SPA, July 29th – The AF Corse Ferrari #52 driven by Niek Hommerson, Louis Machiels, Andrea Bertolini and Alessandro Pier Guidi won the “24 Hours of Spa” (Pro Am category). Ferrari, AF Corse and its drivers have achieved another milestone in the motorsport world thanks to the victory at Spa, a few weeks later of the Le Mans 24 Hours triumph (GTE Pro category with Fisichella, Bruni and Vilander on 458 GT2).

The Ferrari #52 ran in the top position from the third hour to the end of the endurance challenge and gained an historical landmark in a legendary race.

From the 13th to the 22nd hour, three AF Corse Ferrari fought for the supremacy. One after the other, the 458 #52, the 458 #51 and the 458 #50 were leading the Pro Am standing. On the 458 #51 there were Gaetano Ardagna, Giuseppe Cirò, Daniel Brown, Toni Vilander and the crew of the 458 #50 was composed by Enzo Ide, Jack Gerber, Marco Cioci, Raffaele Giammaria.

In the 13th hour, Ide-Gerber-Cioci-Giammaria were the leaders of the Pro Am but they lost minutes and laps due to a technical problem during the 14th hours (their final position is the 17th). Up till this moment, three AF Corse Ferrari were on a potential podium thanks to the #50 followed by the #51 and #52. The 458 #51 involved in accident in the 23rd hour and broke the radiator. A sad end for the Pro Am class leaders of some race’s parts (they ended 14th).

The great perfomance is the outcome also for the AF Corse Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 #49 with Howard Blank, Yannick Mallegol, Jean Marc Bachelier and Francois Perrodo. They drove with accuracy and constancy and took the chequered flag in 11th position of the Pro Am category.
