Eric Brigliadori inherits pole position for TCR Italy’s opener
18 July 2020
On his maiden appearance in the TCR Italy championship, Eric Brigliadori won the pole position for the season’s opening race at Mugello. The BF Motorsport youngster drove his Audi RS 3 LMS to clock a lap of 1:57.276 that was actually the second fastest of the session. However, Franco Girolami who had set the best time of 1:56.850 in his MM Motorsport Honda Civic, had his effort disallowed for not respecting the yellow flags. The Argentine’s second-best time of 1:57.847 placed him fourth on the grid for this afternoon’s Race 1.
Marco Pellegrini’s Target Competition Hyundai i30 N and Salvatore Tavano’s Scuderia Girasole CUPRA Leon Competición were moved up into second and third respectively, while Damiano Reduzzi completed the top-five in his Hyundai.
With cars of four different brands starting from the first two rows of the grid, a close battle is expected for victory in Race 1 that will start at 18:40 local time (CEST) and will be streamed live at www.tcr-series.com.
