After two months of break, the Sprint Series of the Italian GT Championship will resume this weekend in Mugello. A total of 26 cars in GT3, GT4 and GT Cup will make it to the track to fight in the traditional two races of the length of 50 minutes and one lap.

GT3: Fourteen GT3 cars are entered. The Audi R8 LMS is leading the classification with Daniel Mancinelli and Riccardo Agostini, that claimed one win and a P3 in Misano. At Mugello, Mancinelli will not be present and the Audi Sport Italia’s lineup will be completed by Mattia Drudi, who has been defending the colors of the Ingolstadt brand in the Endurance races in Mugello and Vallelunga. The Audi drivers are chased in the classification by four strong drivers: Comandini-Zug (BMW M6 GT3-BMW Team Italia) and Roda-Rovera (Ferrari 488-AF Corse) that lag 10 points behind the classification leaders. Lorenzo Ferrari and Daniel Zampieri (Mercedes AMG GT3-Antonelli Motorsport) are 12 points shy of the top, but the driver from Rome will not be present and the 17 years old from Piacenza will be sided by Loris Spinelli at Mugello.

The Ferrari 488 lot will see three cars competing for the PRO-AM classification: Hudspeth-Michelotto (Easy Race), Cressoni-Mann (AF Corse) and Di Amato-Vezzoni (RS Racing), that are all within eleven points in the order in the provisional classification.

Ready to bounce back from the disappointment of Misano’s race-2, Galbiati-Venturini in the Lamborghini Huracan of Imperiale Racing will be resolute to repeat the victory in the recent race of the Endurance in Vallelunga. The sister cars fielded by VSR will then be driven by Nemoto-Tujula and Kroes-Pulcini, while the Huracan of LP Racing by Cazzaniga-Marcucci.

Three Porsche GT3R will be fielded by Dinamic Motorsport, as the team decided to double its presence compared to the race in Misano. AM classification leaders Cassarà-De Giacomi will be sided by another car driven by Lebanon’s Fadel Habib, while Ebimotors will compete with Venerosi-Baccani.





GT4: Yet another duel among Mercedes, Porsche and BMW is ahead in GT4. The classification is currently led by Segù-De Luca (Mercedes AMG GT4) that claimed one win and a second place in Misano. The Nova Race drivers lead Gnemmi-Pera (Porsche Cayman-Ebimotors) by eight points and Guerra-Riccitelli (BMW M4 GT4-BMW Team Italia) by fifteen, while GT4 AM another car from Affalterbach is in the lead, that driven by Luca Magnoni who recently won the AM Endurance, and with the BMW M4 GT4 of the rookie Paolo Meloni (W&D). The Mercedes AMG lot will be completed by the car of Villorba Corse that confirmed Andrea Belicchi and Jody Vullo, who claimed P3 in Misano’s race2. The Porsche cars will be driven by Gnemmi-Pera and Piccioli-De Castro, but Ebimotors will also field a third car for De Amicis-Di Giusto, that were present in the Endurance races, while a Cayman run by Centro Porsche Ticino driven Vebster-Riva.




GT CUP: As in Misano, three GT Cup cars will be present in Mugello. Matteo Greco and Riccardo Chiesa claimed one win and a second place in Misano and are firmly on top of the classification leading Misano’s race-1 winners Sauto-Carboni (Porsche 991 4.0-Duell Race) and Demarchi-Cristoni (Ferrari 488 Challenge-SR&R).
