....in the weekend of the World Finals in Vallelunga



LAMBORGHINI SUPER TROFEO EUROPE
 



The second place in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe 2018 with Vito Postiglione and Karol Basz and a splendid podium for Hans Fabri in LC ended the positive season of Imperiale Racing at the circuit of Vallelunga (ITA), that also housed the World Finals.


The Italian outfit had a tougher weekend than expected, but managed to score good performances thanks to the grit of the drivers that led the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO: namely, Vito Postiglione (ITA) and Karol Basz (PL) on the #44 car in PRO, Davide Venditti (ITA) and Massimo Mantovani (ITA) on the #53 in Pro-Am and Hans Fabri (NL) on the #88 in LC.



The intense closing round has been quite difficult since free practice and gaps have been quite small, which envisaged a weekend-long battle on the edge of the hundredths of a second. The first qualifying session saw Postiglione ending fifth on the #44 car in 1’31.588s, and a positive Venditti placed the #53 car in seventh place of Pro-Am in 1’32.852s. Fabri posted a best lap of 1’38.795s on the #88 car, which earned him the fourth quickest time in LC.



A great lap by Basz in Q2 ( 1’31.906s) placed the #44 car to the fourth place, while Mantovani was ninth in Pro-Am on the #53 in 1’34.067s. Fabri repeated the result of the first session in LC qualifying the #88 car in fourth again in 1’36.043s.




Race one has been quite exciting and Postiglione pushed hard since the beginning and negotiated turn one in P2, fighting with the British driver James Pull (#3), who eventually spun. Postiglione started chasing P1, but a drive-through for jumping the start relegated Imperiale Racing’s driver to the back of the pack. Both drivers put in a good comeback race though and Basz closed the race in ninth place.



The performance of the #53 car has been quite regular. Venditti has been quite aggressive since the beginning and managed to complete a very positive stint before handing the car over to Mantovani. His teammate run a constant race crossing the finish line in seventh place of Pro-Am.



Fabri had a very good race in LC. The Dutch driver displayed a great feeling with the Italian circuit since early on and managed to get the most of all the chances he had. A good race pace allowed the #88 car to recover one place and secure a positive P3, that was the second podium of the season after that claimed in Misano in June.



Race two has been more difficult. Basz had a good start on the #44 car, but the heat of the first lap saw him slip down to P6. When the Polish driver was putting in very good lap-times to close in on the front runners a technical issue forced him to an early stop. For this reason, Imperiale Racing’s pairing could not continue the fight for the victory of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo. Postiglione and Basz closed, therefore, a season that saw them always among the protagonists in second place.



The #53 car also had a troubled race. Following a great stint by Mantovani, Venditti climbed up to P8 overall and P4 of Pro-Am. A contact in the closing stages forced the pairing to park the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO in the pits early.



Fabri had another strong race in LC instead. The Dutch driver was close to securing another podium and crossed the finish line in fourth place of his class.



The racing action continued also on Saturday and Sunday with the World Finals, but several twists prevented Imperiale Racing from achieving what deserved. Hans Fabri did not take part in the races due to some family issues that forced him to leave the track, while the #44 and #53 pairings defended the colors of the Mirandola-based team.



Basz was ninth of PRO in Q1 on the #44 car with its best lap completed in 1’31.985s, while Mantovani led the #53 car to the twelfth time in Pro-Am in 1’33.723s. Postiglione put in all his grit in Q2 and posted a 1’31.911s that earned him the fifth quickest time, just under 0.4s shy of the pole position time. Venditti qualified the #53 in eleventh place of Pro-Am in 1’32.723s.



Basz was resolute to recover several positions in race one since the beginning and put in some spectacular driving. The driver of the #44 car had two excursions on the grass to avoid some rivals though and the debris he picked up in this way clogged the water radiator pipes making temperatures rise. The team decided therefore to stop the car in the pits. Unfortunately, the problem could not be fixed in time for race two and the lineup had to skip the closing race of the World Finals.




The #53 car put in a great comeback in race one. Mantovani found a great feeling with the track and recovered several places before the pit stop. Venditti kept the momentum and crossed the finish line in sixth place of Pro-Am after recovering six places. This magic could not be repeated in race two though, as Venditti and several other cars were involved in an incident before crossing the starting line and had to stop on the side of the track.



Imperiale Racing’s season in Lamborghini Super Trofeo ended with a good haul of 4 pole positions, 4 wins, 2 second places and 3 third thanks to the fundamental contribution of drivers, partners and staff that worked with great focus from the first to the last race. The Italian team will unveil the programs for season 2019 in the next few months.
