14.09.2023 – Imperiale Racing is ready to return to the track with its Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 Evo in the third round of the Italian Gran Turismo Endurance Championship, which will take place at Monza this weekend, after the summer break.

Car #54 will be entrusted to Kevin Gilardoni (CH), Stuart Middleton (UK) and Raul Guzman (MEX), who secured the second position in qualifying at Mugello. Car #16, also competing in the PRO-AM category where it currently holds the third position in the standings, just three points behind the leader, will be driven by Mahaveer Raghunathan (IN), who was unavailable at Mugello for personal reasons, Jack Bartholomew (UK), second in Pro-Am at Mugello, and Giuseppe Fascicolo (IT), called in to replace Miguel Garcia (PAR), who for reasons unrelated to either the driver or the team will not be able to be on the track for the weekend. The Paraguayan driver will follow the race from home, wishing his colleagues the best possible result in such an important round. Fascicolo, who races with Imperiale Racing in the Italian Gran Turismo Sprint Championship, has enthusiastically welcomed this opportunity.

The Monza National Autodrome is one of the most famous in the series, with its 5,793 meters making it one of the fastest tracks in the world. The track has hosted the Italian Formula 1 Grand Prix 73 times, and its curves are etched in the minds of motorsport enthusiasts. After the main straight, drivers approach the first braking point, the First Chicane, which is connected to the Roggia Chicane by Curva Grande. After the two Lesmo corners, drivers go through the Serraglio before braking for the Ascari Chicane, then the Parabolica completes the lap.

Luca Del Grosso (Team Manager):
“It is a great pleasure to return to racing after the break and to do so on an iconic track like Monza. The tests we conducted at Vallelunga and Mugello were very positive, and both the drivers and the team did an excellent job, gaining good insights, although aware that the setup requirements at the Temple of Speed are unique compared to any other circuit. We will give it our all, as always, to translate those sensations into on-track results. The #54 crew is eager for redemption after the unfortunate outcome at Mugello and is aiming for a victory to keep their championship hopes alive, while the #16, coming off a splendid second place in Pro-Am at Mugello, is looking to continue on this momentum. We are ready and cannot wait to hit the track”.
