The results of the final race are in and Gianmarco, with a fifth-place finish would secure the 2008 Formula BMW Americas Rookie Championship. It was very close at the end with Gianmarco starting the day two points back. Gmo had lead the rookie race all season long until the penultimate round on Saturday when he finished sixth and behind his closest rival. But it would seem that being patient pays off and Gianmarco, who started the day from fifth on the grid, would run a clean race an stay on pace to finish fifth and take the championship.
Congratulations to Gianmarco, his parents Emilio and Anna Maria and everyone at Team Autotecnica for a successful season. We will have updates when they return from Brazil.
