Le Mans (France), 13 june 2018. Cetilar Villorba Corse is ready to start the 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours. The Italian team coordinated by Raimondo Amadio is ready to tackle the world’s most famous endurance race for the second year in a row. The tests and the positive results achieved so far in the first two ELMS rounds are an excellent starting point for Roberto Lacorte, Giorgio Sernagiotto and Felipe Nasr on the Dallara LMP2, carefully prepared by the Treviso-based team for the demanding French event which has already begun on the La Sarthe circuit. In 2017 they magically finished in the top ten with ninth place overall and eighth in class.
Some exciting preparation steps for the driver from Pisa Roberto Lacorte, at his second experience in Le Mans, like Treviso-born Giorgio Sernagiotto, while former F 1 Brazilian driver Felipe Nasr will make his debut on the 13.6 kms of the world’s most demanding circuit. Engines will fire up tomorrow, Wednesday, June 13, for free practice, in which the crews will have four hours available. At 10 PM the first two-hour long qualifying session.
-“The emotion of the day before is the same or maybe even greater because we are more aware of the challenge which awaits us – Team Principal Raimondo Amadio explains – Lacorte and Sernagiotto have references from last year’s exciting experience and they have also done some excellent preparation work For Nasr, his experience and versatility will help his debut which remains challenging. Free practice will provide us with some precise indications, after which we will definitely choose the prototype’s settings for qualifying and the race “.“-.
