Super Trofeo: Andrea Amici wins both races at Paul Ricard
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo was at Paul Ricard for rounds five and six of the 2012 European series. Both victories went to Andrea Amici.
Andrea Amici won the first race of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo weekend at Paul Ricard. The Autocarrozzeria Imperiale S.R.L. driver started the race from third on the grid in an eventful race.
Pole sitter Adrian Zaugg had a 15 second lead over Amici after the pit stops. A frantic final was what followed. Zaugg was given a track limit warning, followed by the message that he was under investigation for cutting turns 8 and 9. Shortly after that message, Zaugg went off, due to suspected brake issues. Despite exiting the car unaided, he was taken to the nearby La Ciotat Hospital, suffering from suspected heat exhaustion, for precautionary checks.
With Zaugg now out of the race, it was Amici who inherited the lead and the Autocarrozzeria Imperiale S.R.L. driver went on to win the fifth race of the season. Geraci finished in second place overall in front of Leimer.
On Sunday Andrea Amici went on to win the second race of the weekend at Paul Ricard under a grey sky. After his accident and a precautionary visit to the nearby hospital, Adrian Zaugg was ruled out of the second race of the weekend with a sore neck. Enjalbert finished just over a second behind in second place behind Amici.
