The opening of the second round of the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia at Mugello Circuit is entirely by Alessandro Giardelli. The very young driver from Colico takes the stage of the day after being the fastest in free practice on Friday in 1’50 “342. It is a rather interesting result when compared to the 50” 5 of the free practices a year ago (author Gianmarco Quaresmini).
The DInamic Motorsport driver, who used new tires and set the record fifteen minutes from the end of the session, remained beyond the 50 mark, with a warmer and very different track compared to yesterday’s tests, when that The wall has been knocked down several times, and 3 tenths of a second from his time stopped Alberto Cerqui, who appeared particularly at ease with the 911 GT3 Cup of the Q8 Hi Perform team, as already shown on Thursday.
Cerqui preceded the other Dinamic Motorsport rookie, Giorgio Amati, who stopped the clock 6 tenths from Giardelli and set the third time of the day ahead of Aldo Festante, fourth in the first of Ombra Racing’s 911 GT3 Cups.
A little more detached, all under the second anyway, the Brianza of Ghinzani Arco Motorsport Daniele Cazzaniga, who appeared more on the ball than in the test, Stefano Gattuso with the second car by Ombra and Gianmarco Quaresmini, only seventh after encountering traffic in the simulation qualification at the end of the shift.
Shortly before, a full course yellow lasting a few minutes, due to an off-piste by Donzelli with a touch to the rear, had affected the final, partially interrupting the work of the teams, which was resumed only a couple of minutes before the checkered flag.
With the eighth time, Enrico Fulgenzi concluded his return. Even the EF Racing rider was unable to make the most of the best tires, in any case preceding the Lithuanian Dziugas Tovilavicious (third Shadow bishop in top-10) and Marzio Moretti, tenth for Bonaldi Motorsport at the end of a session for him with only 11 laps completed.
In the Michelin Cup, Marco Cassarà dominated the session for a long time, in fact always remaining in the lead. The bronze Raptor Engineering driver was the fastest in the category in 1’52 “745 but in the last part of the free practice the current leader Alex De Giacomi, returning from a difficult day of testing yesterday, managed to get in the wake of his rival, finishing fourth in class but just two tenths, the same gap accused by Ray Calvin (second for EF Racing) and Piero Randazzo, who started the weekend with the third fastest time for AB Racing.
In the Silver Cup Max Montagnese is immediately ahead of everyone with the 991 GT3 Cup gen.I of Team Malucelli despite having missed yesterday’s tests, compared to which today the air temperature was slightly higher (28-29 degrees) but above all it is that of the asphalt that has risen a lot, remaining above 51 degrees for the entire session.
Tomorrow (Saturday) it will be time for the real battle against the stopwatch: pole hunt scheduled from 11.35 to 12.20 and race 1 at 17.20 with live TV on Sky Sport Action (Sky channel 206) and streaming always in HD on www.carreracupitalia.it.
