29.05.2024 – It will be at the Autodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari in Imola that Imperiale Racing will be looking for redemption in the Campionato Italiano Gran Turismo Sprint, now in its second race of the season.

The team confirms that two Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 EVO2s will line up at the start: the #54 will be driven by Robin Rogalski (POL) and Giuseppe Fascicolo (IT), who will compete in the PRO-AM class, while the #85 will be driven by Phillippe Denes (USA) and Jack Bartholomew (UK): they will be competing in the PRO category.

The start of the season at Misano was characterised by great speed expressed on the track, but some episodes considerably slowed down the race of both Lamborghinis of the Mirandola-based team, and in particular of the #85, which today is seventh in the championship standings. Ninth place in the PRO-AM standings for the #54 Lamborghini.

Imola is one of the most famous circuits in the world. Re-introduced to the Formula 1 circuit in 2020 after hosting several editions of the San Marino Grand Prix and the 1980 edition of the Italian Grand Prix, its 4,936 metres are characterised by a rather narrow racing surface made up of often medium-high speed corners. After the start the first hard breaking point is the one leading to the Variante Tamburello, then follows the fast Variante Villeneuve and then the Tosa. After the uphill towards the Piratella, the very fast Acque Minerali leads to the Variante Alta, from where the drivers race down towards the Rivazza and the finish line.

Elena Pignatti (Team Owner):
“We are all excited about the idea of racing again at Imola, one of the most beautiful tracks in Italy. The season debut at Misano was not what we dreamed it would be, but it nevertheless highlighted the great speed of our crews. Together we will build on the good things the Romagna track has taught us to give our best at Imola: we can’t wait!”.
