The Italian squad led by Raimondo Amadio will enter the fifth round of the series organized by the GT Sport of Jesus Pareja with their race drivers Alessandro Balzan and Nicola Benucci. Behind the wheel of their powerful Ferrari 458 GT3 the Villorba pair will face a particularly challenging round on the most demanding track of them all. After five podiums (one win among them) out of eight races, first goal will be to get confirmed among the major contenders fighting at the top of the standings to leave behind the misfortune occurred in race-2 at Zeltweg. Fifth GT Open round kicks off with two free practice sessions on Friday. Two qualifying sessions are scheduled on Saturday at 9:00hrs and 11.40hrs while the 70-minute race-1 will start at 15:55hrs. Sixty-minute race-2 is to be held on Sunday at 13:55hrs. Both races will be broadcasted live on http://www.gtopen.net (clicking on WEB TV).
Raimondo Amadio, Team Principal, said: “After a very long break there is no place better than Spa to restart our engine. This legendary track means a lot to Villorba Corse. The team lived great moments and scored stunning victories here. We are expecting a very tough weekend, especially because we will have to recover the points we lost at the Red Bull Ring for a minor electrical problem. In Belgium also begins the final rush of the season. From now on every opportunity to score points will have to be taken”.
