240 minutes of adrenalin, at one of the most fascinating, fast and historical tracks in the world: the 4 Hours of Monza officially starts the 2019 Cetilar Racing season. An event not to be missed for the all-Italian team led by team principal Raimondo Amadio and sporting director Christian Pescatori, as well as its supporters.
This coming weekend (10/11/12 May) Roberto Lacorte, Giorgio Sernagiotto and Andrea Belicchi, will share the wheel of the #47 Dallara LMP2 car in the second European Le Mans Series round, looking forward their third consecutive participation at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, whose 87th edition is scheduled for mid-June.
From the “temple of speed”, the new Cetilar Racing’s challenge is set to kick-off, becoming the first step to the FIA WEC 2019-2020 debut.
Plenty of novelty at Monza. After 391 days, Belicchi returns to race, as the Italian driver entered last year only the Paul Ricard round. Speaking of the technical aspect new Michelin tyres have been introduced.
42 cars will be fielded, with a grid-record of 19 LMP2 Prototypes; the largest number in the category outside the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Concerning the La Sarthe race, “The Italian Spirit of Le Mans. Back to 24H”, the movie about the Cetilar Racing adventure at the French marathon, is now fully available at the team’s YouTube channel.
Action at Monza gets underway tomorrow – Wednesday, May 8th – with the private official test consisting in a two-hour morning session, from 9 to 11, followed by two more hours of training in the afternoon, from 14 to 16. In the same day the Dallara new livery will be finally unveiled. Free Practice 1 will start on Friday, while Free Practice 2 on Saturday morning, followed by the Qualifying at 14.20. The race starts on Sunday at 12 and will be live streamed on the official europeanlemansseries.com website.
