ALMS, Laguna Seca: Ferrari Important Points for Risi Competizione

By Auto News Log • May 24th, 2010

Maranello – After a great showing from the Brazilian Jaime Melo in Friday’s qualifying was rewarded with pole position, the car he shared with Gianmaria Bruni finished the GT category of the race in fourth place, at the spectacular Laguna Seca circuit, which hosted the third round of the American Le Mans Series. Fifth place went to the Extreme Speed Motorsports F430 GT2, driven by Scott Sharp and Joannes van Overbeek, which had set the second fastest time in class during qualifying.

The Bruni-Melo car was caught up in traffic caused by one of the prototype cars on lap fifteen and also lost a few places after tangling with another car, in a race affected by strong winds and which was hard fought all the way to the chequered flag. The final reward was two important points in the championship battle. The three podium positions went to the winning Porsche 911 of Patrick Long-Jorg Bergmeister, followed by the BMW M3 of Dirk Muller-Joey Hand and the Chevrolet Corvette of Olivier Beretta-Oliver Gavin. Risi Competition leaves Laguna Seca in third place in the championship, heading into the next round of the prestigious series, scheduled for 11 July at Miller Motorsports Park, in Utah.
