02 Aug 2016 — Gino Bardelli took second place in the ES_P1 class in the Daytona Road Course – 12hr Multiclass.
Driving the Audi R10 TDI, Bardelli wrestled the advantage back and forth with David Buitrago in a long and persistent battle for second from the beginning, passing each other five times over a stretch of 16 laps. Bardelli spent the majority pursuing Buitrago after engaging him on the third lap. Bardelli launched a prolonged attack at Buitrago in the late stages, staying within a lap behind him and gaining ground over a solid run of five laps. Bardelli cleared Buitrago for the third time and into second place when Buitrago retired on lap 32, and kept it the final few laps to the finish.
