With round 5 of the 2017 Jokerteam GT12 Championship, initially scheduled for July 2nd, postponed to September 24th, round 6 kicked off regularly in sunny and hot conditions. As the qualification rounds got under way, it was a very close race between the top 2 across qualifying with both Mattia Dall’Oca and Ivan Milesi being the only drivers to score 27 lap runs. With the track conditions getting hotter, drivers found it hard to find the best set-up as well as tyre compound. Dall’Oca continued his good form from previous rounds of the Championship, taking pole position from Ivan Milesi and Alessandro Rampini. It was then a fierce battle among the top three qualifiers in the A-mains. In A1 Mattia Dall’Oca hit troubles allowing both Ivan Milesi and Alessandro Rampini to take 1st and 2nd with solid runs. In A2 Mattia delivered a faultless drive closely followed by Ivan and Alessandro Rampini. Finally, in the deciding A3, it was Ivan Milesi who held it down and took the win using his experience and talent. Ivan would capitalise on Mattia’s early mistake and never looked back, while Alessandro Rampini finished strong and wrapped up 3rd. A change in the Championship’s calendar will now see round 7 (initially scheduled for August 27th) postponed to October 8th in order to avoid conflict with the recently announced 2017 Italian UISP Championship which, for the first time in Italy, will include the GT12 class.
