Alberto Cerqui explodes with joy after the triumph in the sprint with overtaking at the last corner on Gianmarco Quaresmini this afternoon. The Q8 Hi Perform works driver, whose 911 GT3 Cup is technically followed by Ghinzani Arco Motorsport, won race 1 of the second round of the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia after having instead lost the battle for pole in the morning.
For a flaw that had cost him a couple of tenths, now fully rewarded by this fundamental success in terms of the championship, where Cerqui returns to stretch right on his fellow citizen and standard bearer of Tsunami RT, who had closed every hole in the race.
The 2013 runner-up of the Italian flagship store found that hole against one another at Bucine for the last time. A victory won in that instant with the following sprint, but built with a lot of patience and above all great fairness, without ever going beyond what is allowed despite repeated attacks and closures. And always taking care also of an Ale Giardelli, third in the wake of the two Brescians, increasingly present on the podium.
“At a certain point I didn’t believe it anymore – he said Looking for after the finish –; I knew I had a little more, but Gianmarco has always protected the trajectory, despite having tried several times. Then he went a little wide at the last corner. There was room for my car and I got in. It was one of the best races of my life! This year I’m giving a thousand percent, we started off on the right foot and this is already the second victory in the championship. I am also very happy for the team, with Q8 Hi Perform and Ghinznai Arco we immediately reached the right feeling. “
