30.06.2021 – The engine of the Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 Evo #63 run by Imperiale Racing is about to roar again this coming weekend at the Circuit of Mugello for the second round of the Italian GT Endurance 2021 Championship. The car will be driven by Andrea Amici (ITA), Alberto Di Folco (ITA) and Stuart Middleton (GB).
After the podium obtained in Pergusa’s opener, the drivers of the Mirandola-based team are much awaited in Tuscany that will host the second act of this challenge on a unique setting in the world, the Mugello hills, in what is considered one of the best circuits in Italy. The very long pit-straight will allow cars to exploit the slipstream to then attempt spectacular overtaking moves at the San Donato corner. The first part of the circuit goes up-hill and ends with the Casanova-Savelli and the extraordinary Arrabbiate corners, which are maybe the most spectacular spots of the whole lap and lead into the driven closing sector up to the Bucine left-hander that rejoins the main straight.
The racing action of the weekend will start with the two free practice sessions on Friday at 11:40 and 16:30, while the third session will be on Saturday at 9:00. Qualifying, with the usual three sessions and classification drawn according to the overall combined time, will be on Saturday at 13:55. The three-hour-long race will be on Sunday at 14:00.
All the stages of the long race on Sunday will be available live at www.acisport.it/CIGT, Facebook @cigranturismo @acisporttv and will be shared by @imperialeracing. The action will also go live on TV on ACI Sport TV (CH 228 SKY), while RAI Sport (CH 58 DTT) will cover the event with a schedule that will be announced shortly on the webpage of the championship.
Luca Del Grosso (Team Manager):
“We have good sensations for Mugello, which is a splendid and very technical track. The circuit requires a fast and reactive car, that is also gentle on tyres as the weekend is going to be very hot. Drivers will have to use their experience to be fast and careful with car management. As usual, details will make the difference therefore a great team effort will be needed to fight for the top. I am certain that our guys will give their 100% inside and outside the track to get a strong result”.
