Italian GT: Dindo Capello and Audi Sport Italia victorious in Misano race 1

By Tarek Ramchani

A great and emotional race win today for Audi Sport Italia at Misano. The official Audi Italia dealer team victorious in the first race of the 2014 Italian GT Championship.

After a very hard 2013 season, Audi Sport Italia is showing great performances at Misano this weekend.
Dindo Capello and team-mate Zonzini Emanuele won the opening event with their #5 Audi R8 LMS ultra. The two drivers started from positin six and charged back to take the race lead and win after great battles on track with some Ferrari 458 GT3s.

Their team-mates Marco Mapelli and Thomas Schoffler driving the #6 Audi R8 LMS ultra were unlucky. After taking a sensational pole position in qualifying  earlier today the two drivers finished in eighth place.

Race 2 is set for tomorrow. We wish good luck to Audi Sport Italia and their drivers.
