Audi dominated the Italian GT Championship opener at Mugello as Riccardo Agostini completed a perfect debut at the wheel of the “made in Ingolstadt” car.



The Padova-based racer was fastest in his qualifying session, as well as his team-mates Mattia Drudi and Daniel Mancinelli.



The trio maintained their supremacy in the Sunday’s race. Agostini drove in the first stint on P2, before overtaking the Stefano Comandini’s BMW at the 38th minute to take the lead and leave the car to Mancinelli with a margin of ten seconds over the rest of the field.



Mancinelli maintained the lead during the second hour, bur a problem to the rear wing occurred to Drudi in the last driving stint, forced the Italian racer to defend hard his position from the Alexander Sims’ BMW in last laps. Eventually Drudi finished on P1, with a mere margin of 26 milliseconds over the Briton.



Next commitment for Agostini is the Italian GT Sprint opener at Misano, on 1/2 August.
