Breitling today presented its new “Spotlight Squad” as it launched Chronomat 36 and 32 watches for “women of purpose, action, and style.”

“Our inspiration for this new collection is the Breitling woman herself. A woman of purpose, action, and style who’s at the top of her game,” said Breitling CEO Georges Kern at the launch.

“Some people have mastered the art of not only shining in the spotlight but also shining their light on others and inspiring change in the world. Three of them are on our Spotlight Squad: Charlize Theron, Misty Copeland, and Yao Chen. These extraordinary entertainers are at the top of their game and have shattered the stereo­types clinging to their gender and respective fields,” Breitling explained.

• Charlize Theron — Originally from South Africa, Oscar-winner Charlize Theron has proven her versatility in numerous roles and genres. In 2004, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress after playing a serial killer in Monster. In 2019, she starred in and co-produced the drama Bombshell, receiving nomination for another Academy Award.

• Misty Copeland — In 2007, dancer Misty Copeland was only the second African-American woman to be promoted to soloist with American Ballet Theatre (ABT); in 2015, she was the first African-American woman to become a principal dancer. That year, Time magazine named her one of the world’s 100 most influential people.

• Yao Chen — Chinese TV and film actress Yao Chen has won many awards, including the Audience Choice category of China’s Golden Eagle Award (2010) and Best Actress at the Busan International Film Festival (2016, Asian Content). In 2019, she won the Golden Mulberry Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Far East Film Festival.

In addition to excelling on screen and stage, these three are not afraid to take control of their story­lines while trying to improve others’ lives. Indeed, they form a tenacious squad of women who stand up for their beliefs and the issues closest to their hearts, the company said.

“Who better than Charlize Theron, Misty Copeland, and Yao Chen to turn the spotlight on major global causes as they redefine what it means to be a strong woman? Three leading stars are known for being fierce and pushing boundaries. What binds them together is the Spotlight Squad and Breitling’s dedication to change, diversity, and reshaping the world we live in,” Breitling CEO Georges Kern added. “And now - dedicated to women - the new Chronomat 36 and 32 collection embodies flair, confidence, and an active lifestyle.”

The Chronomat 36 and 32 series - takes women wherever they want to go.

Sporty yet elegant, this modern-retro-inspired watch quickly takes its wearer from business meeting to the beach - and everywhere in between. It symbolizes competence and effortless style.

The stunning watches in the Chronomat for Women range feature Breitling’s iconic Rouleaux bracelet with a butterfly clasp, which is as robust as it is elegant.

In terms of finish, these timepieces are nearly as diverse as the women on the Spotlight Squad. Along with the choice of sizes (36 mm Automatic and 32 mm SuperQuartz™), they are also available in various metal cases.

The Chronomat Automatic 36 is powered by the Breitling Caliber 10 with a reserve of about 42 hours. There are ten versions to choose from, with striking lacquered dials in white, pale green, midnight blue, or copper.

The Chronomat 32 runs on the Breitling Caliber 77 and has a battery life of three to four years. It comes in seven versions, with white or midnight blue dials.

The original 1984 Chronomat helped signal a rebirth of the Swiss watch industry, and it has inspired many more timepieces over the past four decades - including women’s models.

Today, the Chronomat 36 and 32 collections’ modern-retro watches shine the spotlight on confident and versatile women.

October 21, 2020 — Team Telluriders triumphantly crossed the finish line in the 2020 Telluride in the fifth annual Rebelle Rally, coming in overall second place in the X-Cross class. The powerhouse duo made up of Alyssa Roenigk (driver) and Sabrina Howells (navigator) demonstrated their “Give it Everything” attitude, using their invaluable set of skills. They made smart and calculated decisions tailored to the Telluride’s capability, ultimately allowing it to shine and finish the challenging, off-road rally.

The Rebelle Rally is the first all-women’s off-highway navigation rally raid in the U.S. and the longest competition of its kind in the lower 48 states.

“This is a momentous achievement for Kia,” said Sean Yoon, president & CEO, Kia Motors North America & Kia Motors America. “Thanks to Alyssa and Sabrina’s grit in the arduous Rebelle Rally, they helped raise the Telluride’s credibility to new heights. Their huge accomplishment will go down in Kia history, and we couldn’t be more proud of our team.”

From Lake Tahoe to Mexico’s border, Team Telluriders graciously handled whatever challenges the course threw at them. After facing more formidable obstacles on rocky terrain at the start, Alyssa and Sabrina were keen on the Telluride’s strengths, using it to their advantage in the following days to result in several stage wins.

“Alyssa, Sabrina, and the Telluride did such a great job in this year’s rally,” said Rebelle Rally founder Emily Miller. We consider the vehicle as the third teammate, and all three handled the challenge with grace. They are an exceptional team.”

The team was able to clinch second place in the X-Cross class after excelling in the dunes, where the Telluride effortlessly floated over the sandy landscape to hit several checkpoints first before several competitors, taking the win for the most points scored on the final day of the competition.

“We are so proud of our overall performance and our comeback to take second in the X-Cross category at the 2020 Rebelle Rally,” said Alyssa and Sabrina. “On the final day, when we pulled up to checkpoints deep in the Imperial Sand Dunes and saw the look on the faces of the 4x4 teams when we beat them there - that is a memory that will stick in our minds for a long time. The Telluride was an incredibly capable third teammate, and we were grateful for the opportunity to take her on such an awesome adventure.”

Kia was a first-time competitor in the fifth annual Rebelle Rally, competing in the X-Cross Class with minimal modifications, including a skid plate to protect the fuel and oil pan area and all-terrain tires.

Alyssa Roenigk is a senior writer for ESPN and has committed countless adventure acts to pursue a story. She has reported cover pieces for ESPN The Magazine, TV features for X Games and SportsCenter, and provided daily coverage at the Olympics, Grand Slams, Super Bowls, and the Women’s World Cup. She was part of the first U.S. team to win the Aïcha des Gazelle Rally in Morocco.

Sabrina Howells is a Los Angeles-based actress (Everybody Hates Chris, Kaleidoscope, Freddy’s Nightmares) and musician (Henry Henrietta). She has competed in four consecutive Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles in Morocco, including the Expert Class in 2015. She competed in the Rebelle Rally in 2016, taking 1st place in the crossover class, and again in 2017, placing second.

Porsche Panamera


Mumbai, India. — Porsche said it is completing the product line-up for the new Panamera with a 700 PS (514 kW), 870 Nm flagship. The new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is now the most powerful variant in the revamped product line, combining a 571 PS (420 kW), four-liter bi-turbo V8 with a 136 PS (100 kW) electric motor. Its all-electric range has been increased by up to 30 percent, thanks to a new 17.9 kWh battery and optimized driving modes, the company said.

Porsche explained that the electric motor is integrated into the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK). It produces a power output of 136 PS (100 kW) maximum torque of 400 Nm. Together with the different combustion engines offered, this makes for outstanding driving performance. The new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid now completes the sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds - 0.2 seconds faster than its predecessor. It reaches a top speed of 315 km/h, representing an improvement of 5 km/h.

The high-voltage battery’s gross capacity has been increased from 14.1 to 17.9 kWh using the optimized cells. You can charge the Porsche plug-in hybrid model at home - either via a standard domestic outlet or a power socket. A model-specific charging capacity of up to 7.2 kW is possible with the customary Porsche Mobile Charger. Charging can also be done at public charging points using a Mode 3 cable, Porsche explained.

The newly designed front end of the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid has dual C-shaped Turbo front light modules and larger side air intakes. The revamped light bar at the rear now runs seamlessly over the luggage compartment lid with an adapted contour. The options available include darkened Exclusive Design tail light modules with dynamic Coming/Leaving Home animation, three new 20- and 21-inch wheels, and two new exterior colors, Cherry Metallic and Truffle Brown Metallic.

The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) features a higher display resolution and includes additional services such as wireless Apple® CarPlay.

Porsche stated that it has tuned in the chassis and control systems for sportiness and comfort in all-new Panamera models.

Dubai/Mumbai — The Porsche 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4 models are now available with the seven-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK), Porsche said.

The automatic transmission is now available for all drivers who want to enjoy no interruptions in acceleration during gear changes and better acceleration values. Compared with the 718 models featuring a manual transmission, the 420 PS (309 kW) GT models - the 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 - now accelerate from 0-100 km/h half a second faster, in 3.9 seconds. They reach the 200 km/h mark in 13.4 seconds (0.4 seconds more quickly).

The PDK versions of the 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 benefit from the enhancements made to their mechanical locking rear differential. It achieves 30 and 37 percent locking values in traction and overrun modes compared with 22 and 27 percent with manual transmission. The company explained that this positively affects the longitudinal and lateral dynamics and traction, increasing driving pleasure.

Porsche’s ‘718’ family will start the 2021 model year with a host of new features. High-quality Race-Tex material will replace the Alcantara fabric. The company would add vivid special paint Python Green to the color range of the GT models — 718 Cayman GT4 and 718 Spyder. The 718 Spyder will also be available with the 20-inch wheels in Aurum - this was previously only available for the 718 Cayman GT4. There will also be the option to equip the roadster with similarly-sized conventional summer tires instead of the standard ultra-high-performance tires.

The 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4 models with automatic transmission are available now. The nearest Porsche Center can provide information on the primary retail price, model specifications, and local availability.

International Model Yilena Hernandez Featured on Cover of Vogue Beauty's October Issue

BATON ROUGE, La., Oct. 15, 2020 — The past year has been a tough one by any standards as COVID-19 swept across the world. Yet, international model Yelena Hernandez says she hopes she played a role in distracting women from that via the fashion and beauty brands she modeled as the cover girl for multiple marquee fashion magazines this summer and fall.

Hernandez appeared on the covers of the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar in Vietnam, the July issue of Harper’s Bazaar in Romania, and the July issue of Marie Claire in Ukraine. And, this month, she is front and center in Vogue Beauty Ukraine.

In October’s “The Skin I Live In” issue, Hernandez showcases beauty products from her makeup line, Yilena Luxury Beauty, and lipstick from Runway Rogue. And though wardrobe took a backseat to skin health this time around, she also rocked chic all-white minimalistic looks by AWAN, Fernando Alberto Atelier, St. Roche, and Neiman Marcus.

“I take my job very seriously, and my goal with any shoot is to make the customer feel something. Since the pandemic started, I have tried very hard to help women escape the stressors of everyday life by helping them focus on the fun of fashion and beauty,” explained Hernandez. “The Vogue cover also means a lot to me as I was able to give consumers a glimpse at my makeup brand.”

“I am thrilled to have been chosen for the Vogue Beauty cover, and hope readers enjoy the issue. If nothing else, COVID has taught us that we need to seize the moment and make the most of our time and talents. For my part, I will continue to use career opportunities to bring some needed levity during this crazy time,” she added.

SUNNYVALE, Calif., October 14, 2020 — This weekend marked a historic moment for Ducati as their Italian rider Lorenzo Zanetti took a phenomenal victory at the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He fended off the best superbike racers’ advances in the United States and made a memorable U.S. debut for the Ducati Corse-supplied Panigale V4 R SBK.

The victory was the first time since 2010 that a Ducati had won a Superbike Championship Race in the U.S.A.

Zanetti immediately made an impression in the first of the weekend’s three Superbike races. The Ducati Corse test rider ran off the track while leading, then miraculously found his way back onto the track and fought his way back for a debut podium spot in third place. In race two, Zanetti, determined to show the full potential of the Ducati Panigale V4 R SBK, picked his moment to take the lead in the closing laps and powered the Ducati across the famous yard of bricks to finish in the first place.

“In the end, it was an amazing weekend for me with three podiums and a victory. It is unbelievable,” Zanetti beamed after race three. “I’m thrilled. It was a great day. Thanks to Ducati for giving me the chance to race against the best riders in the United States. They are World Championship level riders. I like the American people, so I hope to be back racing again more next year.”

A native of Brescia, Italy, Zanetti is the official test rider for Ducati Corse and is riding in the MotoAmerica series for the Warhorse Racing HSBK Ducati New York team.

The Warhorse HSBK Ducati New York Team will be back on track with Zanetti on the weekend of October 24 and 25 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca for the final round of the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship.

Breitling presented the elegant 35-millimeter Navitimer Automatic, designed for women of style, action, and purpose. Reflecting more than 65 years of history, the modern take on the Navitimer Automatic 35 has a distinctly sophisticated personality inspired by some of the most impressive Breitlings of the 1950s. Women who wear the Navitimer Automatic 35 will be wearing a timepiece that not only reflects their unique, stylish flair but also carries on one of the watchmaking’s greatest traditions, the company said.

According to Breitling, its Navitimer Automatic 35 is the ultimate statement of elegance and the perfect accessory for any occasion, whether it’s a meeting in the boardroom or a weekend getaway.

With a choice of colorful dials, a mother-of-pearl dial set with diamonds, and alligator leather straps, Breitling says it has designed these stunning new models for the cosmopolitan, stylish woman on the go.

Breitling CEO Georges Kern is enthusiastic about the new release: “With the Navitimer Automatic 35, we have created a watch that reflects what women have been telling us: They’ve asked for a stylish, smaller Navitimer that doesn’t sacrifice heritage or functionality. It needed to be recreated just for women and suitable for any occasion. With different cases and strap options, we’ve introduced what modern women look for in a watch, even those who may not have previously considered wearing a Breitling.”

The Navitimer Automatic 35 is available in four different versions, each powered by the Breitling Caliber 17, which delivers a power reserve of about 38 hours. Like all Breitling watches, they are COSC-certified chrono­meters, which is an independent confirmation of their precision.

Reebok

Reebok Angus

Boston, MA. October 3, 2020 - Today, Reebok announces its collection with contemporary menswear designer Angus Chiang. The line, comprised of three colorways of the Zig Kinetica Concept Type 2, was initially revealed during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year.

The Angus Chiang first-generation digital era designs heavily inspire reebok Zig Kinetica Concept Type 2. The footwear styles are a quintessential merger of loud Reebok designs and Angus’s bold color blocking, a key pillar of his work, Reebok said. Further playing with the idea of clashing harmonization, the materials used, such as corduroy, leather, and canvas, make for an elevated look and feel that comes together despite the different components used, Reebok added.

The Zig Kinetica Concept Type 2, Reebok explains, is a luxe spin on its innovative, original Zig Kinetica. In addition to the fashion-forward silhouette, the sneaker contains revolutionary cushioning to propel you forward with springy responsiveness.

Mastercard Delivers Greater Transparency in Digital Banking Applications

Mastercard

Purchase, NY | September 30, 2020 —Mastercard collaborates with merchants and financial institutions to include logos in digital banking applications.

As more businesses turn to digital payments, and the number of connected devices grows, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: consumers are demanding more clarity around what they bought and who they bought it from, Mastercard said.

Almost everyone has experienced the frustration of trying to decipher confusing and brief purchase descriptions when reviewing online statements. This confusion forces cardholders to contact their banks unnecessarily to dispute unrecognized transactions, adding extra steps for consumers and generating an array of costs for merchants and banks, Mastercard explained.

A new initiative from Mastercard and managed by Ethoca, the company’s collaborative fraud and dispute resolution technology, aims to eliminate this confusion and improve the customer experience. Mastercard encourages all merchants to upload their logos at Ethoca for inclusion in online banking and payment apps. The merchant logos will be linked to corresponding transactions, adding clear visual cues to help cardholders quickly identify legitimate purchases. Participating merchants can simultaneously extend their brand presence as well as eliminate expensive and time-consuming chargebacks. This program is also available to all financial institutions, Mastercard added.

According to Mastercard, a recent Ethoca-commissioned Aite Group study of the US market revealed that 96% of consumers want more details to recognize purchases easily. Global chargeback volume may reach 615 million by 2021, fueled in large part by frustrated consumers turning to the dispute process unintentionally.

“With greater digital dependency, having real-time purchase details is critical for consumers, merchants, and card issuers alike,” said Johan Gerber, executive vice president, Cyber and Security Products at Mastercard. “We continue to collaborate with industry partners to bring clarity and simplicity before, during, and after transactions. By enriching transaction details, merchants can alleviate friendly fraud, reduce chargebacks, and improve the customer experience.”

This endeavor is part of comprehensive efforts to deliver the most efficient, safe, and simple payment experience from the minute a consumer begins browsing to once they’ve made the purchase, Mastercard stated.

Leading diamond producers introduce Natural Diamond Council with a star-studded campaign starring Ana de Armas.

The new campaign, ‘For Moments Like No Other,’ highlights the versatile beauty of natural diamonds.

MUMBAI, India, Sept. 28, 2020 — The world’s leading diamond producers, Diamond Producers Association, relaunched as the Natural Diamond Council (NDC) to promote the desirability of natural diamonds and support the integrity of the natural diamond industry. As an industry authority, the NDC aims to become the go-to digital publisher for innovative content covering all that’s new and exciting in the industry. With the brand’s repositioning, NDC has launched their first-ever celebrity-led TVC campaign, ‘For Moments Like No Other,’ with the gorgeous Hollywood actress Ana de Armas.

This new campaign marks several firsts for the Natural Diamond Council, in addition to welcoming its first Hollywood headliner. It is the first celebrity-fronted campaign for a diamond group, adding an essential contribution to an industry that supports the livelihoods of roughly 10 million people worldwide. It is also the first campaign dedicated to NDC’s ‘Only Natural Diamonds’ platform and the first marketing initiative to showcase such a diverse roster of Jewellery designers that work with natural diamonds in exceptionally modern ways.

Ana De Armas is a rising Hollywood star. She recently received a Golden Globe nomination for her Knives Out role and will soon appear in the latest James Bond film ‘No Time to Die.’ She shines in the multi-part campaign that celebrates the myriad connections that lead to natural diamonds being worn or exchanged. NDC says it approached Ms. de Armas for the project as she radiates with poise and modernity and epitomizes an ascendant, free-thinking generation. Her elegant, effervescent, and easygoing demeanor reflects the next chapter in the history of natural diamonds, a mindset in which the traditional tenets of diamond-wearing and exchanging are dismantled, leaving an open playing field in their place. Ana appears in laid-back outdoor settings with friends. A fresh, opened-up association emphasizes that diamonds are not solely the purview of romantic interests or formal occasions. They are for every type of connection.

“I love thinking of diamonds this way, as special emblems of even our small personal moments,” said Ms. Ana de Armas. “They represent joy, warmth, and beauty.”

Richa Singh, Managing Director, NDC, India, said: “It was a challenge to put together the brand and campaign launch when the world is going through such tough times, but it has been a rewarding experience. The campaign fits as consumers have greater respect for everything natural and want to buy fewer but better things. They are looking for things that last and have a meaning and emotion attached to it. We wish to create desirability for diamonds in consumers’ minds when it comes to celebrating life’s every moment, and our campaign featuring Ana De Armas portrays that beautifully. The TVC redefines special moments, celebrating a variety of personal connections with natural diamonds.”

The campaign, which was lensed in coastal Portugal, directed by Manu Cossu and photographed by Camilla Åkrans, will have a global presence, running in India, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and China.

The Natural Diamond Council (NDC) advances diamonds’ desirability by publishing trends and sharing resources and information with consumers on the ultimate timeless and natural luxury goods. The NDC also supports the natural diamond industry’s integrity, providing transparency and insight into this sector’s ethics, sustainability, and progress.

TORRANCE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2020 — Acura Motorsports announced it would partner with Meyer Shank Racing and Wayne Taylor Racing to campaign a pair of Acura ARX-05 Daytona Prototype International entries in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, beginning in 2021.

The WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is a sports car racing series based in the United States and Canada and organized by the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA). It resulted from a merger between two existing North American sports car racing series, the American Le Mans Series and Rolex Sports Car Series.

“It is a pleasure to announce that Wayne Taylor Racing will be joining the Acura ARX-05 IMSA program in 2021, along with Meyer Shank Racing,” said Jon Ikeda, Acura Brand Officer. “We’re confident that both teams will help us build on the successes we’ve achieved to date in IMSA competition.”

Defending IMSA GTD class champion Meyer Shank Racing [MSR] is in its third decade of operation. With wins in some of the sport’s biggest races, the Ohio-based team played a vital role in developing the successful Acura NSX GT3 Evo and has raced the car to victory lane in four consecutive seasons culminating in the drivers’ and teams’ titles in 2019. Acura and MSR are the current leaders in all three major GTD title championships.

“We welcome Wayne Taylor Racing into the Acura Motorsports family, and very much anticipate their contributions to our prototype program,” said Ted Klaus, president of HPD (Honda Performance Development), the competition arm for Acura Motorsports. “Equally, we look forward to growing our successful partnership with Meyer Shank Racing. We intend to have Acura Motorsports partner with MSR and WTR, not only to continue our championship ways but to collaborate to develop the next generation Acura LMDh.”

Acura is a leading automotive nameplate that, according to it, “delivers Precision Crafted Performance - a commitment to expressive styling, high performance and innovative engineering - all built on a foundation of quality and reliability.”

Acura Motorsports programs have been integral to the Acura brand since its launch in 1986.

PepsiCo Targets 100% Renewable Electricity Globally

Food and beverage leader joins RE100 initiative with the ambition to achieve 100% renewable electricity globally for direct operations by 2030 and across the entire franchise and third-party functions by 2040

PURCHASE, N.Y., Sept. 21, 2020 — PepsiCo Inc. today announced a new target to source 100% renewable electricity across all of its company-owned and controlled operations globally by 2030 and its entire franchise and third-party functions by 2040. With PepsiCo’s scale, the transition has the potential to reduce approximately 2.5 million metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2040, the equivalent of taking more than half a million cars off the road for a full year. This announcement builds upon the company’s global efforts to increase its use of renewable energy sources and its transition to renewable electricity in the U.S., its largest market, announced earlier this year.

“With the devastating effects of climate change around the world, and the global food system under significant strain, accelerated action is needed,” said Jim Andrew, Chief Sustainability Officer, PepsiCo. “We know the responsibility that comes with our size and scale, so transitioning PepsiCo’s global business operations to 100% renewable electricity is the right step forward to deliver meaningful impact as we continue to advance our sustainability agenda.”

Early this year, PepsiCo signed the Business Ambition for 1.5°C pledge, joining other leading companies in committing to set science-based emissions reduction targets. The company has made significant progress in reducing GHG emissions throughout its value chain - from working with farmers to implement carbon-efficient practices through its global Sustainable Farming Program to operating one of the largest electric fleets in North America.

PepsiCo currently procures renewable electricity in 18 countries, nine of which already meet 100% of their electricity demand from renewable sources. With the shift to renewable electricity in the U.S. underway this year, PepsiCo is currently on track to start 56% of its electricity through renewable sources globally by the end of 2020.

With this announcement, PepsiCo joins RE100, an initiative led by the Climate Group to bring together the world’s most influential companies committed to 100% renewable electricity.

“By transforming their global business operations to renewable electricity, PepsiCo is demonstrating a strong commitment to combat climate change, while underlining the business case for renewables,” said Sam Kimmins, Head of RE100 at The Climate Group. “By investing in the development of new solar and wind farms around the world to meet their target, PepsiCo is making a real tangible contribution to accelerating the clean energy transition.”

To achieve 100% renewable electricity globally, PepsiCo will employ a diversified portfolio of solutions, including Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). The contracts will support developing new projects such as solar and wind farms worldwide and purchased energy certificates to enable the near-term transition to renewable sources in many geographies. The company will also continue to expand its growing list of onsite wind and solar projects at its facilities around the world. PepsiCo’s global headquarters in Purchase, NY, installed rooftop solar energy panels earlier this year.

Lamborghini secures one−two finish in penultimate Italian GT Endurance round Release Date: 20 September 2020

Sant’Agata Bolognese/Vallelunga, 20 September 2020 - Lamborghini recorded its first Italian GT Championship Endurance victory of the season in the hands of Imperiale Racing’s Kikko Galbiati, Alex Frassineti and Giovanni Venturini at Vallelunga.

The #32 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo started from pole position following Saturday’s qualifying session and duly maintained its advantage over the three-hour race.

It was a Lamborghini one-two finish at the end, as the #19 Vincenzo Sospiri Racing Huracán of Lamborghini GT3 Junior drivers Leonardo Pulcini and Yuki Nemoto claimed a second-place alongside team-mate Raffaele Giammaria.

For the #32, it was a lights-to-flag victory, aided by the rapid Frassineti, who got a clean start and built a healthy margin over the second-placed car.

Frassineti handed over to Galbiati at the first driver-change pit-stop, with the latter maintaining the margin out front. By the time Galbiati switched with Lamborghini Factory Driver Venturini, the race was all but in the bag.

Venturini eventually headed the #19 to the flag by just over six seconds.

The result also has significant championship implications for the Imperiale Racing partnership of Galbiati and Venturini ahead of the final endurance round of the season at Monza on the opening weekend of November.

The duo is now second in the points standings, just two points adrift of the leading BMW crew of Stefano Comandini and Marius Zug.
