The super fast Autodromo Nazionale di Monza is hosting the second round of the 2014 Italian GT Championship this weekend. Audi Sport Italia already performing well with their two Audi R8 LMS ultra cars.

The official Audi Italia dealer team secured a fine pole position in the second qualifying session today. The #5 Audi R8 LMS ultra in the hands of Dindo Capello and Emanuele Zonzini set the best time in the session with a 1:48.068. Their team-mates Marco Mapelli and Thomas Schoeffler with the sister #6 Audi R8 LMS ultra ended in a very strong third.

Audi Sport Italia was strong in the first qualifying session as well. Dindo Capello and Emanuele Zonzini were second right behind a Lamborghini Gallardo FL2 GT3. Marco Mapelli and Thomas Schoeffler qualified eighth for Race 1.

The Audi team dominated the opening round at Misano and was strong in both qualifying sessions today, no doubts they will be among the big favourites to take race wins
