GDL Racing’s Max Donzelli impresses in the Carrera Cup Italia round at Vallelunga
Max Donzelli impressed last weekend at Vallelunga, in the fourth of six Carrera Cup Italia double rounds. The Milan-based racer showed well in the GDL Racing car. Donzelli claimed the Silver Cup podium in a thrilling Race 2, finishing second behind leader Stefano Bianconi.
With a 705-millisecond gap from the race winner, Donzelli took an excellent result following the fourth position secured in Race 1 by his team-mate Max Montagnese, with whom he shares a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup fielded by the Gianluca De Lorenzi‘s squad.
With four races still to be held at Mugello and Monza, Montagnese is currently third in the drivers’ standings, with only five points less from the lead and three more points over Donzelli.
“Both Donzelli and Montagnese are talented rookie drivers“, De Lorenzi commented. “They made experience with the road cars and are racing their first season in the series.”
The 25-year-old newcomer GDL Racing’s Risto Vukov, confirmed to be in great shape as well. The young Macedonian ended the first race on 13th, finishing Race 2 just out of the top-10 with a good P11.
The next roud of the one-make series will be at Mugello on 3/4 October.
