21.09.2008: AC Milan and Galatasaray SK both score in race two

Superleague Formula: Sunday, September 21, 2008

Scuderia Playteam SaraFree started the second Superleague Formula race at the Nuerburgring from sixth and seventh respectively for Alessandro Pier Guidi (Galatasaray SK) and Robert Doornbos (AC Milan) after the grid was reversed following their win and third place in the morning race.

Robert Doornbos (AC Milan) finished the race sixth, taking 29 additional points this afternoon and putting AC Milan tenth in the championship. Alessandro Pier Guidi (Galatasaray SK) finished in seventh, scoring an additional 26 points that takes him to ninth in the championship.

Both cars drove a competitive race from their positions on the reversed grid with Alessandro Pier Guidi (Galatasaray SK) one of the first group of drivers to pit on lap 9 while Robert Doornbos (AC Milan) staying out until lap 11.

Pier Guidi was up to sixth and Doornbos seventh as the safety car came in after dealing with Glasgow Rangers spin and stall in the middle of the track. The two Scuderia Playteam SaraFree cars fought for position and after Alessandro Pier Guidi, pushing hard, made a mistake in the first corner of the final lap, Robert Doonrbos passed him.

AC Milan went on to finish sixth and Galatasaray SK seventh.

Robert Doornbos (AC Milan) commented: "The second race went well. I had a good start even if it was a bit messy around me. However, I was disappointed that I could not gain any positions at the start. That would have changed the race although I am convinced that the winner of race one is really penalised to start from the back in the reversed grid.

There is no way you can get back in a strong position in the front in normal conditions unless the weather plays into your favour. I did not have a lot of problems in the race. Atletico Madrid touched wheels with me, but luckily nothing happened and I did not damage too much the car and could continue with the same pace.

Overall the weekend went well and we made good points and I am ready for the next weekend of racing in Zolder."

 

Alessandro Pier Guidi (Galatasaray SK) added: "It was a good race. The start was alright, at least better than in race 1, but I was missing speed. I am not sure if it was necessary to run the pace car for a car stalled in the middle of the track with no debris scattered anywhere. The marshals could have possibly pushed it without danger.

Anyway, I do not know if it was dangerous for them to go on the track at that point of the race. I want to thank the team for their great help over this weekend. At least, I am pleased with the points we scored."

With a win, two podiums this weekend and scoring points in race two, Team Galatasaray SK ranks 9th in the Superleague Formula Championship with 90 points and Team AC Milan is 10th with 85 points.
