Luca PIRRI – nr 18 Martini Callaway Racing Corvette Z06R GT3, 2nd, 1st Corvette: “I had quite exciting first laps. The car went better and better, I was on a good rhythm, then, like everybody, we changed driver as soon as the pits opened. Without the Safety Car, I think that I could have caught a few other positions. We are happy with this result, as this car is brand new, we did not have time to do a shakedown, so we had no reference on the reliability of our Corvette. But the car is perfect, the Martini Callaway Racing team did a great job, and Jürgen made the difference on the second part.”

Callaway/ Martini Racing stays in top 10 for FIA GT3 Second Race in Bucharest

showimg.php.jpg


Seven different makes in the TOP 10
Behind the winning Ferrari and the nr 43 Matech racing Ford GT, six other different makes finished in the top 10. After a long first stint, Nicolas Navarro and Maxime Dubrulle, in the nr 10 First Racing Lamborghini Gallardo, finished in 4th position, and first of the Lamborghinis. Those two young French drivers were really pleased and motivated by this result. In 5th position, Alex Mortimer and paraplegic driver Gilles Duqueine finished first of the Dodges, just in front of the nr 18 Martini Callaway Racing Corvette Z06 GT3 of Luca Pirri and Jurgen Von Gartzen.
First of the Aston Martins, Diego Alessi and Alex Frassinetti were 7th, and the first Porsche, the nr 4 Trackspeed Racing, was 8th overall. This mixed result proves that even on this particular street track, all the GT3 cars are really close to each others.
This was a very difficult day for Ascari today, and several cars were unfortunately badly damaged. Richard Stanton and Ed Morris finished in 14th position despite everything.
And for its first ever race, the nr 49 AutoGT Morgan Aero 8 GT3 was classified in 29th position, whereas the nr 50 retired at the beginning of the race
