The third round of the newly formed EuroV8 Series is being held at the Mugello Circuit. Audi Sport Italia is on site fielding three Audi RS 5 quattro cars.
The Audi Italia official dealer team performed very well last time at Vallelunga. Race 2 in the Rome circuit will be remembred for the all in-house Audi threeway battle for the lead. The three Audi RS 5 quattro cars are driven by Thomas Kostka, Davide Stancheris and Ermanno Dionisio.
In the qualifying session this afternoon all three Audis made it into the Top 10. Race 2 winner at Vallelunga, Thomas Kostka qualified fourth with his #1 Audi RS 5 quattro. His team-mate Davide Stancheris was right behind in fifth place with the #2 Audi. Ermanno Dionisio with the #3 Audi ended in eighth place.
The three Audi drivers will have to battle hard tomorrow against their rivals from BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Chevrolet.
Up ahead it was an all BMW M3 affair. BMW Team Dinamic scored a 1-2 in qualifying with Max Mugelli taking pole position ahead of team-mate Maurizio Copetti.
The two races are set for tomorrow. We wish the best of luck to Audi Sport Italia and their three drivers.
