GDL Racing celebrates the Michelin Cup title of Bashar Mardini with another win
GDL Racing ended in the best way the 2018 Carrera Cup Italia season. At Imola, in the seventh and last round of the one-make series open to the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars, the team led by Gianluca De Lorenzi celebrated the Michelin Cup title that Bashar Mardini achieved one month before at the Vallelunga track.
The Emirates’ driver claimed his sixt victory in the very last race of the weekend, while Enrico Fulgenzi showed well once more, neverthless he missed the podium due to the difficult conditions in both races.
The Italian driver started his weekend by claiming the fifth place in a heavy rain effected-race one that was definitely red flagged after only five laps, when he already has recovered two positions. Fulgenzi did well also in race two, splitted in two parts for another red flag due to an accident in the first stage when he was third; eventually he finished fourth.
Mardini, who was at his first season in the Carrera Cup Italia, claimed two excellent results: in the Saturday’s race he finished ninth overall and second of the class. In race two he claimed the seventh overall over 21 cars and won the Michelin Cup.
