Biagi to compete in the Mobil 1 Supercup
Following the positive testing sessions held in the past few weeks at Barcelona and Hockenheim, Thomas Biagi reached an agreement with the American licence holder team MOMO-Megatron to compete in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup 2014.
The Italian driver will be behind the wheel of the number 23 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Type 991, and will therefore have the same number he had in 2003’s FIA GT where he won at the debut in Barcelona and dominated the whole season securing the title. The very same Spanish track will be housing the opening round of the prestigious single-branded championship of the Stuttgart’s firm next 11 May.
Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is a top class championship, one in which I still have loads to learn. I enjoyed driving the car since the beginning even if I still have to familiarize completely with the rear overhanging engine. The 991 is very appealing both aesthetically and from the driving viewpoint, I’d say that it was love at first sight. – commented Biagi.
