Italian GT12 Series Rd2 – Report

The Jokerteam Bolzano hosted round 2 of the 2019 Italian GT12 Series and for the occasion the town hall was setup with a 30×15 metres ETS carpet track. The track offered a very good grip from the get go and the unique positioning of the rostrum (installed within a huge spectators’ stand) allowed outstanding visibility of the whole track to all drivers. As controlled practice and qualification rounds unfolded during the morning, it was Alessio Tolomelli (Schumacher) that emerged as the man to beat, setting the pace with massive consistency and speed which was ultimately worth the TQ spot for the afternoon’s finals. Locking the first row for the A-mains, Mattia Dall’Oca (Schumacher), after having struggled with the setup of his car during the early stages of the qualification rounds, regained competitiveness just in time to secure P2, ahead of Rd 1 winner Alessio Mota (Schumacher). A-mains in the afternoon saw another dominant performance by Alessio Tolomelli, who was able to bring home the win home after imposing his pace in all three finals. The race for the lower steps of the podium saw a fierce, but fair battle with several position changes among Mattia and Alessio Mota, with Mattia coming out on top and securing second place.
