Double Glory for Luigi Ferrara and Alfa Romeo

 

TCR Italy kicked off at Imola with a double victory of Luigi Ferrara in the V-Action Racing Alfa Romeo Giulietta. The Italian car showed its potential from Qualifying, when Ferrara set the third fastest lap despite missing most of the session after a contact with another car.

However, luck changed and at the start of the first race Nicola Baldan (Hyundai) stalled from the front row and pole sitter Eric Scalvini (Hyundai) took the lead from Ferrara and Marco Pellegrini (Honda). The race was disrupted twice by the safety car, the second time when Pellegrini crashed at the Variante Alta and before it resumed again Scalvini retired with throttle issues. Ferrara inherited the lead for the final lap and Salvatore Tavano (Cupra) took second in his return to racing, beating Enrico Bettera (Audi) in the final sprint. 

Race 2 started behind the safety-car due to a shower and with Giovanni Altoè on pole. It was an intense show on a drying track. Honda drivers Jürgen Schmarl and  Lorenzo Nicoli took turns in the lead until the latter served a drive-through because of an infringement during the safety-car period. Andrea Larini (Cupra) took the lead ahead of José Rodrigues (Honda), Schmarl, Ferrara and Bettera. The Alfa was the fastest and most effective car on track and seven minutes from the end, Ferrara overtook Larini who lost also the second place to Bettera. The race was red-flagged in the last lap due to an accident between Gabriele Volpato (Cupra) and Plamen Kralev Audi).

The TCR Italy will resume at Le Castellet on May 11/12.
