way off the pace. I then started making my way through the field until it was time for the driver change. My team-mate, Ragazzi, clashed with Sernagiotto at Tamburello: I think that our rival's move could have been avoided. As it was, Ragazzi was hit with a stop and go. I think this was the wrong decision".
