The Autodromo Internacional do Algarve will host next weekend the last event of 2018 Michelin Le Mans Cup. On the 4692 meters of the circuit of Portimao, Andrea Piccini and Claudio Schiavoni have important goals to achieve at the wheel of the Ferrari 488 GT3 (Kessel Racing). The duo is actually in the third place in the overall standings, 13 points behind Maurizio Mediani and Christoph Ulrich. “In one hand, we must absolutely defend the third position in the championship, which for us would undoubtedly already be a positive result – said Andrea Piccini – while on the other, even if 13 points will not be easy to recover, we will push until the end trying to overtake Maurizio Mediani and Christoph Ulrich to conquer the second position in the standings. Claudio has grown a lot during the season and this means that we will have what it takes to aim for a good result in the final race“.
The current ranking of the Michelin Le Mans Cup: Giacomo Piccini and Sergio Pianezzola 112 points; Christoph Ulrich and Maurizio Mediani 77, Andrea Piccini and Claudio Schiavoni 64, Marco Cioci and Piergiuseppe Perazzini 60.
