Audi RS5 complete domination with double victories at Vallelunga


By Tarek Ramchani

This was a great weekend for Audi at Vallelunga. The German brand totally dominated the entire weekend. Pole position and double race wins.

Johan Kristoffersson was the true hero at the seventh round of the International Superstars Series. A great pole positon yesterday and two outstanding and undisputed race wins today. Most importantly Kristoffersson took the lead of the series point standings from rival Vitantonio Liuzzi in his Mercedes-Benz with two round to go.

Kristoffersson may have dominated the weekend but young Thomas Schöffler from Germany also did well today. A strong second place finish in race 1 and a fine fourth in race for the MTM driver. It was an unlucky weekend for Gianni Morbidelli as the double Superstars Series champion had a DNF in the first race. In race two the Audi Sport Italia came home in sixth place, not bad starting from far behind in a very competitive field.

Overall it was another dream weekend for the Audi squad. After the domination of Spa-Francorchamps, at Vallelunga the Audi RS5 quattro again proved to be one of the best in the field, if not the best.
