An excellent start for Axel Sartingen who claims pole position in the Coppa Shell class. The Lueg Sportivo team driver is barely able to hide his satisfaction: "It is my first pole in two years of the Challenge and I got it right here in Monza, at the Temple of Speed, where I have raced for the first time. The circuit is great, I had a lot of fun, it's really fast. Sure, you have to know how to handle all that speed, but it appears that I’ve managed to succeed. Also, to be honest, I got lucky as Roger Grouwels moved into the Trofeo Pirelli Am class and that’s why I stood a better chance of getting the pole!"
