International GT Open 2014, Spa, Kessel Racing Wins
With the return of grey weather and températures dropping almost 15 degrees in 24 hours, the race at Spa offered a typical Spa Race with rain inviting itself during the driver change window while the race was under the safety-car following a big crash of chris van der Drift (BhaiTech McLaren) at the Raidillon. Lorenzo Bontempelli and Marco Frezza (who was making his return to the series) made the best use of the situation clinching a superb win with their Kessel Racing Ferrari F458, which re-opens completely the GTS title fight and was the best present for the team’s sporting director Tiziana Borghi, injured together with other team members, in a road racing when leaving the track yesterday evening.
Another GTS car, the Autorlando Porsche of Isaac Tutumlu-Dimitris Deverikos came in second ahead of the V8 Racing Corvette of Nicky Pastorelli-Miguel Ramos, who benefitted of the 1-lap penalty imposed to the Villorba Ferrari of Montermini-Rigon, who had dominated the first stint, and the BhaiTech McLaren of Pantano-Suzuki for doing the driver change under safety-car. Local heroes Enzo Ide-Maxime Soulet (GPR Aston Martin) took third in GTS.
