Liberati-Nemoto are crowned champions in Monza in the Italian GT Endurance Championship

The Italian-Japanese duo won the race and the overall title by taking advantage of the technical problem of the teammates of the VSR team and direct rivals Hites-Michelotto-Basz. Giacomo Pollini, on the other hand, triumphs in the Italian Sport Prototypes Championship in front of a good audience.

6 championships, 11 races, over 200 drivers on the track and two absolute titles awarded. With these numbers ended the ACI Racing Weekend 2 at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, during which the fate of the Italian GT Endurance Championship and the Italian Sport Prototype Championship were written. Another two-sided weekend, at least in terms of weather, for the Temple of Speed, with a sunny Saturday and a Sunday conditioned by bad weather that slowed down the racing program.

Edoardo Liberati and Yuki Nemoto in Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo won the 2022 Italian Gran Turismo Endurance Championship . The two VSR team drivers, who arrived at the Brianza circuit with only one point of advantage over teammates Benjamin Hites, Mattia Michelotto and Karol Basz, had to sweat until the last minutes both the triumph in the Monza race and the conquest of the title . The race was in fact very tight at least until Basz was forced to park his car on the side of the track due to a mechanical problem, just at the moment when he was closely following the Lambo direct competitor for the title, driven at that moment. by Nemoto. And it was the Japanese driver who was the real MVP of the race, also compensating for Liberati’s back problems and recovering all the positions that the Roman driver had lost in the first third of the race (despite starting from pole), when due to physical limits he it was overtaken by several cars. Nemoto was able to recover to the sound of fast laps and finished the race, made exciting also by the repeated safety cars that reunited the group several times, in front of the trio made up of Jacopo Guidetti, Jorge Cabezas and Leonardo Moncini (Nova Race ) on Honda NSX and another Lamborghini Huracan driven by Raul Guzman, Mateo Llarena and Daan Pijl (Imperiale Racing).

The Italian Sport Prototype Championship was also decided in Monza. Giacomo Pollini (ASD Pollini Race) arrived as a great favorite, at least looking at the mere classification, for the 36 points advantage over Davide Uboldi (Uboldi Corse) and respected the predictions. The driver from Brescia did not even have to wait until Sunday to secure the result, thanks to the second place in race-1 and the eighth place of the only competitor for the fight in the general classification. The victory on Saturday went to poleman Matteo Roccadelli (G-Force Racing), good at resisting throughout the race in Pollini, while Alessio Salvaggio ( Bad Wolves). On Sunday we run in the wet and Pollini proves to be a magician even in critical track conditions, recovering in a very short time from seventh to first place and triumphing undisputed over Uboldi, second and Roccadelli, solid third at the finish.

Lodovico Laurini beat all competitors in the first of two races of the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia . Starting from fourth place, the Dinamic Motorsport driver demonstrated his feeling with the very fast track in Brianza and in a few minutes overtook poleman Leonardo Caglioni (Ombra Racing), Benedetto Strignano (Scuderia Villorba Corse) and the leader of the overall classification Gianmarco Quaresmini , also from Ombra Racing. Strignano and Quaresmini were placed behind Laurini, now one step away from the title. In the Sunday appointment Laurini confirmed himself on the podium, finishing third behind Diego Bertonelli (BeDriver) and the South African Keagan Masters (AB Racing), winner of race-2. Not an unforgettable weekend for Jorge Lorenzo (Q8 Hi Perform), who finished both races in the back after a good qualifying on Saturday ended just two tenths from the poleman.

The 44 single-seaters lined up on the starting grid of the Italian F4 Championship also took care of the spectators to enjoy overtaking and duels, including those between teammates. The team Prema Racing was on the shields over the weekend, taking victory in both races of 30 minutes plus one lap between Saturday and Sunday. In fact, in race-1 the Austrian Charlie Wurz triumphed in front of Alexander Dunne and Kacper Sztuka, team mates of US Racing, while in race-2, which was run on Sunday afternoon and also characterized by several doors, Andrea won. Kimi Antonelli, who with these 25 points stretched to first place in the general classification, ahead of Wurz and Martinus Stenshorne (Van Amersfoort Racing). The third race, scheduled for Sunday morning, was instead canceled due to the rain which made the track impracticable for almost two hours.

In race-1 of the Clio Cup Series , a competition of only Renault Clio Cup, the top three finishers seem to be doing a different job than the rest of the grid. David Pouget (GPA Racing), Anthony Jurado (Milan Competition) and Felice Jelmini (PMA Motorsport) take off from the first corners and fight for all 25 minutes plus one lap of the race. In the end, Jelmini wins, while Jurado and Pouget have to settle for second and third place respectively. In race-2, held on Sunday afternoon, Pouget made a brilliant comeback, seeing the checkered flag waving as a first-place winner in front of the two Milan Competition teammates Nicolas Milan and Marc Guillot, practically paired on the finish line, with Milan leading the way. Guillot by a few centimeters.

Paolo Maria Silvestrini is the star of both 25-minute races plus one lap of the MINI Challenge . The leader of the overall standings of the Motorsport team, who arrived on the Brianza track with a 29-point advantage over Ugo Federico Bagnasco (M.Car by AC Racing Technology), starts from pole and sows his rivals both in the dry on Saturday and in the wet on Sunday. , imposing an unsustainable pace for all competitors. In race-1, just Bagnasco closes behind him, more than 5 seconds behind him, while Andrea Palazzo (Fimauto by AC Racing Technology) finishes third. These last two drivers reverse their positions on the podium in the second competition, also staging a fun and extremely correct duel until the last corner.

Motorsport fans won’t have to wait long to see another race at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. Already at the end of October, Saturday 29 and Sunday 30, the Temple of Speed will become the home of the Formula X Italian Series , with the last round of the Formula X Racing Weekend and various series on the track in the prestigious Temple of Speed.
