20.10.2020 – Another strong performance has characterized Imperiale Racing’s weekend in Monza at the third round of the Italian GT Sprint 2020 Championship. The Mirandola-based team confirmed the high value of its performance with Giovanni Venturini (ITA) and Kikko Galbiati (ITA) in the #32 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo, but the epilogue of race two did not allow the team to collect what it would have deserved on track.
Following an accurate setup work, Venturini has been shining in the first, tight, qualifying session posting the sixth quickest time (1:48.232s). Galbiati repeated this performance in the second session posting an as positive 1:48.347s that qualified the #32 Huracán in sixth place again.
In race one Venturini got a perfect getaway and recovered up to P3 in the first lap. The driver from Vicenza kept a very good rhythm for the whole first stint and dived into the pits for the driver’s change just after the half point of the race. After the pitstop, Galbiati rejoined a little bit lower down the field but recovered well up to P4 thanks to a strong race pace that allowed him to fend off the rivals behind. Imperiale Racing’s driver crossed, therefore, the finish line in P4 and secured some additional important points for the championship.
Galbiati started race two with great grit, but he was flawlessly involved in a contact with a rival at the second of the Lesmo corners and was forced into the barriers, which ended Imperiale Racing’s race.
Luca Del Grosso (Imperiale Racing – Team Manager):
“I would like to start thanking the drivers and the team. They did a great job also in Monza, a race track where we knew things could have been tougher than elsewhere, but Giovanni and Kikko had a great feeling with the #32 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo since the word go. The setup was perfect and the potential, both in terms of speed and pace, was there. In race one, Giovanni started very well and Kikko, later on, defended himself wisely. I am certain that, considering the final with the safety car and sprint to the line, we could have put in a very exciting spectacle”.

Imperiale Racing will get back on track for the closing round of the Sprint series in Vallelunga on December 4-6th.
