Virtual Endurance Championship 6 hours of Suzuka - Clean performances
Division 1 #83 - Qualifying top, Race almost good
The title could be the short summary of this crew's race (quoting Alessandro Appolloni).
Great night for the #83, starting from 4th place thanks to Francesco Morante's flying lap in qualifying.
The start was a bit worse, as we lost a couple of positions, but remained in the battle for the top 5. Davide Arduini jumped onboard for the second hour and unfortunately spent about half of the stint battling with a slower, but impossible to pass Corvette, losing precious seconds. Arduini kept the pace for two more stints and then left the car to Morante, who managed to gain 2 positions in the final hour sprint and secured the 6th place.
Good result that could have been even better with more luck.
Division 1 #252 - Comeback masters
For the #252 it was a comeback race right from the start. Started from P12, after serving the penalties went down to the bottom of the GTE group and slowly had to get back to the 14th final position thanks to clean driving by Lorenzo De Ciutiis and Marco Slanzi.
Now head to Belgium, where will be held the next and penultimate round that's the 8 hours of Spa-Francorchamps!
