Winning start for Bonaldi Motorsport in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo thanks to the English driver Dean Stoneman who gains an imperative victory, in the second race scheduled at Misano Adriatico…
Misano Adriatico (ITA). Bonaldi Motorsport consolidates its winning tradition in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo, winning the second race in the season debut at Misano Adriatico. To give success to the team led by Marco Bielli, was the English driver Dean Stoneman who, after finishing in sixth position the night race on Saturday, obtained an imperative victory in the race that closed the weekend on Sunday. After gaining the fifth and fourth fastest time in qualifying, Stoneman had an excellent start in race 1 which led him to occupy the third position; following a drive through imposed on the leading driver of the race, the third position changes into second position. However, after the compulsory pit stop halfway through the race, the English driver finds himself into the group and finishes in sixth position. Race 2 had a very different story… After a good start, Stoneman consolidates the fourth position in the first part of the race where the positions remain frozen; after the compulsory half-race pit stop, the race changed its history. Stoneman overcomes Van der Horst and moves into third position, then he takes advantage of a puncture that occurred to the runner up Postiglione and he starts a chase towards the leader Lewandowski. In a few laps he gets under the leader who overtakes at the Rio curve: 5 minutes later Dean Stoneman takes his first career victory in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo.
SI am very satisfied with the victory, we really deserved it: Stoneman proved to be a driver of great value who has adapted very quickly to the new sporting reality..
