After the FIA WEC home race in Monza ten days ago, Matteo Cairoli is back on track this week for one of the “big events” of the season, the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps.
On the 7.3 kilometers of the Ardennes circuit, the Como-based driver therefore resumes his commitment in the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup which this year saw him take a victory in the inaugural round which took place in Monza last April, alternating behind the wheel of the Porsche 911 GT3-R of the Dinamic Motorsport team with Christian Engelhart and Klaus Bakler.
It will be together with the German and the Austrian that Cairoli will face this third round of the duration series, also valid for the Intercontinental GT Challenge, obviously with the aim of bringing home other points and getting back to the top of the standings he currently sees. and his teammates second only two points behind the leadership.
“Spa is a track on which I have good memories and which I have always liked since the first time I raced there – commented Cairoli – I face this 24 Hours with great enthusiasm. The only concerns are those relating to the weather. With Christian and Klaus we are ready to give our best. “
“The car is new, because after Adrien De Leener’s accident at Misano (in the GT World Challenge Sprint race) the chassis had to be replaced. We did a test there last week in Cremona and everything worked perfectly” .
“Being a race that gives a lot of points, the target is to win a lot of them to get back in front of the championship. There are 60 cars on the grid, with the best GT3 drivers and not only in the world, but we are ready to do battle. Mine the goal is to do better than last year, when I finished third in my debut ”.
