Second place in GT4 class for Nova Race drivers at hard-fought Barcelona 24 Hours

Matteo Cressoni, Enrico Garbelli, Henri Kauppi and Luca Magnoni also claim 24th overall spot

Nearly three months removed from the journey at the famed Sarthe venue hosting a European Le Mans Series round, Nova Race faced another demanding trip last weekend: the Creventic-sanctioned 24 Hours of Barcelona. On the Catalan track, the Correggio, Italy-based team fielded a reliable GT4 Ginetta for Matteo Cressoni, Enrico Garbelli, Henri Kauppi and Luca Magnoni, who finished second in their class as well as 24th overall (as well as the best Italian team) in a high-level field that boasted 48 entries.

The black British sportscar at the start of Saturday morning began with Magnoni at the wheel, and the Varese, Italy-born driver was watchful of his surroundings, unlike the opponents who have largely spiced their opening stints an excess of aggressiveness, as though they had to face a 30-minute wind sprint. Albeit at the end of the first hour the Italian car was not in the first half of the standings, the safe beginning proved soon the appropriate choice and the Italian team started to make up ground. The opponents, both in the outright standings and the GT4 class soon began to feel the early effort had been wasteful, while the solid pace of the #227 Ginetta empowered its drivers to climb back through the ranks.

After ten hours, from the lowly thirty-seventh position at the end of the first hour they had soared to the eighteenth place overall -- and the third among GT4 cars. An hour later, in the dark, the Nova Race drivers' moved up to seventeenth overall and second in GT4. Unfortunately at about one o'clock in the morning an off in the gravel forced a lengthy pit stop needed for the crew to replace a damaged hub: the lost time made the Italian team's car slip to the 24.th place of the overall classification and the third of the GT4, a lap behind to the lone Mercedes AMG entered in Spain. However, the pro of the pack -- Cressoni worked overtime -- and at the finish line the Correggio, Italy-tuned Ginetta ended four laps ahead of the three-pointed star rival car, as the win went to a Spanish Ginetta.
