GT Italiano: Argentina’s Manuel Urcera took race 1

After qualifying second, the Urcera-Di Amato pair received a one-place penalty for an incident in training and had to start third in the initial race. The native of San Antonio Oeste, Río Negro, was in charge of starting the actions and in a neat beginning he maintained his position. Consumed the first 10 minutes, Urcera received pressure from Timo Glock and was also close to the guard, Matteo Greco, while forward Kikko Galbiati scored the pulse. The Rionegrin escaped the onslaught of Glock and with 24 minutes to go he entered the pits to cede the Ferrari to Di Amato, who returned to the track in sixth place. Quickly, the Italian benefited from the entry of other rivals to meet the mandatory stop and rose to fourth place. Di Amato then began to fight with Paul Meijer, Galbiati’s teammate, and snatched second place 10 minutes from the end. Then he went “on the hunt” for another Italian, Francesco Guerra (Honda), whom he surpassed with five minutes left. From there Urcera’s partner was solid to the checkered flag. The Galbiati-Meijer duo arrived in second place and Greco-Guerra completed the podium. In the championship, Timo Glock and Jens Klingmann march as leaders, with 35 points, seconded by Galbiati with 34 and Di Amato and Urcera are third, with 32.La activity of the Italian GT in Misano will continue tomorrow with the second final: Urcera-Di Amato will start in third position.
