Petri Corse Wins Super Trofeo Series

Although two weeks ago the Reiter Engineering team was catching up to Petri Corse, despite the close competition, Fabio Babini and Claudio Rossetto managed to secure all three titles (Teams, Pro and Pro-Am drivers) of the 2009 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo season at Paul Ricard HTTT, France, on October 4, 2009.

Italian team Petri Corse clinched three podium finishes during the final race weekend of the season, and managed a clean sweep, with Reiter Engineering as its closest rival, finishing second in all categories.

“To be the first Super Trofeo Champions is fantastic for Rossetto and me,” said Babini. “This is a great result for Petri Corse, and the series has been excellent thanks to Lamborghini and Pirelli…I think we will be celebrating with the team!”

“I’m very very happy!”
added Rossetto. “The series has been very exciting. I don’t think that I was physically fit enough at the start of the season, but I have improved a lot during the year.”

“I’m very happy with the season. Winning the last race was very important but difficult after Barcelona, as we felt a lot of pressure. We will definitely be back next season…with four cars,”
said Simone Petri, Team Manager of Petri Corse.

“We’ve had a fantastic season with some extremely close racing,” said Manfred Fitzgerald, Director of Brand and Design at Lamborghini. “The race format has definitely been a success, bringing the title chase right to the last race weekend. We are in discussions for next year’s calendar, and have already received strong interest, so the competition will only get tougher!”
