Less than 24 hours for Giovanni Venturini in the last weekend at Monza, second round of Blancpain GT Series and inaugural round in the Endurance Cup. The Italian driver, always part of Lamborghini Squadra Corse with Attempto Racing, found again Marco Mapelli, his teammate in the Sprint Cup, and another Italian driver Luca Filippi. After free practices and pre-qualifying on Saturday, where Venturini had a very good pace, on Sunday Giovanni could neither jump in the car. Filippi, who was driving in Q1, due an issue in the braking zone during second lap at Prima Variante crashed hard into an Audi. Both cars were too damaged to continue the week-end, so the #66 crew wasn’t able to take the race’s start.

“Of course I wasn’t expecting my home race week-end would have been so short. It’s funny because in an endurance race we didn’t spend so much time on track. It’s a shame for the great work that the team has done to prepare this event. As we have seen in the race, Lamborghini had a great potential and I think we could end-up in a good position. Unluckily it’s very difficult to start a championship composed by just 5 rounds with zero points, and that’s for sure complicates things for Silverstone where we need to check our pace in the race”.
