Villorba Corse With Balzan On Ferrari At Zandvoort

Scuderia Villorba Corse has hired Alessandro Balzan who will be alongside Filip Salaquarda behind the wheel of the Ferrari 458 in the third round of 2014 Blancpain Sprint Series to be held on July 6th at Zandvoort. Reigning Grand-Am champion in the GT category, the 33 year old Italian driver is replacing Andrea Montermini who will race at the Hungaroring in the concomitant weekend of the International GT Open where the former F1 driver from Modena tops the standings together with Niccolò Schirò after their stunning win at Jerez last Sunday. Since Zandvoort will not be the sole concomitance for Montermini, Villorba Corse and Balzan have reached a three-event agreement.

"It is nice to welcome Alessandro in the team - says Raimondo Amadio, Team Principal -; we will try to put him at ease in the Blancpain Sprint Series. I have always appreciated his skills and speed. He proved to be fast in every conditions and on any kind of car. I'm sure that together with Filip they will form a competitive pair who will bring us great results."

"I am delighted with this agreement - says Balzan -. Although it is only their first year in GT3, Amadio and his team have already shown their skills to work at the highest levels. Blancpain Sprint Series is a very tough championship, we need to be competitive right from the start. I will have the opportunity to race on a track and with a car-tire package that I got to know. This could represent a good advantage."
