IVAN LAZZARINI: “A weekend where we limited damages, Thomas got 3 second places on a track that was not easy for him, good for us the second place overall.
Still in S1 class, Monticelli was not comfortable on the city circuit, on Saturday in the rain he obtained the sixth time, while in the races he was unable to enter the fight for the top, excellent recovery in the third heat after the crash in the start, where he obtained the seventh place and overall. We are also satisfied with Pals’ performance, who finished in seventh place in the first heat, but unfortunately was relegated by 5 positions due to the sound level test.
As for the European Championship, we struggled; in any case Bonnal takes the third place overall on equal points with Bozza, Steve and Luca keep the classification open, it will be hard, but we will try until the end.
Now we are preparing for the two final races, the first one will be in Castelletto di Branduzzo”.
