Ferrari Challenge Europe – Trofeo Pirelli: “Babalus” does it again, Vezzoni champion

Scarperia, 7 Nov – A spectacular Race-2 of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli saw the awarding of the Pirelli Am title and confirmed the extraordinary run of form of Matteo “Babalus” Santoponte, who may very well be favourite for the world championship on Sunday.

 

Trofeo Pirelli. Bjorn Grossmann won pole and was rewarded for this by the Hublot championship’s official timekeeper with a special watch, but the German Octane 126 driver’s lead lasted two corners. Indeed, the Italian standard bearer for Scuderia Autoropa took no time to move into first before flying to victory. Third place went to Max Blancardi, with the second Octane 126 car.

 

Pirelli Am. In the class where the title was still up for grabs Alessandro Vezzoni held his nerve and kept his lead in the standings, taking advantage of the absence of Sweden’s Martin Nelson. Britain’s Sam Smeeth (Stratstone Ferrari) won the race, while Nicolas Stürzinger (Foitek Racing) came third. The season now only has the world championship race left to run.
