International GT Open in Monza: Autorlando-sport does not collect as hoped

Seventh round for the International GT Open 2010 at Monza circuit, Autorlando-sport does not go beyond fifth place in Race 1 and fourth place in race 2 with Roda / Lietz; Gruber / Deverikos rather close with two sixth places. In Race1 Lietz started tenth and Gruber eighteenth. Both started well, maintaining their positions. Lietz unfortunately is unable to show the usual superlative race and gets into the pits for the driver change after only one overtaking. The same goes for Gruber, leaving the steering to Deverikos sixth of his class. Roda comes out of the box and try to maintain the fifth position but is remounted by Pilet. Under the chequered flag he is sixth overall and fifth in class. Deverikos is fourth but suffers a puncture and stopped in the pits to change tires. During the pit exit he crosses the white line that runs parallel to the straight line: the penalty is immediate and takes the form of a drive-through. He will end sixth in his class. The winners are Giammaria / Toccacelo, followed by Barba / Kaffer and Peter / Bronizewsky.

In race2 Roda starts eleventh and Deverikos thirteenth. In the chaos of the start Deverikos cut the first chicane and was forced to slow down and return the positions he gained. Meanwhile Roda, author of a great start, gained two positions. Deverikos, sixth, is unable to gain positions and Roda maintains ninth place. After the driver change Gruber was third, closely followed by Lanceri. He holds on for two laps then, due to engine problem, he is overtaken. A few more laps and arrives Dayraut. The two cars begin a long duel that leads them to cut the second chicane, for car number 65 from Autorlando-Sport is the second time and then the penalty is immediate: to the race time is added the time that takes a drive through and this costs the loss of another position: even in this race, the Porsche GT3 R finished sixth.
Meanwhile Lietz, seventh out of the pits, starts dueling with Frezza. The fight slows them down and causes them to be reached by Guerrero. The Aston Martin overtakes the Ferrari and Porsche and earns the fourth place overall, while Lietz can only overtake Frezza and pass under the checquered flag in fifth place. The ranking is fourth thanks to a penalty of twenty seconds imposed on Guerrero. Narac / Pilet win, Giammaria / Toccacelo are second and third Mullen / Christodolou.

The latest rankings see Barba / Kaffer in leading with 12 points ahead of Narac / Pilet, followed by Giammaria / Toccacelo separated by 3 points, fourth Roda / Lietz separated by another 12. In the GTS class in the lead is Dayrut with 8 points ahead of Livio / Bontempelli, 10 onFrezza / Couceiro and 30 on Gruber / Deverikos.

As is evident, both titles will be awarded Sunday, October 31st in Barcelona circuit.

International GT Open Magny-Cours

International GT Open Magny-Cours: finally Autorlando-Sport gets the first victory!

Fifth round for the International GT Open 2010 at the French circuit of Magny-Cours, AutorlandoSport won race 2 with Roda / Lietz and now the gap from the top of the drivers’ championship is only 8 points. In the GT3 class Gruber / Deverikos climb onto the lowest step of the podium and keep the 3rd place in the drivers’ standings.

In race 1 Roda starts 12th and Gruber 13th. Both started well, keeping the position, then Roda begins a thrilling comeback that led him to overcome 6 cars. Meanwhile Gruber, 3rd in his class, is victim of a crash caused by Gene and is forced to retire. When Roda leaves the car to Lietz, the Austrian is, due to the handicap of 15 s, in eighth position. Lap after lap, Richard is always the fastest on the track and reaches the fourth position, a position from which to see the chequered flag. Narac and Pilet win, followed by the Ferraris driver by Giammaria / Toccacelo and Barba / Kaffer. In race2 the front row has only Porsche, with Lietz on pole beside Pilet, while Deverikos is 9 th.

Excellent start by Autorlando-Sport’s Porsche which, hammering a fast lap after another, leaves Pilet behind of 5s. Meanwhile Deverikos, 3rd in his class, is in brawl with Guerrero but he can not overtake.

After the driver change window thanks to the lower handicap Roda’s advantage over Narac is of 15s and Gruber is 2nd. Roda was as fast as Narac so he doesn’t lose a thousandth of second, while the more experienced Ortelli recovers both Gruber and Bamford and overtakes them, thus he wins the race. So the podium sees Roda / Lietz followed by Narac / Pilet and Barba / Kaffer, while in the GT3 class win Dayrut / Ortelli followed by Bamford / Griffin and Gruber / Deverikos.

The latest rankings give Barba / Kaffer lead with eight points ahead Roda / Lietz, 22 on Narac / Pilet and 35 on Giammaria / Toccacelo, while in the GT3 class Dayrut / Ortelli lead with 2 points ahead Frezza / Couceiro , 15 on Gruber / Deverikos and 18 on Livio / Bontempelli. As you can see, the fight for victory is still very close in both classes and Autorlando-Sport is featured on both fronts.

Press release 05/2010

Autorlando’s win in race 1 with the new GT3 R good start in Super Gt as well tank to Roda / Lietz in un in a not so easy week end race.

42 cars launched the 2010 International GT Open Championship at the Ricardo Tormo circuit, unfortunately under bad weather conditions. The Pedrengo based team has been lining up since Wednesday two 997 GT3 RSR for the GT2/Super GT class (driven by Lietz/ Roda and Moro/Kaufmann) plus a brand new 997 GT3 R for the GT3 class/GTS, driven by Deverikos and Gruber. After a difficult start, caused by the rainy conditions, the crews finally got a good setup for the wet track.
First qualifying session starts on Saturday morning ends with Deverikos in 8th absolute position (4th of his class), while Roda and Moro end in 20th position and 22nd position. Same end for the second qualifying afternoon session, still slippery and wet: Lietz classified 14th , Gruber 17th and Kaufmann 18th .
Great race 1 performance for the Italian team: Roda and Lietz end their race in third position, while the beginner GT3 R obtains a great win droven by Dimitris Deverikos and Thomas Gruber. Unfortunately, the car #3 driven by Moro and Kaufmann ends its race in 25th position, after a great run of Wolfgang Kaufmann. Sunday schedule is a bit different for this event: GTS class and Super GT class are divided in two different races.
The first one, valid for the GTS class, is once again influenced by a strong rain and difficult tarmac conditions. The GT3 R spun right round during the third lap, but can finally get 5 position and finish second in the overall GTS standing of this first round, with 10 points gained in this weekend. In race 2, Richard Lietz gains 5 places from the 8th position. On the other side Kaufmann drove a very good lap sequence till the 10th position, but unfortunately his team mate Luca Moro gave up when there are 3 laps to go.
