Maranello, 17 July – Ferraris were in action this weekend at the fourth round of the Spanish GT Championship, as Portugal’s Estoril circuit staged a two hour and ten minute race. The win went to Portuguese brothers, Miguel and Joao Ramos, their first of the season with the Edil Cris 458 Italia GT2. They also set the fastest lap in 1.42.174.
The Ramos duo took the lead right from the opening lap, making the most of a poor start from the Aurora Racing Team F430 GTC which had been on pole, going on to finish third, consolidating its lead in the championship.
Miguel Ramos, a very experienced GT driver who was champion in 2002, was the real force of the race, along with his brother, crossing the line with around 20 seconds in hand over his rivals. Ferrari also won the GT Light category, with the Baporo Motorsport 430 Challenge, driven by Pol Rosell and Miguel Toril.
The Spanish GT championship now faces a long summer break before returning for more action at Portimao on 18 September, alongside the sixth round of the GT Open championship.
