The lights go out for the Time Attack Series cars at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. On Friday 24 and Saturday 25 June, the drivers of the Italian series will return to the Temple of Speed to challenge each other in search of the fastest lap, thus giving life to the fourth seasonal appointment of the Championship, after those of Misano, the Red Bull Ring in Austria and Vallelunga. The day of the 24th will be dedicated to free practice, while from 9 a.m. on Saturday 25 qualifying and the races of the various categories will start.
At the top of the overall standings there are currently two Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Xs, with Olivia Merlini 60 lengths ahead of Serse Zeli, winner of the last four editions of the series organized by Andrea Scorrano’s WD Automotive.
