Singing in the Rain; Bucharest May 20th, 2007

Andrea Bertolini and Andrea Piccini came to Romania determined to make up for their poor start to the season before their home race in Monza, it was a case of Mission Accomplished today ! In wet conditions on the street circuit, the nr 11 Scuderia Playteam Sarafree Maserati MC 12 finished 39 seconds ahead of the nr 7 All-Inkl.com Lamborghini Murciélago  and a minute ahead of the nr 2 Vitaphone Maserati of Montanari and Ramos.  Wendlinger and Sharp, long-time race leaders in the nr 33 Jetalliance Aston Martin DBR9, were fourth, with the Corvette C5R of Kumpen and Longin fifth.   With second today, Bouchut and Mücke have retaken the lead in the GT1 Drivers Championship, while Vitaphone maintained the lead in the Teams points.

With four makes in the top five, the sixth position went to the winning GT2 car, the nr 50 AF Corse Motorola Ferrari 430 GT2 car of Dirk Müller and Toni Vilander, after a majestic performance in the rain gave them their third win of the season, and a commanding lead in the Championship.  They finished ahead of a trio of Porsches, as always comfortable in the rain.  The nr 97 BMS Scuderia Italia Porsche was second, and might have finished higher were it not for a puncture and two penalties. The nr 66 Felbermayr Proton Porsche 996 GT3 was an excellent third for Marc Lieb and Horst Felbermayr Jr - a fine result for the year-old car, which started from the back of the grid, especially for Horst, whose company has been involved in the building of the circuit.

The Belgian Racing Gillet Vertigo finished 11th, after running as high as 6th with an excellent performance in the rain from Bas Leinders and Renaud Kuppens. 

SRT claimed its second consecutive win in the Citation Cup, with its Corvette C5 of Cloet and Vannelet finishing eighth to take the final GT1 point.  Vannelet had a busy weekend as he is also leading the FIA GT3 European Championship with his team-mate Henri Moser.
