Cerruti joins GE-Force
After spending the 2016 season developing the Romeo Ferraris-built Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR, Michela Cerruti will enter the second event of the 2017 TCR International Series that takes place this weekend at the Bahrain International Circuit, as a support event to the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
The Italian female racer will join Davit Kajaia – who claimed the Guilietta TCR’s maiden victory in Rustavi’s Race 1 – and Du šan Borković in the third GE-Force’s car that was driven by Shota Abkhazava during the series’ opener in Georgia.
“I felt immense joy, even though I was not driving. It has been very emotional to celebrate a victory in a different role. The Giulietta is my baby; I played a part in its birth and growth, and I drove it when this kind of result was definitely beyond our hopes,” said Cerruti, who was the first driver to reach the podium with the car, finishing second in the TCR Middle East series at Dubai in January. “After my podium in Dubai and the outstanding performance of Davit and Du šan in Georgia, I can’t wait to be at the wheel myself once again although, for the time being, we are considering it as a one-off appearance. But I will try and do my best to help the team to score more points in the championship,” Michela concluded.
