Spa-Francorchamps hosts the fifth round of 2018 Le Mans Cup

Andrea Piccini returns on track for the fifth round of 2018 Michelin Le Mans Cup 2018 at Spa-Francorchamps. Both he and Claudio Schiavoni, a coach in the Ferrari 488 Gt3 of the Kessel Racing team, have a strong desire for redemption after the difficult race of the Red Bull Ring last July, strongly influenced by bad weather. “We hope in a week-end from the weather a bit more stable than the last race in July – says Andrea Piccini – even if the Ardennes are famous for extreme climatic variability. We prepared well for this event, with a positive test day at the beginning of July, during which Claudio focused on learning the secrets of the 7 kilometers of a track as beautiful as it was demanding, while I worked on setting up the car. There are the conditions to do well and to bring home a good result; it would be doubly important, because it would also mean taking away points from the opponents and supporting the other Ferrari of the Kessel Racing team, led by my brother Giacomo and Sergio Pianezzola, now close to winning the title“. The day of Friday 21 September will be dedicated to free practice, while Saturday 22 will see the qualifying session from 11.35 to 11.50 and the competition will animate the two hours between 15.50 and 17.50.
