After Massimo Roccoli’s second fantastic victory yesterday in the fifth race of the CIV, Italian Supersport Speed Championship, today the Rosso Corsa team rider was back on track for the sixth race of the championship.
As yesterday, based on the seventh place obtained in qualifying, the championship leader started from the second row, while his team mate Alessandro Arcangeli, who yesterday was unfortunately the victim of a crash, started from the seventh. The race took place on a warm and sunny day, over 12 laps. In the first lap due to a crash in one of the first corners, which involved three drivers, the Race Direction interrupted the race with the red flag. New starting procedure for a confirmed 12 laps race.
The six times Italian Champion took a very good start and took the second position at the end of the first lap, but already in the second one he took the lead and remained there until the seventh lap. Once overtaken Roccoli controlled the race, but he couldn’t avoid Gabellini’s escape who accumulated a small advantage. Massimo was good at staying in the lead of the group of the immediate pursuers and crossed the finish line in second position.
It’s the sixth consecutive podium for Roccoli who occupies the first position in the championship standings with 126 points.
Unlucky the test of Arcangeli crashed during the first lap, without having the chance to resume the race.
The next appointment with the CIV Supersport is scheduled at the Misano World Circuit over the weekend of 27 and 28 July.
