Maranello, July 2 – The Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 of Jaime Melo and Toni Vilander took third place in qualifying at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola ahead of tomorrow’s 6-Hour race, the fourth round of this year’s Intercontinental Le Mans Cup. On the famous Italian circuit the BMWs of Augusto Farfus-Jörg Müller (1.44.468) and Pedro Lamy-Dirk Werner (1.44.683) topped the GTE Pro category ahead of the number 71 car prepared by AF Corse (1.44.691). The other Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 run by the Piacenza team, driven by Giancarlo Fisichella and Gianmaria Bruni (1.45.130), was only seventh despite having dominated yesterday’s free practice and been very quick in this morning’s practice session. The changing conditions of the track created some oversteer problems but the Roman duo hasn’t lost hope of doing well in tomorrow’s race which gets under way at 1200.
The F430 GT2s entered in the GTE Am category did well with the car driven by Marco Cioci-Piergiuseppe Perazzini-Stéphane Lémeret second (1.45.906) ahead of the other red car driven by Michele Rugolo-Niclas Jönsson-Tracy Krohn (1.46.219). The class pole went to the Porsche 911 of Patrick Long and Gianluca Roda (1.45.650).
