Maranello, 28 March – Last weekend Monza’s Autodromo Nazionale hosted the Monza 4-hour race, the first of four rounds of the 2011 Endurance Champions Cup, featuring a field of over 20 cars.
The endurance race, that was first run in 1965, was dominated by the AF Corse team which managed to get both its cars into the top two. The win was taken by the pairing of Marco Cioci and Piergiuseppe Perazzini in the F430 GT2 entered in the LM GTE category. They finished a lap ahead of the second Ferrari run by the Piacenza team, which was driven by Rui Aguas and Robert Kauffman who set the fastest lap (1.50.763). Completing the podium, albeit four laps adrift, were Andrea Mamè and Mirco Zanardini in the Lamborghini Gallardo run by Mik Corse.
In a contest of attrition that saw the retirement of most of the runners in the course of the four hours, the F430GT2 one-two provides further proof of the success of a car that has become one of the most decorated in the history of GT racing.
The next round of the Endurance Champions Cup will be the 500 Miglia scheduled for the weekend of May 15 at Imola’s Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari.
