Two podium finishes at the Nuerburgring, fourth race of the FIA World Champion

Double podium finishes for the AF Corse Ferrari 458’s at the “6 Hours of Nuerburgring”, fourth seasonal round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).

In the GTE Am, François Perrodo, Emmanuel Collard and Rui Aguas took the chequered flag with the third place in Ferrari 458 Italia #83.

An electronics problem, in the first hour of the race, compromised the race of the GT world champions Gianmaria Bruni and Toni Vilander. The Ferrari 458 Italia #51 stopped suddenly when Gimmi was in the lead. The world champion was forced to pull off track, but did eventually manage to reach to the pits where his electronics problem was fixed. From then on Bruni and Toni Vilander did their best to pull back and in the end finished with a seventh place.
