POLE, VICTORY AND FASTEST LAP OF THE RACE FOR IVAN BELLAROSA IN FRANCIACORTA
15/05/2011 – Absolute supremacy for team Avelon Formula in Franciacorta during the first round of the European Sports Car Challenge 2011.
The Wolf GB08-Honda did not have rivals since qualifying and the Italian reigning champion Ivan Bellarosa obtained a solid pole position (1’08.434). The Italian driver kept the leadership of the race which was never questioned until the chequered flag; he also set the fastest lap of the race (1’08.284). A questionable 25 seconds penalty inflicted by stewards after the race relegated him to the second position of the final classification.
“The Wolf GB08 has been once again unbeatable on track. Stewards intervention stripped us with the victory and totally disagreeing with the championship organizator, Pedrazza, who wanted to impose on us this penalty, we decided not to take part in the second race in protest”.
