There is a bit of disappointment in the Ombra Racing team and its drivers Michele Beretta, Andrea Piccini and Stefano Gattuso at the end of the last Blancpain Endurance Cup event in Barcelona. On the Circuit de Catalunya, the whole italian team has failed the target closing the season without points.
A difficult qualifying has relegated the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 #12 to the bottom of the grid and despite a good race, Beretta, Piccini and Gattuso failed to go beyond the 23rd position, far from the point where they were pointing.

Andrea Piccini: “Surely not the result we expected on the eve. As has often happened this year, we have been not able to manage the new tyres in qualify found ourselves in the back of the grid. The race was good and, apart few small mistakes, we had a good pace that allowed us to get some places. Unfortunately in the championship we have got less than expected; I think that for what we have seen during the season we would have deserved to get at least a few points.

For Michele Beretta however, archived the weekend in Barcelona, ​​it is already time to think about the last event of the Italian GT Championship: the young italian driver, together with his team mate Alex Frassineti and Ombra Racing, is set to be on top at Mugello. After two wins in Imola and Vallelunga, the Beretta-Frassineti duo arrives in Tuscany with only 7 points far from the leader.

Michele Beretta: “Barcelona did not go as we hoped and we have struggled a lot in all sessions; it was probably the toughest weekend of the season. Now there is Mugello, so we have to focus on 110% on this title race: it will not be easy. Audi and Ferrari – as well as the other Lamborghini – are very competitive and the battle is tight, as seen in previous rounds. We will have 15 “penalty penalty times at the pit stop and this will not help us, we will have to be more competitive than we did last July to be in front of everyone. I and Alex will do our best to play it until the last meter.
