Amateur Andrea Solimè claims first career win with Andrea Palma - New Video Available

Misano, May 5, 2013. Yesterday's qualifying session for round three of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo at Misano was a prelude to a captivating first for the series as it raced into the night at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. While Andrea Amici picked up from where he'd left off in Monza by claiming pole, the race delivered a far less anticipated outcome in a thrilling finale in the dark.

While Adrian Zaugg lost out to Amici in the dying minutes of qualifying, the early stages of the race marked a complete reversal with Amici defending strenuously from the efforts of the hard-charging Zaugg. Despite the Italian and the South African driver battling fiercely, they opened up a gap of around 3 seconds per lap in the early stages of the race over the remainder of the field, and by lap five, the Bonaldi driver eventually found his way into the lead, and stretched out a small cushion over Amici which he took to the pit window.
