TCR DSG Europe @ Misano - Volpato and De Matteo win for Élite Motorsport

07.07.2021: Gabriele Volpato and Alfredo De Matteo shared one of the Élite Motorsport-run Volkswagen Golf GTI cars to win the second round of the TCR DSG Europe series in Misano.


Gabriele Volpato and Alfredo De Matteo shared one of the Élite Motorsport-run Volkswagen Golf GTI cars to win the second round of the TCR DSG Europe series in Misano.


The 2-hour race began with drama, as a puncture forced the pole-sitting Tecnodom Sport Audi RS 3 LMS of Jonathan Giacon to a pit stop that cost two laps to the winning team of the season opener at Monza.



De Matteo fought for the lead with his teammate Marco Butti and Simone Patrinicola’s HC Racing Audi, but the latter retired with a broken suspension.  The second part of the race was enlivened by the recovery of the Tecnodom Audi that Jonathan Giacon handed to his brother Steven after a stint of more than one hour.


Benefiting from a sudden shower and a safety car intervention following the incident that eliminated Paolo Palanti’s CUPRA, Steven Giacon moved into the second place and finished a close second.



The BF Motorsport Audi of Samuele Piccin and Romy Dall’Antonia completed the podium, repeating their result from Monza.



The third round will be run on 18/19 September at Grobnik.
