The Bonaldi Motorsport couple of drivers doubled the success and, after the Saturday victory, they won also PRO-AM Race 2 in Silverstone. Absolute podium again for Martin Kodric.
The three Bonaldi Motorsport crews were placed at the very first leading positions of the crowded starting grid of Race 2 of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo second round. Martin Kodric started from the fourth absolute position while William Barbosa was at the sixth absolute position and poleman in PRO-AM; Barbosa shared his Huracàn no. 3 car with Ricardo Vera. Adrian Amstutz, together with Patrick Kujala, left from the fourteenth position.
The start with more than forty Lamborghini cars amazed the English excited spectators. At the Copse curve the Croatian driver Kodric was involved in an accident with another driver. This forced him to start again from the middle of the group. The young Bonaldi Motorsport talented driver didn’t give up and, taking advantage of both the safety cars during the first part of the race, he performed an amazing comeback which pushed him just behind the two leaders. The third step of the absolute podium was reached!
The drivers Amstutz and Kujala doubled their success in PRO-AM. After their Race 1 victory last Saturday, the two teammates reached an undeniable success. The Swiss driver performed a good start which enabled him to recover several positions in few time. He left his car to his teammate Kujala at the third category position. The Finnish driver was, as usual, flawless and aggressive enough to cross the finish line in first PRO-AM position. Barbosa and Vera were unlucky: due to a drive trough for wrong driver-change procedure, they were unable to challenge for the podium.
Two victories at the weekend and leadership in the championship: I think I celebrated my birthday in the best way! My goal for this year in Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo is obtaining the PRO-AM title together with Adrian and I’m driving to do that!”
I think I performed one of my best races of my career. I’m sure that if the second safety car hadn’t entered the track, I would have gained more positions before the driver change. Then, Patrick was great. However, we mustn’t look at the championship standings but go on this way, race after race… Only starting from September I’ll have a look at the standings…
