Enzo Potolicchio Quotes:
“We had a great race at Interlagos last year. It was our third win of the season so I’m really looking forward to going back there this year with the 8Star Ferrari. AF Corse changed our driver lineup for this race and is bringing in Davide Rigon to replace Matteo Malucelli so it will be Davide Rigon, Rui Aguas and me. Rigon tested already with a pro car (LMGTE-Pro) and did really well. He’s won many championships and is an official Ferrari driver so we’re really looking forward to having him on the team. He’s really fast and Ferrari is really keen on winning the LMGTE-Am championship and that’s my goal … for the 8Star Ferrari to win the championship. Rui and I will be fast like we have all season so we’ll need Rigon to keep the car clean and under control. It’s a six-hour race so it will be very busy. We are still in the championship chase, third in points, and we beat the point leader the two races before Le Mans so we just need to continue to move forward, win races and win the championship.”
