Italian fans have plenty to cheer for at Vallelunga

Italian football and motorsport fans will be eagerly awaiting next weekend's Vallelunga round of the unqiue football-themed motor racing championship, Superleague Formula.

AS Roma

Italian clubs AC Milan and AS Roma both qualified on the front row of the grid at the previous round at Estoril and the pair will be out to repeat their podium scoring performances.

AC Milan's Robert Doornbos has proven to be the championship's fastest and most consistent man in qualifying. The Nurburgring race winner has made for the shoot-out portion of qualifying at every round this year – the only man to achieve this feat.

He finished second in the opening race behind Liverpool at Estoril and then charged from the back of the grid to again grab the runner-up spot in the reverse grid race.

Series debutante Frank Perera scored pole on debut for AS Roma and went on to finish third in race one. Unfortunately, a tangle with Liverpool's Adrian Valles put him out of race two, but the young Frenchman who has driven in Formula Atlantic, Champ Car, Indy Lights and IndyCar in the past two years in the US showed he has top-line European pace as well.
