Hankook Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 8e in Nürburgring 24u

Het debuut van de Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 in de Nürburgring 24u lange afstandsrace, was bijna als winnaar over de finish gekomen, ware het niet dat pech roet in het eten gooide en het team terug zakte naar een achtste plaats:


The latest stop on the endurance racing calendar for the Ferrari marque was last weekend's famous Nürburgring 24 Hour with the Hankook Farnbacher team entering a 458 Italia GT2 car in the "Green Hell" alongside around 200 other cars on the long configuration of the German track, which includes the current F1 circuit and the old north ring. One lap of the track is 25.359 km long and no less than 700 drivers tackled the task. Best time in last Thursday’s qualifying sessions went to the crew of Dominik Farnbacher, Allan Simonsen, Marco Seefried and Jaime Melo, who lapped in 8.23.764, and that was good enough for the Ferrari as rain wiped out any chance of doing better on Friday.
The twenty four hour race got underway at 16.00 on Saturday and the Farnbacher Ferrari led from the start right up to the fifth hour when a technical problem saw the car spiral down the order; but but by the end of the 24 hours they were back to eighth, a very significant result for the only Maranello car entered in the massive field. Winners of the Nürburgring 24 Hour this year were Marc Lieb, Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas and Lucas Luhr in their Manthey Racing Porsche. It crossed the line ahead of the BMW of Jorg Muller, Augusto Farfus, Uwe Alzen and Pedro Lamy, with third place going to the Audi driven by Marc Basseng, Frank Stippler, Marcel Fassler and Andrea Piccini.
I ragazzi strani che romani!
