Auto GP ready for debut in Austria
Everything is set for the sixth round of the 2014 Auto GP series, scheduled for the coming weekend at the Red Bull Ring venue. The Enzo Coloni-promoted championship will be lining-up for the first time at the 4.326 km Austrian track.
The fight for the title will be as hot as ever with championship leader Kimiya Sato fielded by Euronova Racing in an effort to increase his 151 point toll and to regain the podium. An achievement that he missed in Race 2 at Imola after dominating Race 1. Kevin Giovesi (FMS) and Markus Pommer (Super Nova International) are eager to turn tables on their Japanese rival as they lay tied in second place with 115 points.
Tamas Pal Kiss is set to switch teams in Austria. After winning at Le Castellet with Zele Racing, he decided to join Virtuosi UK, the same team he had the chance to run for in the preseason test at Jerez de la Frontera in 2013.
Tamas will drive alongside team-mate Andrea Roda, who is trailing him in standings. Michela Cerruti (Super Nova International) will also try to be back on top after scoring a sensational win at Imola. The home colours of Zele Racing will be defended also by 23-year-old Swissman Christof von Grünigen, who made it to a stunning front row position at his debut race in Monza.
After his first Auto GP outing with Euronova Racing, Salvatore De Plano will switch to FMS for the occasion. On the other hand, Vincenzo Sospiri will have Shinya Michimi who debuted at Monza. Back for their own operation, Michele La Rosa (MLR71 by Euronova) and Giuseppe Cipriani (Ibiza Racing) will be hitting the Red Bull Ring.
