ZANTELLI KILLED AT IDROSCALO..

September 15th - Italian F2 driver Paolo Zantelli has been killed in the European Grand Prix at the Idroscala Circuit Milan. It is believed that following a crash with Latvia’s Uvis Slakteris the 48-year-old pilot remained underwater, probably unconscious, for some time after his powerboat capsized. He later died after being rushed to hospital in a critical condition. Zantelli was widely regarded as Italy's premier F2 competitor winning two gold, two silver, and one bronze medal in an European career spanning 17 years.

Victory Team Pay The Penalty...


DOHA (QATAR): His Excellency Sheikh Hassan bin Jabor Al-Thani who began Class One racing in 2003 finally laid to rest his Qatar Grand Prix jinx with a stunning victory alongside Steve Curtis in race one of the 2012 Pearl Qatar Grand Prix on Thursday. The Spirit of Qatar 96 duo controlled a difficult race in masterly fashion to reach the chequered flag 13.77 seconds clear of second-placed Team Abu Dhabi, Rashid Al-Tayer and Majed Al-Mansoori.

“It doesn’t get any better than this,” said a delighted Sheikh Hassan. “At the end of the gate they (Victory) tried to do an illegal move on us and I was surprised to see immediate penalties imposed on them. Then we were in front. This is the first win on the Pearl, the first win of the season - fantastic. Since Dubai, and the issue with the steering, it’s great to have a day like this. The second we crossed the finish line, I heard the screaming on the intercom from Gro (Helgesen) and the team. They did a really good job and this one is for them.”
Qatar’s Ali Al-Neama and Italian throttleman Matteo Nicolini were overtaken by Team Abu Dhabi shortly after the start but held third position to the finish in Spirit of Qatar 95, once Victory 3’s Arif Saif Al-Zafeen and Mohammed Al-Marri had been penalised on four occasions with penalty laps and eventually finished fourth.
result:
1. Hassan Al-Thani (QAT)/Steve Curtis (GBR) Spirit of Qatar 96  31m 53.37s
2. Rashed Al-Tayer (UAE)/Majed Al-Mansoori (UAE) Team Abu Dhabi 5 + 13.77s 
3. Ali Al-Neama (QAT)/Matteo Nicolini (ITA) Spirit of Qatar 95                         + 39.25s
4. Arif Saif Al-Zafeen (UAE)/Mohammed Al-Marri (UAE) Victory 3  +1m 48.95s 
Ugur Isik (TUR)/Christian Zaborowski (NOR) Relekta 91                                 DNF          
Luca Formilli-Fendi (ITA)/Giovanni Carpitella (ITA) Luca Fendi Racing 10  DNF
