The all-Italian squad heads to the Chinese venue having a double goal, continuing to work on developing the #47 Dallara LMP2 car powered by AF Corse and aiming to finish the race as it did in the previous two events in Uk and Japan, that marked the Cetilar Racing debut in the World Endurance Championship.
Roberto Lacorte, Giorgio Sernagiotto and Andrea Belicchi embark on the Asian round with a positive spirit. Lacorte makes his first appearance at the 5,4 kms of the track located near the town periphery. Sernagiotto has already raced there in 2012 Maserati Trophy, although at the short circuit version.
Different things are for Belicchi, who claimed a fourth place at Shanghai in 2014 FIA WEC driving an LMP1 car, finishing fourth in the two previous seasons.
Following the good debut at Silverstone ended with the sixth position, and a tough race at Fuji where it took a final P7 despite some unespected problems, Cetilar Racing vows to come back stronger.
Free practice one and two get underway on Friday at 4 and 8.30 CET. Free practice three begins on Saturday at 2.50 CET, followed by the qualifying at 7.30 CET. The 4 Hours of Shanghai will start on Sunday at 12 local time, the 5 CET.
