Giaimo wins Italian GT Championship Round 2

Schepis Model driver Rosario Giaimo took the win at the second round of the AMSCI Italian 1:8 GT Nationals held at the 2024 EFRA 1:8 GT European Championships host Naxos World track in Sicily over the weekend.   Having won the season opener in March at Mini Autodromo Stradivari, Capricorn’s Alessio Mazzeo carried that form in qualifying securing the TQ for the 45-minute final ahead of Serpent’s Gabriele Paloschi.  After the Semi finals the Raptor of Loris Luise would line up third with Giaimo lining up P6 just behind Genius Racing’s defending Champion Alex D’angelo.  In the final Mazzeo would encounter problems at the start allowing Paloschi to lead until he suffered a flame out.  It was then the turn of D’Angelo to lead until the 27-minute mark when a mistake ended his race.  At the end it was Giaimo who lead home the field with a 2-lap advantage over the recovering Mazzeo and Paloschi.  In the Electric GT it was Serpent’s Natanaele Senesi who took the win from Filippo Beretta and Round 1 winner Mazzeo.
