CIGT. Vincenzo Scarpetta is the new Italian GT Cup Am champion in the Sprint Series of the Italian Gran Turismo Championship. He sealed the title in the final round at Imola, where the 17-year-old, at the wheel of the Formula Racing Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo number 290, ended the season with a double-win to consolidate his lead in the standings. However, in the GT3 Pro-Am, Jules Castro and Luka Nurmi missed out in the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020 number 51 of AF Corse, closing the championship in second place.
Leonardo Colavita, driving the Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo number 199 of Double TT Racing, this time alongside Giorgio Maggi, just fell short of victory in the GT Cup Pro-Am. Two class wins were not enough for Colavita, who had to settle for third place overall. Jean-Luc D’Auria and Stuart White in AF Corse’s Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020 number 52 finished the season with a third place in Race-2 and fourth in the overall standings.
