After their magic debut in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the World Endurance Championship, Cetilar Villorba Corse returns to the 2017 European Le Mans Series, whose third round will be held from July 21 to 23 in Austria.
The 4 Hours of Red Bull Ring represents a new and challenging commitment before the summer break for the all-Italian team led by Raimondo Amadio and the #47 Dallara P217 Gibson of Roberto Lacorte, Giorgio Sernagiotto and Andrea Belicchi. The three were stunning protagonists in Le Mans, where they finished ninth overall and seventh in the LMP2 class, while in the Europe’s leading sportscar championship they shone both at Silverstone and Monza. The foothills of the Styrian Alps will reverberate to the sound of 36 European Le Mans Series competitors. The grid will feature 28 teams and 99 drivers representing 21 different nations from around the globe. The 4 Hours of Red Bull Ring will take place on Sunday 23 July. In addition to the free live stream of the race on the official website at http://www.europeanlemansseries.com, you can watch the race live on Motorsport.TV and MotorTrendonDemand across Europe and the USA. Live coverage will begin just before the race begins at 13h00 CET.
Team Principal Amadio says: “After our magic experience at Le Mans we get back to ELMS on a circuit that gave us a lot in terms of emotions in the past. In the first two rounds of the series we improved quite well both on performance and consistency so the key goal will be to continue this way to get at least one podium before the end of the season. I saw that harmony in the team has grown a lot after our great effort at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and I believe that we can do well in Austria”.
