Luca Cappellari and Fabrizio Gollin took their first overall win of the season at Monza on Sunday, for although they won the GT class in the Proximus 24 Hours of Spa, they finished behind the N-GT class Freisinger Motorsport Porsche.

Extremely fast all weekend, and qualifying in second place, Gollin took the lead into the first corner, and stayed ahead for all his stint. In the top three for the much of the rest of the race, Gollin retook the lead when the nr 21 Lilian Bryner, Enzo Calderari, Stefano Livio Care Racing Ferrari had to stop for a splash and dash in the closing stages.

"It was a great race and I have to thank our engineer Marco Galuppi who made a wonderful strategy, we finished with only 6 litres in the tank but we didn't have to make a splash and dash," Luca explained. "So we won the fight with Enzo and Lilian, with whom we were fighting for the title. Many congratulations to the team who have done a fantastic job all season. We have got to the finish line in nine races out of ten, and my team-mate Fabrizio was very fast."

This second place also gave Gollin and Cappellari the second place in the Championship behind their teammates Matteo Bobbi and Thomas Biagi, after a close battle with the nr 21's regular drivers Bryner and Calderari.
