Report: Race 2 Hockenheim
April 28, 2019

In front of DTM driver Timo Glock the BOSS GP stars showed a lot of overtaking action in the second race. Ingo Gerstl (OPEN) and Andreas Fiedler (FORMULA) win again.

The flying start to the second BOSS GP race of the year went off without a hitch. Andreas Fiedler (DEU, Fiedler Racing) was repeatedly the one who was able to take the lead in the FORMULA class in the initial phase. At the flying start he snatched Salvatore de Plano (ITA, Top Speed) and Alessandro Bracalente (ITA, Speed Center), the man on FORMULA pole position.

Bracalente and De Plano were able to catch up again after a few laps and put Fiedler under increasing pressure. But the winner of the first race made no mistakes. After eight laps Fiedler was again flagged as class winner. Thus, the runner-up of 2018 is also the first leader of the standings in FORMULA. Rookie Bracalente and De Plano were among the winner on the podium. This meant that De Plano were able to take home a trophy after the penalty in the first run.

Start for race 2: Gerstl leads the field in his Toro Rosso into turn 1

Marco Ghiotto (ITA, Scuderia Palladio) could just prevent a spin in lap 1. Although he lost a few places at first, in a courageous duel with Philippe Haezebrouck (FRA, Inter Europol) for 4th place he finally kept his nose in front.

Team mates Armando Mangini and Gianluca Ripoli (both ITA, MM International) duelled throughout the race. The better end belonged to team boss Mangini (6th).

OPEN podium: f.l. ‘Piter’, special guest Mario and Ingo Gerstl

In the OPEN class Ingo Gerstl (AUT, Top Speed) in the V10 Toro Rosso won. ‘Piter’ (FRA, Ray-Ban) once again stood on the podium next to Gerstl. For the Frenchman these were the first podium places of his BOSS GP career.

The Sound of Speed will be performed next time from 23rd to 25th May, then the BOSS GP will race at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.
