Italian GT: Audi Sport Italia wants victories at the Mugello

By Tarek Ramchani

The Italian GT Championship will be heading to the Mugello this upcoming weekend, round 4 of the 2015 season. Audi Sport Italia will be on site with a pair of Audi R8 LMS ultras.

The Audi Italia official dealer team performed very well at Imola last time out taking two podiums despite a penalizing Balance of Performance. At the Mugello, Audi Sport Italia will be aiming high and will try to clinch a first victory this year in the Campionato Italiano Gran Turismo.

The #6 Audi R8 LMS ultra will be driven by Rinaldo Capello e di Emanuele Zonzini. At Imola they took a very strong second place in the first race.

Their team-mates Andrea Amici and Marco Mapelli will share the sister #7 Audi R8 LMS ultra. The two drivers took the final spot of the podium in Imola's race 2.

Action will start at the Mugello on Friday with two practice sessions. The two qualifying sessions and race 1 will be held on Saturday. The second race is set for Sunday.
