At Vallelunga, to the north of Rome (ITA), the third endurance race in the 2022 Italian GT Championship was held in mid-September.


The #50 BMW M4 GT3 of BMW Italia by Ceccato Racing had Stefano Comandini, Giuseppe Fascicolo (both ITA) and Alfred Nilsson (SWE) at the wheel.

Things looked promising for the trio as they started the race from second in the GT3 Pro-Am class, and from sixth place overall, however damage forced the BMW M4 GT3 to retire after it came into contact with a competitor after a safety car restart.

The championship is still far from decided. The trio is currently in second place in the GT3 Pro-Am classification, and just two points off the top as they head into the final at Monza (ITA) at the beginning of October.
