Tabacchi poised to win at first attempt

18 October 2019

At the head of the standings of the Trofeo Pirelli Am of the Ferrari Challenge Europe lies Emanuele Maria Tabacchi (Rossocorsa), dominating with 179 points earned thanks to 5 victories and numerous podium places. Undoubted the triumph in the single-event in Le Mans figures heavily, with the Italian driver collecting 30 points, due to the increased score.

The debut for Tabacchi in his first Ferrari Challenge season was certainly spectacular: at the season opener in Bahrain the driver almost made it a full house, with 2 wins, 2 fastest laps and a pole position (with just the fastest time lacking in Race-2). In the second event in Valencia, he made it onto the podium in both of the races, twice taking runner-up spot as well as taking the fastest lap on the second Spanish race to win a further point.

Another win was added in Germany, on the Nuerburgring track, in Race-2, in addition to a third place, 1 pole position and 2 fastest laps. At Imola, the penultimate event of 2019, Tabacchi consolidated his first place thanks to a victory in Race-2 and a third place in Race-1.
