In the S2 class Steve Bonnal wins the overall classification despite two starts not at the top, but consolidating his red plate as championship leader.
In race 1 Bonnal did not start at his best and became the author of a steady comeback that would allow him to recover from sixth position, up to grabbing the lead on the seventh lap, coming under the checkered flag in front of everyone.
In race 2 Steve starts well, but a contact at the first corner still forces him to a race all in recovery mode, from the middle of the stage Bonnal changes his pace again and with a solid progression, he will reach third place close to second.
Kevin Vandi, Alessandro Sanchioni, Lorenzo Papalini and Giovanni Maria Galloni represent the colors of the L30 Racing Team in the class dedicated to asphalt specialists.

Good job for Papalini: after a good start in seventh position and a good race pace, will have to give up some positions on the final finishing ninth.
Galloni starts discreetly in his second race and collects a good eleventh place in his class.
In race 2 Kevin Vandi wants to redeem himself, he is the most reactive at the start, but Sanchioni is immediately behind him. On the seventh lap Sanchioni, after a conservative race, unleashes the decisive attack by reaching the top and winning his first race of 2021, confirming his excellent condition.
Vandi will also have to give up second position and with some recriminations he will be third, capitalizing the day.
Papalini starts fourteenth, but lap after lap he will be able to move into the top ten, reaching tenth and conquering another eighth place overall.
Galloni with the good performance in race 1 and the result of this second heat, will be able to get the ninth place overall.
IVAN LAZZARINI: “Second round of Internazionali d’Italia, we are still satisfied with the results, the S1 class lived again on the duel between Thomas and Marc, undisputed protagonists of the premier class, we had fun and they won each other; Diego Monticelli also did very well, despite the crash, he showed a good pace and we find him in fourth place in the International classification, while he is in second place in the Italian one.
In S2 another win for Steve Bonnal, who was the author of a full comeback race 1 and a race 2 with a few mistakes, which deprived him of the success of the heat 2.
Even in the S4 class we got some great satisfactions, with Sanchioni’s first victory of 2021 and the second place of the day; well third place for Kevin Vandi, who lost a few points from the leader, but we are still fighting with both for the title in S4, the Championship is still long and with them we will make up for the next race “
