EURO SERIES BY NOVA RACE GRAND FINALE HOSTED AT MUGELLO

EURO SERIES BY NOVA RACE GRAND FINALE HOSTED AT MUGELLO Euro Series by Nova Race comes this weekend to the sixth and last round of the 2015 calendar as it lands at the Mugello circuit, following the Paul Ricard, Slovakiaring, Red Bull Ring, Spa-Francorchamps and Misano races.

In Italy there will be two titles to be still assigned. Starting from the Overall standings led by Oliver Freymouth. The German driver is already the ES+ and Over 50 champion after having scored two wins in France and Austria with the Renault Mégane Trophy lined up by AKF Motorsport.

The Scandinavian duo Marko Helistekangas and Fredrik Blomstedt, Under 25 champion and a victory under their belt in Austria at the wheel of a Ginetta G50 racecar, pay 28-point gap. Luca Magnoni, with another Ginetta G50 particularly consistent during this year and twice on the podium in the recent round at Misano, and 17-year-old Bulgarian Pavel Lefterov - who made his debut in Belgium at the wheel of a Lotus Evora and claimed four wins in a row, have still some hope. More uncertain is the result in the ES class topped by Blomstedt-Helistekangas, with Luca Magnoni second, 14 points behind.

To make more exciting the Mugello round will be some interesting newcomers, such as Gianluca Carboni, 2012 Endurance Iber Trophy Super GT champion, with a big experience in different categories, who will make his debut with a Ginetta G50. Same car for Andrea Marchesini, who raced for a long time in the Fun Cup championship with the Nova Race team, and Scot Kieran Gallagher, coming from BTCC. Two other newcomers are the reigning Coppa Italia champion Enrico Bettera and Claudio Formenti, sharing a Seat Leon Cup Racer.

Luca Lorenzini and Stefano Stefanelli will share a Ginetta G50. Same car for Gianpiero Cristoni, Roberto Gentili and Mark Speakerwas.The two 45-minute free practice will be held on Friday, followed by the two 15-minute qualifying sessions at 5.05 and 5.25 om. The first out of two 50-minute races will start on Saturday at 1 pm. Race 2 is scheduled on Sunday at 9.50 am.
