GT – Davide Rigon on the way to Nurburgring
Almost 2 months after the 24h of Spa-Francorchamps, Davide Rigon is ready to go back behind the wheel of the Ferrari 458 of Kessel Racing Team, to run the 5th race of Blancpain Endurance Series.
At Nurburgring Rigon, together with his two team-mates Zampieri and Gattuso, will try to score the first win of the season. But, given the high-level of competitiveness of the series, that won’t be so easy to get. For the talented Italian driver, it will be a return on a track which gave him so much satisfaction in all racing categories, even if it will be the first time there behind the wheel of a GT racing car.
The German weekend will start on Saturday with a one hour and a half long free practices session and pre-qualifying, before the official round scheduled on Sunday morning at 9.40, and the 3 hours long race which will start at 14.30.
“ I’m really excited and I just can’t wait for getting into the race again. The Nurburgring is a special track for me, as I got some important results there. I’ve been waiting for this race for such a long time and this will be my first time there behind the wheel of a GT car. As usual, there will be very little time to arrange everything and regain the pace, two months after the unlucky 24H of Spa.”, says Davide Rigon.
