2nd Round of Lamborghini Super Trofeo @ Dubai Autodrome on 16-18th Feb 2017
GDL made its debut in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East by claiming a victory in the first round at the Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit.
GDL Racing moves from Abu Dhabi to Dubai as it will be taking part in the second out of the three double rounds of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East. After the brilliant success achieved last Saturday in Race 2 with 18-year-old Dutch Rik Breukers and newcomer Axcil Jefferies, 22 from Zimbawe, both fastest in the two qualifying sessions, the Gianluca De Lorenzi’s team aims at another victorious weekend by lining-up four cars.
It was a brilliant success for the GDL duo, as Jefferies set the best time of 2:10.233 in Q1 and Breukers was fastest in Q2 by seven tenth on the second. Only a contact that involved Jefferies in the first laps of Race 1 prevented them from taking another win.
Experienced Italian Costantino Bertuzzi and Hong Kong’s driver Nigel Farmer, who claimed two victories at the Yas Marina track in the PRO-AM and finished third overall in Race 2 for X-One, the team of the former F1 driver Mimmo Schiattarella supported by GDL Racing.
The double podium of Andrew Haryanto, the reigning AM champion of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia, at his first commitment with the GDL Racing, completed a perfect weekend. The Indonesian racer finished second and third in his class.
The Dubai track will be hosting the second round of the championship from 16 to 18 February.
The two 50-minute races will be held on Friday after the practices and Saturday.
