Rocco pushed the car to every inch of its limit, but was unable to overtake for 1st position but still achieved the fastest lap time in the M235iR so far, a 127.4 and a 2nd place in GT2. GT3 class winner was Daria and in GT4 2nd place was Ali. RMP Competizione had multiple podium finishes this weekend in many classes, and we are proud of our drivers accomplishments.
