GRT aiming for a podium in Misano
The first challenge of the 2017 season for Grasser Racing Team is set for this weekend at Misano, ad the Italian track hosts the first event of the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup.
The Austrian squad will be present with two cars as it will be at all the Blancpain GT Series races. Argentinian Ezequiel Perez Companc will share driving duties with Austrian Norbert Siedler, while the Lamborghini Factory Drivers Italian Mirko Bortolotti and German Christian Engelhart team up in car #63.
“We are very vell prepared for the 2017 season.” – Gottfried Grasser said – “The Blancpain GT Endurance and Sprint tests in March showed us that the new Pirelli tyre perfectly suits our Lamborghini Huracán GT3. The tyre really seems to help us a bit.” Nevertheless the task will not be easy. “Finding the correct setup will be difficult, as the tyre only works perfectly within a very small temperature window. Our drivers will have to get there step by step.” – Grasser added.
