Maranello, 19 November - The AF Corse 458 Italia GT2 will start the Rome 6 Hours from pole, when the final round of the Endurance Champions Cup gets underway at Vallelunga. Gimmi Bruni set the fastest time of 1.31.85, having been immediately fastest in this morning's free practice alongside his team-mates in the Ferrari, Perazzini and Cioci.
Today's pole is only the very latest in a long line of extraordinary performances from AF Corse this year, having taken both the drivers' and team trophies in the LMS and ILMC series, thus giving Ferrari the titles in both championships. For this final round of the season, Amato Ferrari's team has lined up four cars in Vallelunga including three in the GT3 class. Of these, the seventh best time overall, second in class in 1.33.929, was set by Giancarlo Fisichella who is crewed with Vittorio Ghirelli and Lorenzo Case, just ahead of its sister car driven by Jack Gerber-Niki Cadei-Matt Griffin, third in 1.34.017. Another 458 Italia GT3 driven by Ferdinando Geri-Thomas Biagi-Filippo Francioni was tenth overall and fourth in class in 1.35.521, running competitively despite technical problems which prevented it from taking part in free practice.
Worthy of note, a second place, 1.307 off Bruni's time for the Kessel Racing 458 Italia GT2 driven by Kola Aluka -Thomas Kemenater. The Edil Cris Ferrari was fifth in 1.33.624 for Alessandro Garofano-Luca Rangoni-Raffaele Giammaria.
