Hey guys! Hope you all had a good weekend! It was a mixed one for us in the Italian GT Championship at Autodromo Vallelunga. It was my first time at the track, so in practice and qualifying I focused on getting to grips with it.

Race one was the low point of the weekend, after a shunt on lap 20. The Audi Sport Italia team did a great job to rebuild the car for Sunday’s race, which I started from fifth.

During my stint I battled with the race one-winning Ferrari for places in the top four, before handing over to my team-mate, Vittorio Ghirelli. He did a great job on his home track to give us a second place finish just 2.3 seconds behind the winner.

Big thanks to Audi Sport Italia for their efforts this weekend, the podium would have been impossible without the hard work. Not very long to wait until my next race, as I’ll be heading to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for the finale of the Blancpain GT Series this weekend.
