IVAN LAZZARINI: ” Also this weekend in Pomposa is done, in S1 class an infinity of twists and turns with the crashes of Schmidt and Chareyre, with Tom that still maintaining the leadership with the second place obtained in the overall. Monticelli also crashed when he occupied important positions, despite everything we are also satisfied with his third place overall. Luca Bozza is the third rookie of the weekend, with a strong race 1.
In the S4 class Vandi drove strong, getting third place and precious points, Sanchioni was good, getting fourth place, now the championship is short and we will play it until the end.
Papalini and Galloni recorded excellent times and further improved, Papalini’s sixth place finish was very satisfied.
We are not fully satisfied in S2, because Bonnal normally won this class, but second place is also fine, with a heat win and second place, important points for the championship. Now we get ready for the next round!”
