Montermini/Schiro Back In GT Open For A New Fight At Portimao

Scuderia Villorba Corse and their #1 Ferrari 458 fly to Portugal for the second round of the International GT Open. The event is to be held from June 6 to 8 on a very demanding track such as the Algarve International Circuit located in Portimao. Entered in the Super GT class, the Italian team led by Raimondo Amadio and the crew formed by Andrea Montermini and Niccolò Schiro aim to a very important result to score valuable points for the standings after the podium finish clinched at the Nurburgring debut one month ago. The F1 driver and reigning GT Open champion from Modena and the 20-years-old 2012 European F3 Open champion will share the supercar from Maranello for the second time ever only and the whole team is expecting a very tough weekend as opponents are increasing both in quantity and quality.

"Our adventure in GT Open reaches one of the most beautiful and challenging track - says Amadio, Team Principal -. We have to start the right way because on Friday we will have additional practice sessions and so we can refine our work on the car. We aim to clinch precious points for the championship. The series will be long and exciting and making as less mistakes as possible will be crucial."

"We made better and better in the opening round of the championship at the Nurburgring - says Montermini - so the direction where to steer our work has become clearer. GT Open is a very tough international series and it is welcoming a lot of very competitive teams and drivers. Planning effective and functional strategies will be crucial as never before."

In Portimao twenty-one GT cars are expected to get on track starting from the two free practice sessions which will open the racing weekend on Friday, June 6. On Saturday qualifying sessions are scheduled at 9:45 and 11:45 GMT (10:45 and 12:45 in the rest of Europe) and race-1 will take place at 15:00 GMT (16:00 in the rest of Europe). On Sunday race-2 will start at 11:00 GMT (12:00 in the rest of Europe). Both races will be broadcasted live on www.gtopen.net (clicking on WEB TV). TV coverage for the GT Open, further strengthened this year, will count again on pan-European live coverage by Motors TV, with major national broadcasters also offering races live in key markets such as Italy (RaiSport2), United Kingdom (BT Sport), Spain (Teledeporte and Canal + Deportes), Portugal (Teledeporte), Turkey (Sport TV) and Central Europe (Digisport), among others.
