Monza – GT Open

One victory for Ferrari and one for BMW, that’s how GT Open’s Monza Round ended.
#47 BMW M6 GT3 of RACE/BMW Team Teo Martin driven by Fran Rueda and Andrés Saravia took victory in the first International GT Open race of the weekend at Monza starting from 12th position, thanks to their incredible pace and a great pitstop strategy during Safety Car. Andrea Montermini in the #11 RS Racing Ferrari pushed as hard as he could to keep Fran Rued behind but the BMW was too fast in a high speed circuit like Monza.
Ferrari and BMW switched their final positions for race 2. This time #51 Luzich Racing Ferrari finished 1st in front of Fran Rueda and Andrés Saravia in the M6.
Making its GT Open debut in Monza, the NSX GT3 looked really good during the race. Developed by Honda Racing Team JAS and driven by Honda factory drivers Esteban Guerrieri and Bertrand Baguette the NSX finished 7th in race 1 and 6th in race 2, not bad for a debut.
Alessandro Mariani, Team Principal of JAS Motorsport, based in Arluno, close to the Monza track, commented:  “We are excited to enter the International GT Open event at Monza, a circuit that is located just one hour from the JAS Motorsport headquarters where the NSX GT3 is assembled. It’s a great opportunity for us to showcase the car to potential customers in Europe and to show them all the qualities that have made it a race winner and title contender in IMSA competition in the USA, and a podium finisher in Blancpain GT Asia. It’s also a chance to race the car on Michelin tyres for the first time and collect useful data, as well as to put two top-level drivers behind the wheel in Bertrand and Esteban, who both performed magnificently at the Spa 24 Hours.”
