2015 Blancpain Endurance Series - Monza Bronze Test
The first race of 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series is going to be held on famous Autodromo Nazionale Monza in Italy from 10th to 12th of April. The whole events consists of two free practice sessions, pre qualifying and qualifying session and main race which will be held on 12th of April starting at 14:30 CET. After the very interesting Blancpain Sprint Series weekend last week at Nogaro, France, the Endurance Series is going to be great since the grid is bigger (up to 59 cars), the drivers are eager to race and the weather is fantastic.
The so-called “Bronze Test“ was the first track action of the Monza weekend of the Blancpain Endurance Series. It was an incident free session, which gave the Bronze drivers the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the track and their cars. It was held Saturday morning and it was dominated by Ferrari 458 Italia GT3, possibly because home field advantage. After the 22 laps, the fastest car was 458 Italia GT3 driven by Fabio Mancini, Andrey Birzhin and Rino Mastronardi from Glorax Racing team with the time of 1:48.069. Interestingly, in the first 15 fastest cars on Bronze test, 10 of them were Ferraris 458 Italia GT3. This suggests that Ferrari is going to fastest during the race but this is only the free practice session and not all cars are entered so we can not give any predictions at this moment. However, the Ferrari fans will surely be very happy if the 458 Italia GT3 will win in Italy.
Will will see what are the results of the second free session later today, but since the all teams are eager to race, the Ferrari of the Glorax Racing team will be attacked by all other teams and drivers.
