Lamborghini World Final: Altoe and Zampieri score Pro poles
Giacomo Altoe will start on pole position for Race 1 of the Lamborghini World Finals in the Super Trofeo Pro class category, while Daniel Zamperi will line up first on the Race 2 grid.
Altoe set a 1m30.834s lap, 0.171s quicker than Clazzio Racing’s Kei Cozzolino. The race takes place at the Vallelunga circuit this afternoon as part of the World Finals weekend.
Richard Muscat was third for Leipert Motorsport ahead of Kikko Galbiati and his teammate Frederik Schandorff. James Pull starts sixth for Bonaldi Motorsport ahead of American Trent Hindman.
In the qualifying for the Super Trofeo Pro-Am category, Edoardo Liberati set the pace with seven minutes of the session remaining. Despite a spirited attempt by P1 Motorsport’s Loris Spinelli – who was quicker in sector one of his final run – he couldn’t overhaul Liberati and finished in second, just 0.043s away of the Italian’s best time of 1m31.321s. Third in Pro-Am for race one was Stefano Colombo ahead of Finland’s Juuso Puhakka.
In the battle for pole position for tomorrow’s second race of the Lamborghini World Finals, Zampieri was quickest in the Super Trofeo Pro class category.
Zampieri’s best time was 1m 31.539s, two tenths faster than Kelvin Snoeks for Bonaldi Motorsport. At the end of the session Snoeks eclipsed Afiq Yazid by just +0.055 seconds to claim his front-row start. Fourth overall was Artur Janosz ahead of Italian Vito Postiglione.
Midway through the qualifying session, a full-course yellow was deployed after Fabian Vettel became beached in a gravel trap. The brother of Formula 1 champion Sebastian had help from the marshals to return to the track, but he drove straight into the pits and didn’t set a time. He starts tomorrow’s race in last place.
Qualifying for tomorrow’s second Super Trofeo Pro-Am class was headed by Dennis Lind. He eclipsed Emanuele Zonzini’s time with less than five minutes of the session remaining. Zonzini had been the pace-setter, but ended up +0.143s off the time of the Target Racing man.
Italian Francesca Linossi was third quickest, 0.584s in arrears of the pole time, with Takeshi Matsumoto in fourth ahead of the VS Racing duo of Andrezeij Lewandowski and Takashi Kasai.
