Press release 17/2019 18.06.2019
Fifth seasonal appointment for the Peroni Group championship, the Novecento GT Race Cup, which will take place this weekend at the Monza circuit, for the occasion combined with the Austrian P9 Challenge championship, whose competitors will still be transparent for the standings. After the goods results in Franciacorta circuit with the two podiums, Adriano Visdomini is back with the usual Porsche 997 GT3 CUP eager to do well on the long straights and curves that made the history of motoring on this circuit dated 1922 and universally recognized as the fastest in Europe.
Free practice on Friday, two 25-minute sessions, the first of which actually had no interest due to a red flag after a few minutes which prevented it from resuming. Adriano closes the second session in seventh place overall and 1st in the GT C class, half satisfied due to lost time.
Saturday dedicated exclusively to qualifications in which Visdomini takes full advantage of the car’s potential and the new set of tires by hitting a great 1’56 “9 that places it 5th overall and 1st in class, in a crescendo of fast laps that lead him to a few tenths from the Porsche 991, more recent and certainly more advanced than his. Congratulations and we underline that on the starting grid it will be in the fourth row due to the presence of the P9 Challenge group.
Race at lunch time on Sunday, sun and heat, everything is ready, driver and car ready to do well but the unexpected is always around the corner even before the first variant, notoriously difficult in Monza. Visdomini started well but was literally sent to the wall by an opponent of the P9 Challenge, no physical damage but a very damaged car. A lot of anger in the body for Adriano, who comes away without guilt and with the worst damage.
For Autorlando-sport it is already time to think about the next appointment with the return of the Sprint series of the Italian GT Championship this weekend at Imola and at the 9th Historic Rally Lana with Porsche 911 sc gr.4.
