Agustín Canapino won the first ever race held at the complete circuit of the Autódromo Internacional de Codegua. Canapino started his qualifying series from the fourth spot, but finished second. With that, he started third in the race, behind poleman Leonel Pernía and Esteban Guerrieri. Guerrieri was attacking Pernía, but he hit a curb in the wrong way and had to retire, so Canapino climbed to the second place. After being 1.5 seconds behind Pernía, Canapino attacked hard with his Peugeot and catched Pernía, making the pass on lap 15 of the 22 lap race. Pernía finished second and championship leader, Néstor Girolami came home third.
Leonel Pernía from Renault LoJack led the first practice at Codegua, Chile with a lap of 1:50.728 to the 4.6 kilometer track. Pernía got a margin of 2 tenths of a second with Agustín Canapino from Peugeot LoJack and 7 tenths of a second with Norberto Fontana from Chevrolet YPF. The session run clean until the last seconds of the free practice, when Facundo Ardusso from Fiat Petronas had a big crash at the entrance of the pitlane. Ardusso crashed with a tyre protection and some “New jerseys” destroying his Fiat Linea. Ardusso will miss the chilean race and will give up hopes of championship, that is still led by Néstor Girolami from Peugeot LoJack. Girolami had a nightmare practice, only completing 3 laps after problems with the hydraulic direction.
Qualifying for the series of the chilean round are scheduled today.
