Tresor Competition has a satisfactory double weekend at Brands Hatch and Misano

May 6, 2024
05.05.2024 - Satisfaction for Tresor Competition at the end of an intense double race weekend which saw the Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II engaged both at Brands Hatch (GB) in the first round of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Sprint Cup and at Misano (ITA) for the inaugural event of the Italian Gran Turismo Sprint Championship 2024.

At the British circuit, two Pro teams from Tresor Attempto Racing took to the track. They were composed of Ricardo Feller (CH) and Alex Aka (GER) with the #99 car in Orange 1 livery, and Lorenzo Ferrari (ITA) with Christopher Haase (GER) on #88 in San Lorenzo livery. At Misano, the colours of Tresor Audi Sport Italia were represented by Pietro Delli Guanti (ITA) and Rocco Mazzola (ITA), starting with number #12, and Leonardo Moncini (ITA) and Andrea Cola (ITA) racing with car #99.

At Brands Hatch, Tresor Competition narrowly missed the podium twice. After work done during practice and pre-qualifying sessions, Haase brought #88 to seventh place in Q1 (1'23.183s) with Aka tenth in #99 (1'23.251s). In Q2, Ferrari posted the twelfth-best time with #88 in 1'23.021s, while Feller stopped the clocks at 1'22.746s securing the fifth position on the grid with #99.

Noteworthy race one for #99 with Aka first and then Feller who, thanks to their pace and perfect timing for the pit stop, climbed up to fourth place securing important points and narrowly missing the podium. The race for #88 was more difficult as it had also managed to climb up to the top-5, showing a very promising pace, but finished seventeenth following an unfortunate team contact incident.

In race two, another fourth position came from Feller and Aka with #99, which gained one position replicating the result of the first challenge. A more challenging race was run by #88 which, despite the excellent work of the drivers, finished outside the top fifteen again.

At Misano, Tresor Audi Sport Italia clinched the first podium of the season at the end of race two. In qualifying, Delli Guanti secured the fourth best performance with #12 (1:31.898s) while Cola started the season with twelfth place in #99 (1:32.599s). In Q2, Mazzola posted the fifth-best time in 1:31.827s, while Moncini on #99 finished with the seventh performance in 1:32.024s.

Consistent performance for #12 in race one: the crew started the season with a very close fourth place to the podium. This result confirmed the value of the crew allowing Delli Guanti and Mazzola to collect important points. On #99, Cola and Moncini managed to climb five positions and crossed the finish line in seventh place.

In race two, the performance of Delli Guanti and Mazzola translated into a splendid second place, allowing Tresor Audi Sport Italia to leave Misano with the first podium of the season. However, a technical issue prevented Cola and Moncini from achieving an equally prestigious result with #99.

Ferdinando Geri, Team Principal Tresor Attempto Racing:
"It was a challenging and intense weekend, but full of satisfaction. Our team and the drivers on track have done an excellent job both at Brands Hatch and Misano, and we can say we are satisfied with what we have achieved. Perhaps we deserved something more, but I believe this can be a great start to the championship that confirms our worth and allows us to approach the next events with great determination”.
