EuroV8 Series: Top 5 in qualifying for Audi Sport Italia at the Mugello

By Tarek Ramchani

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.
