Miguel Ramos and Fabrizio Crestani took a much-awaited maiden today at Monza in Race 1, although the SPS Automotive Performance Mercedes crossed the finish line in second behind the Antonelli Motorsport Mercedes of Riccardo Agostini-Loris Spielli, which had been penalized by 5 seconds for an infringement during the pit stop. The Optimum Motorsport Aston Martin of Ollie Wilkinson-Darren Turner completed the podium.  
Albert Costa and Giacomo Altoè made a giant step towards conquering the 2019 title of the International GT Open by taking fourth today in Race 1 at Monza, ahead of the other Emil Frey Racing Lamborghini of Norbert Siedler-Mikaël Grenier.  The title cannot elude one of the two EFR pairs, but the Spaniard and the Italian are only one point short from mathematical certainty. The Swiss squad also secured the Teams’ title, in a day which saw the Teo Martín Motorsport McLarens hit by bad luck and cut out of the final battle. 
Frederik Schandorff and Tuomas Tujula took their fourth win in Pro-Am with the VSR Lambo and the Dane now leads the class standings with 3 points on Pierburg-OnslowCole (SPS Mercedes), today 6th. Newcomers Oswaldo Negri-Francesco Piovanetti (Spirit of Race Ferrari) won in Am at their debut, after class leader Giuseppe Cipriani (Antonelli Motorsport Mercedes) suffered a puncture in the last lap. The Italian has now a 2-point advantage on Konrad-Hrachowina (HTP Mercedes).  
 

 
THE RACE – Albert Costa keeps the advantage at the kick-off, with a very compact group passing without big trouble the first chicane. The main happening in lap 1 is that Kodrić, in second, loses the front bonnet after Lesmo, and the Croatian is passed in the straight by Spinelli, although his car doesn’t seem to suffer any trouble. Fourth is Crestani, followed by Siedler, Saravia, Turner and Griffin, first in Pro-Am.  
In lap 2, Kodrić drops to fifth. As far as Pro-Am title contenders are concerned, Schandorff has passed Pierburg and is third, while in Am, Coimbra leads ahead of Piovanetti, with class leader Cipriani in third and Hrachowina in fifth. Abbelen spins but rejoin. Kodrić’s race becomes difficult, he drops trough the order and stops in pits in laps 5.  
In lap 9, there is drama at first chicane ad Hahn and Pierburg collide, with the Pro-Am leader ending stuck in the gravel, losing two laps before being able to rejoin. The incident earns Hahn a drive-through. By lap 10, Costa has a 4-second advantage on Spinelli, with Crestani and Siedler very close behind, then Saravia and Turner 10 seconds behind the leader, and Griffin and Schandorff. Cipriani has passed Piovanetti for second in Am, with Hrachowina fourth. 
Driver change opens in lap 15, with Costa stopping in lap 20. After all changes, Agostini leads with 3 seconds on Ramos, 7 on Wilkinson, 12 on Rueda, 16 on Altoè and 20 on Grenier. Still, the leading  Antonelli  Motorsport Mercedes has refueled during the driver change and gets a 5-second penalty. Liang leads in Pro-Am ahead of Tujula. Silva is first in Am ahead of Tujula. Cameron is back to the pits in lap 24, with a possible problem. 
Second part of the race will see Wilkinson, Rueda, Altoè and Grenier coming together in the final laps and fight for third. The battle is especially intense between Rueda and Altoè, who makes a perfect move on the McLaren at the first chicane in the last lap. Unfortunately, the McLaren suffers a puncture collecting a carbon piece, finishing sixth. A puncture also deprives Cipriani of the Am win, which goes to the Ferrari Piovanetti.
