Bonaldi gears up for ADAC GT Masters grand final in Hockenheim

The prestigious German GT championship is ending its season in Hockenheim and Bonaldi Motorsport has a difficult task after a season in which good performances were shown but adequate results did not follow.

Bonaldi has its last chance to end the difficult German GT championship on a high, with a return to the good results the yellow Huracan GT3 achieved earlier in the season. This would be the right successful completion of after the hard work done by the team and the basis for the next seasons planning. Emanuele Zonzini, the driver from San Marino, together with Florian Spengler, the German driver, are looking forward to competing on this technical German racetrack.

Situated in the region of Baden-Wurttemberg, north of Stuttgart, Hockenheim was built in 1932 and hosted 35 editions of the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Germany. Its original design, which was characterised by extreme speed, was considerably modified over the years. In 1964 the works for the section called “Motodrom”, characterised by slow curves, and the finish line area started. During the following years, two chicanes were introduced to interrupt the long straights: the first one was dedicated to the Scottish Champion, Jim Clark, who died there in 1968. In 2002 the racetrack was totally redesigned: the high speed section was drastically reduced while new stands and various tight radius curves were introduced to allow Formula 1 cars to have more possibilities of overtaking. The racetrack is now 4,574 metres long compared to its 6,825 metres in 2001.

Marco Bielli, team manager: “In Hockenheim we want to end the ADAC GT Masters championship in the best way. This was a top quality championship which represents a very prestigious challenge for Bonaldi Motorsport.”.
