Danilo Petrucci conquered his first podium in endurance. The rider from Terni raced the 4 Hours of Pittsburgh, a round of the WERA National Endurance Series by Dunlop and did it paired with Josh Herrin. For this appointment, he did not use the Panigale V4 with which he races in MotoAmerica, but the 'smaller' V2 version.
Petrux did however live up to his name and fame, getting onto the third step of the podium both in the class and in the overall standings.
The race was won by the TSR Dunlop team of Hayden Gillim, Brandon Paasch and Brad Burns who completed 134 laps on the Suzuki. In second place, one lap behind, was the Army of Darkness crew and Petrucci's Warhorse SBK Racing at +3 laps.
For Danilo it was the first long-distance experience and he can go home satisfied, also thanks to the fastest lap of the race. Not to mention that it was an excellent training to get to know the circuit, given that the next MotoAmerica round (scheduled from 19 to 21 August) will be on the same track.
