Great weekend at Adria for Autorlando-Sport and Maurizio Fondi, with 997 GT3 R, engaged in the second round of the Italian Gran Turismo Cup.
Very uncertain weather that has faced Maurizio Fondi this weekend,
On Saturday afternoon for qualifying a drizzle had made slippery the asphalt of Adria, but no problem, since the second place on the grid.
Race 1: always at night to Saturday but on a dry track, and 20 minutes of great competition between Fondi and Valli, with continuous attacks of the Tuscan, unfortunately always closed by the BMW driver, to the finish, with a few tenths and then with a stunning second place.
Race 2: Sunday afternoon in the rain, and this is where Fondi has launched the attack on the seventh lap, passing in command, to enjoy the first position, under the checkered flag.
Next round will be in Misano Adriatico next 8-10 of May.
