One week after the success at Brands Hatch in the Blancpain GT Sprint Cup Series, Kessel Racing went back to England for the second round of the Endurance series.
QUALIFYING. Qualifying took place on Sunday morning after testing and free practice on Saturday. The cars were very evenly matched with many being separated by less than a second, similar to what happened in Monza in the first race of the season of the Endurance series. The Ferrari 488 GT3 of Broniszewski, Bonacini and Rizzoli clocked the tenth fastest time in the PRO-AM class after getting held up by traffic. David Perel put on a magnificent show by taking pole position behind the wheel of the Ferrari which he drives with Earle and Delhez. Gitlin, Zanuttini and Talbot took fifth position in the AM class.
TIZIANA BORGHI (Team Manager): “We have closed our campaign in England bringing home some important points with the PRO-AM car, in the Gentlemen’s we had a technical problem that forced the withdrawal of our 111 car, while the 888 had a great end to the race. It was a tricky race because historically Silverstone is a track that plays well into the hands of Ferrari. Tomorrow we’ll start thinking about our next commitments on more favourable tracks such as Paul Ricard”.
