Spa Classic 2011 - Trofeo Nastro Rosso

27-29 May 2011
Spa Classic 2011 - Trofeo Nastro Rosso
01/06/2011 -

After the half-failure of Navarra, the category purposely created for the cars that were protagonists in the Shell Historic Challenge, has newly offered a first class show as it happened last year at Le Castellet. In paddocks it was possible to see again the ISO A3C and the Bizzarrini 5300 GT, one beside the other, together with the Maserati Birdcage, a good number of Ferraris 250 Europa and 275 GTB versions, the Istotta Rivalta IR300 and above all a very beauty and rare Ferrari 250 Europa Gt with a V12 “corto”, hidden under its bonnet, engine designed by Gioacchino Colombo. On practice the Birdcage took Pole position but on the third lap was forced to retire, leaving Gaye in his Ferrari 250G, Francioni, the Swiss banker, with his ISO A3C and Elrich in the Bizzarrini to fight for the win. The latter was obliged to slow down due to an engine problem, Francioni regained the lead but a few laps from the end he spun off coming out of Les Combes, allowing Gaye to gain an unexpected victory, while duo Singleton-Franklin gained the lowest place of podium.The second race was rather monotonous with Gaye who limited to control Elrich in the first laps so as to fly to his second success of the weekend. Third place was gained by Gijzen with Ferrari 275 GTB, the winner of a hard duel with Ellerbrock in Alfa T2.
