Missing from their palmares, they finally took it home, the prestigious Trophy won by the drivers of the Belgian team Modave Racing PPS, very active in the world of endurance, with between 35 and 40 races per year. The Italian Damiano Marchesan also runs with them, second only a year ago in Le Mans. But let’s get to the 12 Hours at the Friuli Venezia Giulia International Circuit. The best time in qualifying on Friday, June 15, was set by the French team Cine Cascade’s Skof in front of the Italians of the Sunlife Racing Team (Lignano Circuit) and the Bahrain team, Racing.Bh. The future winners were in 19th position. After two hours of competition, the Italian PFV (Misanino-Misano Adriatico) formation was in command. Note that as many as 12 teams were on the same lap, all without any pit stops. Another Italian team was in command after 4 hours, the Red Race (Fun Race), with one pit stop, along with nine other teams. Second, the French of Kart & Diem, third the Bahrain drivers of Racing.Bh, fourth Modave Racing PPS, which in the middle of the race, after 6 hours, was in command, shadowed at 2”145 by Red Racing.

The situation did not change much after 8 hours. Red Racing followed Modave Racing PPS at 34”791. In third place, Scratch KC, all three with 3 pit stops. 3 other teams followed, each with 4 pit stops: PFV Infinity (Circuit of Pomposa), Team Nutria (Circuit of Pomposa) and Team Karting 58. After 10 hours, Modave Racing PPS fell to sixth but had already made 8 pit stops against the 4 of those who at that moment were led the race (Scratch KC), while Red Racing, PFV Infinity and Team Nutria had made 5. With 6 pit stops, Kart & Diem followed in fifth place. (Teams had to make twelve stops, a compulsory feature of the race.) In the end, Modave Racing PPS went on to win with 24”804 ahead of Red Racing and 28”512 on PFV.
