Maranello, 18 September – Victory in the second and final leg of the International GT Open championship at Portimao this weekend went to the crew of Joel Camathias and Soheil Ayari, at the wheel of JMB Racing’s Ferrari 458 Italia GT2. The top podium finish gives Ayari the lead in the drivers’ classification, six points ahead of Miguel Ramos, who finished fourth today, at the wheel of the Edil Cris Ferrari 458 Italia GT2, teamed with Raffaele Giammaria. Second was the Villorba Ferrari in the hands of Andrea Montermini-Emanuele Moncini, followed by the Vittoria Competizioni entered Ferrari F430 GTC, crewed by Marco Frezza-Cochito Lopez.
The battle in the GTS class was also closely contested with victory going to Stefano Bizzarri and Andrea Rizzoli (AF Corse-458 Italia GT3,) who took the flag ahead of current series leaders Bontempelli-Gattuso (Kessel Racing-458 Italia GT3) and the Ford RPM of Alex Mortimer-Peter Bamford, who have shortened the gaps going into fifth and sixth places in the championship. Andrea Rizzoli was making his debut in the series, coming off the back of experience gained in the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli where, last year he took the title in the Coppa Shell for gentleman drivers, while Bontempelli is another name to emerge from the same series, currently running second in the Italian Trofeo Pirelli.
The next and penultimate round of the International GT Open takes place at Monza on 2 October, prior to the final one in Barcelona at the end of October.
