This weekend Karol Basz will be back on track for the Italian Gran Turismo championship after the double podium finish on Mugello’s picky track. Fresh from his podium finish in the European karting round, the young Polish driver will return to Imola’s Enzo and Dino Ferrari Circuit for the fifth round of the Italian championship to continue the series of positive results at the wheel of the Antonelli Motorsport Team’s “black and orange” Lamborghini Huracan Super GT Cup.
It was on the track next to the Santerno River that Karol made his debut in GT competition with the car from the factory at Sant’Agata Bolognese by taking pole position and the podium in round-2 and five months later he is determined to better these results.
“The holidays are finally over after a very long break from the Lamborghini. We hope to repeat the results we achieved at Imola the last time by showing great speed. It would be wonderful to go even better. It’s a track that I like a lot,” commented Karol Basz.
“Karol is in a period of great form as he showed with his latest results in both the Lamborghini and kart with the podium finishes at Mugello and Sweden. We come back to Imola to better the results of the start of the season. Imola is a very tricky track and it will be vital that he concentrates on not making mistakes,” was the analysis of managers Giovanni Minardi and Alberto Tonti.
The motors will light up on Friday 8th with the free practice sessions of 45’ each in preparation for the two qualifying sessions (at 8.50am and 9.10am) scheduled for Saturday morning which will set up the starting grid for race-1 (at 2.35pm) and race-2 at 3.50pm Sunday.
