In the morning Warm Up session, Gardner clocked more laps on the Italian circuit to finish 14th with a 1’48.165, while Aegerter didn’t set a time in the 15-minute session due to a technical issue.
For the first challenge of the day, the Tissot Superpole Race, the pair started from 12th and 16th on the grid, facing extremely hot conditions in Imola. Both tried their best in the 10-lap contest to gain top nine placements; the #87 recovered to 11th showing consistent race pace, while the #77 was 14th at the chequered flag.
That meant the team-mates had to start from 12th and 16th on the grid once again for the final feature race, which was shortened to 15 laps due to the high temperatures. Gardner and Aegerter gave it all, fighting back to 11th and 12th to add more points to their tally.
