Lamborghini World Final: Agostini quickest in Pro qualifying
Riccardo Agostini topped Pro and Pro-Am class qualifying for the first Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Final race at Imola.
Agostini, the Super Trofeo North America champion sharing with Trent Hindman, hit the top halfway through the 20-minute session with a lap of 1m40.980s.
That knocked Yuki Nemoto off pole by just 0.011, and Agostini was still fastest when the full course yellow was thrown with eight minutes remaining thanks to Kei Cozzolino stopping at Tamburello.
Nemoto subsequently made several attempts to reclaim pole but was unable to improve before the red flag was deployed with 70 seconds of the session remaining thanks to a crash at the final corner.
In a very tight qualifying session the top four drivers were covered by just 0.109s, with Edoardo Liberati third ahead of Super Trofeo Europe champion Loris Spinelli.
Jeroen Mul, making a guest appearance in a Super Trofeo North America entry at Imola, set the fifth fastest time with three minutes remaining, putting him three-hundredths ahead of Dennis Lind.
Axcil Jefferies grabbed seventh place from Richard Antinucci with two minutes remaining, with Super Trofeo Asia racer Artur Janosz ninth.
Cozzolino, along with co-driver Afiq Yazid the Asia champion, was 10th after his session came to an early end with an off at Tamburello.
Brandon Gdovic claimed Pro-Am pole position in 11th place, just four-hundredths ahead of Lucas Mauron.
Taylor Proto was third in class, separated from Mauron by Enzo Postiglione’s Pro car. Michele Beretta rounded out the top 15, which was covered by just 1.205s.
