02.07.2019 – A top class performance by Ivan Bellarosa and Guglielmo Belotti earned Wolf Racing Cars the victory in the fourth round of Speed Euroseries by Ultimate Cup Series last weekend at the circuit of Mugello (ITA).
The driver pairing of the Italian manufacturer and team Avelon Formula, managed to interpret at best the Italian circuit despite the 60 kg ballast added on their #45 Wolf GB08 Tornado following the Balance of Performance mechanism introduced in this round. The team worked hard to define a setup that could patch up this technical difficulty and the efforts were rewarded by a deserved win at the end of a very strong weekend.
The challenge in Mugello started with the Normas M20 of Krafft Racing shining in free practice and the #2 car driven by Paul Aegerter and Dominique Cauvin posted the fastest time in the first session. Bellarosa and Belotti got it back together and led the pack in FP2 and in qualifying on Saturday, when they posted a great time (1’41.444s) earning them the pole position. Behind them, the #44 Wolf GB08 Tornado driven by Pollini-Pegoraro was second and the #1 Norma M20FC driven by Bortolami-Cristini third.
The race has been quite eventful. Bellarosa and Belotti shared driving duties on the #45 Wolf GB08 Tornado dominating the race from lights to flag and posting also the fastest lap of the race. Behind them, a great performance was put in by Pollini-Pegoraro, that were unfortunately slowed down in the closing hour and lost their chance to end on the podium. The second place went to the French pair Aegerter-Cauvin that repeated the result obtained in Dijon-Prenois on the #2 Norma M20 FC run by Krafft Racing. Bortolami and Cristini rounded off the podium with a performance in crescendo, which allows the latter to keep the lead in the drivers’ standings despite being only two points clear of Bellarosa and Belotti.
After this round, the second win of the season for the strong pairing of Avelon Formula makes the classification quite open and interesting. The second part of the season announces therefore to be particularly exciting and not to be missed, starting from the next round that will see Speed Euroseries by Ultimate Cup Series on track at the Ricardo Tormo circuit of Valencia (ESP) after the summer break from September 27th to 29th.
