Magnificent race for the Swiss-Finnish crew, excellent fifth place for Kodric.
Today Bonaldi Motorsport team confirmed what did yesterday. At this Belgian weekend they performed a series of really positive results.
A sunny weather welcomed the drivers on the racetrack for the morning Qualifying Practice when Kodric gained the third position while Amstutz placed thirteenth. As previewed, Rolf Ineichen renounced to both the Qualifying Practice and Race 2 due to his engagement with the 24 Hours of Spa which started just few minutes after the Lamborghini race.
In Race 2 the drivers of the Super Trofeo were welcomed by a huge audience who was also supported by a sunny summer day, which is an uncommon event in Spa. The surprises began before the start: just behind the big group, ready for the start, a first accident occurred between a couple of cars. Despite this accident, the start was regularly given but just for few metres. The two Bonaldi Motorsport crews drove keeping their positions when a car behind them placed across in the group and two other drivers were concerned in a big collision. In the following part of the lap, before the Safety Car joined the racetrack, Kodric was forced to leave a position. The join of the Race Direction car shelved the results for five laps. As it was impossible to pass the start straight, the Huracàn continued these laps while passing by the pit-lane, a procedure which moved the opening of the Pit Window from the twenty-fifth to the fifteenth minute of the race. The pit stops started immediately after the Safety car left the track. Amstutz was one of the first to go back to the pit while Kodric delayed his stop. When the twin car, driven by Kujala, went back to the track, it started a series of very fast laps and overtaking which pushed him to lead the race. A penalty of 5.655 seconds was given to Kujala by the Race Direction because the Pit Window was not respected. Nothing was lost: the Finnish driver, thanks to his series of very fast laps, kept his advantage on his direct pursuer Lind, whose result was always higher than 6 seconds, and crossed the finish line winning with a safe advantage. Kodric instead placed fifth during the last laps. Little mystery on the podium at the end of the race: due to a mistake in filling the standings in, Kujala and Amstutz were put on the third step of the podium. This little misunderstanding did not change the result: the crew on the car no. 34 was the absolute leader of the weekend in SPA.
