The Argentine Franco Girolami, with an Audi, had won the first race of the Italian Tourist Motorsport (TCR) that took place today at the traditional Monza racetrack, but a penalty awarded by the authorities delayed him to thirteenth place.

The sports stewards of the test considered that the Córdoba driver overtook the Italian Marco Butti (Hyundai) with a “yellow flag” in turn 1 of the 5,793 meter long circuit.

In this way, a 5-second surcharge was applied to the person born in the town of Isla Verde, so he fell from the first to the thirteenth position.

Girolami, 31 years old, had won the competition by completing the 12 laps of the requirement, in a cumulative time of 34m. 03s. 515/1000.

The Cordoban had also reached pole position, but started in third place due to a penalty imposed on him for an incident with the Dutchman Niels Langeveld (Honda Civic) in the previous race in Mugello.

In this way, the Estonian Ruben Volt (Honda Civic) inherited the victory, with a total time of 34m. 03s. 860/1000, escorted by Langeveld (Honda Civic), who finished second, and by the Italian Felice Jelmini (Audi), who finished third.

The second race of the weekend will be held tomorrow, starting at 6:30 in Argentina, 30 minutes plus one lap.
