GT – Davide Rigon at Navarra to end up the racing season brilliantly
Davide Rigon gets ready to drive his 500 HP Ferrari 458 to race in the Blancpain Endurance Series’ final racing event, scheduled for this weekend on the Navarra track.
After taking part in the Renault 3.5 World Series competition and having a hard racing weekend at Nurburgring, during which he was involved in a clash at the first corner, the talented Italian driver of Kessel Racing Team gets ready to face the final race of the season with the aim of getting onto the podium again.
“ In these months the car has improved significantly and only few unlucky episodes have denied further satisfactions. At Nurburgring we demonstrated all the abilities to get onto the podium, but just after few kilometres a Porsche led us off track. I’ll go to Spain with a great desire for redemption, so me and my teammates will try to conquer the podium again to end up this racing season at best. It has been a high-level championship as I expected. Driving a Ferrari is always exciting and, of course, a great responsibility”, says Davide Rigon.
As usual, the weekend will consist of two racing days: Saturday is devoted to free practices which are divided into three sessions to last 30 minutes each and to pre-qualifying. Qualifying will be held on Sunday morning (11.00-12.00) and the three hour-long race will start at 14.30.
