Beretta wins race-2 in the first round of the International GT Open at Paul Ricard and is the leader of the championship thanks to an excellent job done with the team, the Vincenzo Sospiri Racing and his team mate Frederik Schandorff.
Michele made his debut in the best way in the opening race of the Gt Open in France with a fantastic victory in race-2, and now he is leader of the championship and together with his team mate, Schandorff, are in the list of candidates for the title.
From the first qualifying sessions the Lambo number 63 was among the best and it was qualified by Schandorff in the ninth place.
In race-1 Michele and his team mate were very careful, they made no mistake crossed the finish line with a good fifth place that allowed them to score points for the ranking.

In the second qualifying Michele placed his Hurracan in the third row, with the fifth time, and led the first phase of the race improving his performance, entering the podium area.
In the second part of the race Schandorff gained the lead and took a well-deserved victory that launched the Sospiri Racing’s duo at the top of the provisional standings.

Although satisfied with the great success, Michele doesn’t hide some doubts about the choices of the Balance Of Performance (BOP) which particularly penalize Lamborghini.
“I have a mix of contrasting feelings. Getting on the top of the podium is always is a great satisfaction, but it is clear that we are penalized by the championship BOP and we suffer a huge difference in speed from Bentley, Honda and Mercedes. After the results of race-1, some of our rivals had time penalties that allowed us to be back in play and we took advantage in the best way of the situation.”
After qualifying the car in fifth position, you chose to start with used tires. In this way your team-mate was able to make the most of the new tires in the second phase of the race.
“In qualifying I could have done better than fifth place, but the wet track made difficult to make the most of the tires. I started attacking with used tires and it was no easy to overtake such fast rivals on the straight. When Frederik entered he was able to take advantage of the new tires we had left for the second stint and this showed to be a good strategy. I am happy because, despite the unfavourable situation, we leave Paul Ricard with a win and the first place in the championship and I hope that something can change in the next races.”
