The moment of truth has come ! The closing round of the 2014 season of the International GT Open scheduled for next weekend at the Circuit of Barcelona-Catalunya has to deliver the 2014 Champions in both the overall and the classes (SuperGT and GTS) standings, and the battle promises to be quite hot! This is certainly not a new situation for the series, as it is customary that the titles get decided in the last round, but there is no doubt that the battle is extremely close this year.
In the overall standings, three teams will be in contention and are separated by a mere 4-point gap. The V8 Racing Corvette of Nicky Pastorelli-Miguel Ramos are leading, with 179 points (and 5 wins), only 1 point ahead of the SMP Racing-Russian Bears Ferrari of Roman Mavlanov-Daniel Zampieri, who have won 3 races. The Villorba Corse Ferrari of Andrea Montermini-Niccolò Schirò, is third, only four points behind the leader and Montermini (the current reigning champion) is hoping to bring home what would be his third crown in the series. Maxime Soulet (also with a V8 Corvette) is also mathematically still in the race, but with a 27-point gap, his task seems much harder.
