VILLORBA CORSE FIGHTS BACK IN THE 4 HOURS OF SILVERSTONE

Cetilar Villorba Corse took a precious sixth place in the 4 Hours of Silverstone after recovering from 32nd on the grid. The first round of the 2017 European Le Mans Series, held on Saturday, saw a result that goes beyond all expectations and marked in a positive way the debut of Roberto Lacorte, Giorgio Sernagiotto and Andrea Belicchi behind the wheel of the new Dallara P217.

After two consistent free practice sessions, at Silverstone their weekend had been complicated by alternator issues so that they could not take part in qualifying. However, started from the 16th row, the entire Italian team and its crew run a perfect and spectacular race, showing both competitiveness and reliability. Through several battles and overtaking Lacorte, Sernagiotto and Belicchi climbed the field up to sixth place which gave team and drivers the first 8 points in the standings. Next round of the 2017 ELMS will be held in Monza, Cetilar Villorba Corse home race, on May 14.

Team Principal Amadio says: “We did a super job and we are very happy for that. After an exciting race the team had a concrete result and I must say ‘well done’ to the drivers and all the boys. We had a consistent pace and we also understood how to improve some new details. We were making our debut in LMP2, with the new prototype, against many fierce rivals and on one of the most demanding track in the world: it was really a great day!”.
