Longhi vince e allunga in classifica su Perullo e Bas dopo la vittoria in Gara 1 a Magione

Piero Longhi ha trionfato in Gara 1 di Formula Abarth sul tracciato italiano di magione, dominando dal primo all’ultimo giro. Al secondo posto si è classificato Simone Gatto, mentre al terzo posto è arrivato Renato Papaleo, autore di una bellissima rimonta, culminata con il sorpasso su Antonelli a pochi minuti dal termine delle ostilità.

Subito fuori Perullo e Madeira, con quest’ultimo a tamponare il primo ne giro di formazione, che ha così indotto i commissari di gara a far compiere un altro giro di formazione.

Grande partenza di Piero Longhi, che ha mantenuto la testa della corsa dopo esser scattato dalla pole position, conquistata nelle Qualifiche di ieri. Secondo posto subito perso da Zanasi in favore di, che non è riuscito ad attaccare subito Longhi, scattato troppo bene per essere impensierito da chiunque.

Iacoianni si è girato al terzo giro, rimanendo fermo in traiettoria e costringendo i commissari di gara a mandare in pista la Safety Car per rimuovere la vettura dal tracciato. Longhi ha visto così sfumare il buon vantaggio costruito nei primi chilometri di corsa.

Alla ripartenza Longhi è scattato alla grande, con Antonelli che ha approfittato di una lento restart di Zanasi per cogliere la terza posizione provvisoria.  Gatto intanto è riuscito a rimanere negli scarichi di Longhi, cercando di non lasciarlo andare in fuga sin dai primi giri dopo il rientro della vettura di sicurezza.

Longhi è riuscito a fare la differenza sin da subito, facendo segnare tempi irraggiungibili dai suoi diretti avversari per la vittoria di Gara 1 e a staccare Gatti e Antonelli. Papaleo quarto dopo un attacco deciso a Jorge Bas, con Zanasi quinto. Papaleo è riuscito a cogliere il terzo posto a pochi minuti dal termine della gara, con Antonelli autore di un lungo, fatale in quanto ha perso il podio virtuale.
