Giovesi, Pommer share wins at Monza
Kevin Giovesi and Markus Pommer shared the victories at Monza in the Auto GP round 7-8. The Italian went from pole to win in Race 2. The Eurotech Engineering driver, who started out front thanks to the reverse top-8 grid format, held the lead comfortably and managed to administrate his margin over Virtuosi UK’s Andrea Roda, who scored his best career Auto GP finish after a great start that brought him past Giuseppe Cipriani (Ibiza Racing Team). Pommer finished third for Super Nova.
The German went from pole to victory in Race 1. Pommer had set the fastest lap of the day on Friday and retained the spot at the start, successfully controlling his opponents until the checkered flag. In second place, Tamas Pal Kiss (Zele Racing) recovered well after a complicated qualifying session. The Hungarian opted for an early pit-stop, a strategy that eventually paid off to hand him another valuable result. In third, Michela Cerruti scored her maiden podium finish in the series. Driving the second Super Nova car, she won an exciting duel with Roda to take third place. Michele La Rosa, driving for MLR71 by Eurovova, rounded out the top-5 in front of returning Francesco Dracone (Super Nova). Giovesi scored the 8th place, but paid the price a pit miscue when his left rear got stuck at the tire change, and had to surrender second place.
