In the second round of Lamborghini Super Trofeo on the Nurburgring circuit, Bonaldi Motorsport gains in a clear way the second victory of the season thanks to Kikko Galbiati and Dean Stoneman…
Nurburgring (GER). Ludwig van Beethoven introduced for the first time in his symphony number 2, that heroic trait which then became a distinctive feature in the subsequent compositions of the German master: Bonaldi Motorsport in the first race scheduled on the Nurburgring circuit gained his second victory of the season. And it did it unequivocally: Dean Stoneman and Kikko Galbiati, making their debut with the team, dominated the race from start to finish. Starting from the third position on the grid, Stoneman makes a perfect start and he takes the lead at the first corner, overtaking two opponents in one stroke; after a couple of laps in which he takes care to defend the first position, he manages to increase his margin until the safety car enters on the track before the driver change. Galbiati takes over and at the restart increases his advantage over his opponents and wins in a clear way. Race 2 is very hard: Galbiati, in fact, starts from the last position as the breakage of a drive shaft did not allow him to participate in qualifying: in his stint he starts a comeback that takes him up to eighth position before the pit stop of mid race. Stoneman makes more overtaking and closes in sixth position completing an incredible comeback.
It was a positive weekend, for me the team was all new and we have been working hard since Friday to have the best car. The guys from Bonaldi Motorsport did a great job and I’m satisfied with the weekend: the victory in race 1 is obviously the greatest satisfaction, but the comeback in race 2 also proved our worth.
The team has once again proved its worth and we can look forward to the next races with confidence.
