Eurov8series: Nicollo Mercatali

Niccolò Mercatali entered the roll of honor of the EUROV8SERIES. The Team BMW Dinamic driver performed without an hitch at Mugello, scoring a spectacular win in Race 2, the maiden one for him in the FG Group-promoted series.

It’s been a day to remember for the Italian, who has now clinched third place in standings. After his podium finish at Vallelunga, Mercatali has now raised the game and he’s ready for the second half of the season.

Mercatali stopped by to share thoughts about the start of the 2014 season.

Let’s talk about your win at Mugello, how was it like to climb at the top of the podium?

It’s been incredibly exciting. We didn’t expect such a stellar result although as soon as the car hit the track we realized that it had a stunning potential for the weekend. The team did a great job, enabling me to win at my home racetrack, but my fans have been a key element in my result.

The BMW M3 is new to you, what are your first impressions?

The BMW is exceptional! It perfectly fits my idea of a race car. The lack of electronic controls makes it even more challenging and fun to drive. It really shows the ability of drivers and teams. As we speak of teams, I also want to say thank you to Team BMW Dinamic. I’m with them since the Mini Challenge and I have a great relationship with them, especially with Team Principal Maurizio Lusuardi.

What is your most dangerous opponent?

The level of competition in the EUROV8SERIES is quite high, you might have to deal with some top-class racers like Kostka, Schiattarella or Sini. Some of them are much more experienced than me but I won’t back down. In fact, I’m even more motivated to push harder and harder.

What are your goals for the rest of the season?

Unfortunately I don’t have another car in my mirrors, but the budget issues. I strongly want to be in the game because racing is my life. I’ll do everything I could to line-up in Brno and in the two German races.
