Things couldn’t have gone better for Rinaldi Racing this weekend at the Blancpain Sprint Series in Misano, Italy.

The team celebrated a brilliant double victory with the only Ferrari in the field. With perfect performance, Marco Seefried, Norbert Siedler, and the entire team around Michele Rinaldi had virtually dominated the entire weekend. The team’s jubilation, therefore, knew no bounds.

The race weekend at the Misano World Circuit was all about Rinaldi Racing. Norbert Siedler had started from pole position in the qualifying race on Saturday evening and defended the lead in a commanding fashion. The Austrian was quickly able to pull away from the competition, demonstrating the impressive performance of Rinaldi Racing. Even a safety car phase did not faze Siedler and Seefried. At the end of the one-hour race, the two professionals celebrated their first victory in the fiercely contested sports car series.

And on Sunday, too, the competition only saw the tail lights of the bright green-painted Rinaldi Ferrari. Marco Seefried also started from first place and only had to relinquish this top position briefly to a Lamborghini. The 39-year-old quickly regained the lead. Together with his team-mate, he continuously extended the lead, so that Rinaldi Racing recorded a commanding victory on Sunday as well. The gap to the second-placed car was more than seven seconds.

“Our team has given everything throughout the season. This success is the reward for that,” beamed Michele Rinaldi as he crossed the finish line on Sunday afternoon. “This weekend we were incredibly strong,” Norbert Siedler was also pleased and added: “Even though it looked easy, the two races were a tough job for us. I’d like to thank the whole crew, who really deserved this result.”

“We have made an insane step forward over the course of this season. I am very proud of all the team members and I am sure we will be able to build on this at the finale,” said Marco Seefried. The final weekend of the Blancpain Sprint Series season will take place in Zandvoort, the Netherlands, from 9 to 11 October.
