At Vallelunga the Padova-based racer shares driving duties with Daniel Mancinelli and Mattia Drudi in th Audi GT3 car



 



Twenty days after the most recent round at Imola, Riccardo Agostini is set for the third of four Italian GT Endurance races scheduled this weekend, 19th/20th September at Vallelunga.
 



At the Roman track Mattia Drudi will be re-joining the Agostini and Daniel Mancinelli pair. The trio led to victory the Audi Sport Italia' R8 LMS GT3 car at the Mugello opener. A win that costed Agostini and Mancinelli a 30- second time penalty in the following round at Imola, when they secured P7 and more points alongside Vito Postigione.



Moving back second in the drivers' standings, Agostini and Mancinelli are now three points behind the current leaders Antonio Fuoco, Giorgio Roda and Alessio Rovera (Ferrari). This weekend the Audi trio will not have any time penalty, differently from their rivals who have to pay a total of half a minute during the pit-stops.



The Vallelunga round is certainly crucial for the Audi duo, that currently leads the Sprint series after claiming a victory and a third place at Misano.



This weekend the 3-hour race will start on Sunday at 11:40, live streamed at www.facebook.com/CIGranTurismo. Qualifying are scheduled on Saturday since 12:50. The two Friday's one-hour practices will commente at 11:25 and 15:00, with another sessione scheduled on Saturday at 9:00.
