GT3: A deserved win for BMW Team Italia’s drivers that built it in qualifying when Zug claimed the pole position, despite going wide at the first chicane that made the 17 years old German slip down to P5 early on. Despite this mistake, the young BMW driver kept his cool and did not lose contact with the front runners, while Comandini in the second stint found his way past Vezzoni taking the lead and fending off Nemoto who, together with co-equiper Tujula, ended on the second step of the podium. The third place went to Drudi-Agostini at the end of a run in the lead of the young Italian, but Audi Sport Italia’s pairing was pushed down due to the 20s time handicap they had to serve at the drivers’ change.
Despite the penalty, Audi Sport Italia’s pairing secured twelve points that allowed Riccardo Agostini to get the lead of the provisional classification. At the feet of the podium, Galbiati-Venturini (Lamborghini Huracan-Imperiale Racing), led Roda-Rovera (Ferrari 488-AF Corse) as the driver from Varese completed again another great comeback in the second stint, while Kroes-Pulcini (Lamborghini Huracan-VSR) were sixth and proceeded Ferrari-Spinelli (Mercedes AMG GT3). Spinelli came to the fore in the final stages climbing up to P4, but several penalties made the Antonelli Motorsport’s lineup slip down to the final seventh position ahead of Di Amato-Vezzoni (Ferrari 488-RS Racing), that were the first of GT3 PRO-AM. The ninth place went to Marcucci-Frassineti (Lamborghini Huracan-LP Racing), while the top ten was rounded off by Stefano Pezzucchi (Mercedes AMG GT3-KMS), who was the first of GT3 AM. Hudspeth-Michelotto (Ferrari 488-Easy Race) were stopped by an oil leak, while Cassarà-De Giacomi were involved in a contact and lost some ground.


GT4: It has been the best race of the year. The duel among Mercedes, Porsche and Bmw continued until the chequered flag with the stunning win claimed by Segù-De Luca (Mercedes AMG GT4-Nova Race) in the second stint when they got past the Cayman driven by Gnemmi. Poleman Pera took the lead chased by Segù, but in the second part of the race De Luca did not have problems to take the lead ending ahead of the other AMG of Belicchi-Vullo (Villorba Corse) and the Porsche Cayman di Gnemmi-Pera (Ebimotors). At the feet of the podium, Guerra-Riccitelli (BMW M4 GT4-BMW Team Italia) proceeded Piccioli-De Castro (Porsche Cayman-Ebimotors), while in AM the victory went to De Amicis-Di Giusto (Porsche Cayman-Ebimotors) from Vebster-Riva.


GT CUP: The fourth win in five races went to Matteo Greco and Riccardo Chiesa (Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo-Easy Race). Luca Demarchi (Ferrari 488-SR&R) kept the lead in the opening laps leading Greco, but on lap 13 Greco took the lead and later on he handed the car over to Chiesa on top. The Swiss driver did not have problems to keep the lead until the chequered flag. His 488 Challenge was followed by Alessandro Berton and strengthened the first position in the classification of the Easy Race drivers.
