Monza’s official tests open the season of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europa
- Two test days for the teams and drivers taking part in the ninth edition of the one-make series for Huracán Super Trofeos scheduled on April 21-23
- Many are the young debuting drivers, among whom are Jonathan Cecotto and Mikael Grenier
- The Pro and Pro-Am champions of the Super Trofeo Middle East will be also racing at Monza
Such as for example the new Pro crew fielded by Imperiale Racing: at his first absolute debut behind the wheel of a Huracan Super Trofeo there will be Jonathan Cecotto, 17-year-old Venezuelan, son of the motorcycle and F.1 legend Johnny Alberto, who has joined the field of GT cars after some experience in karting and F.4. After the two test days, Cecotto immediately drew attention to himself by entering the top five list of the fastest times. Throughout the racing season, there will be a guarantee beside him: Vito Postiglione, who did an excellent 2016 season in the Super Trofeo.
After the positive experience of the Super Trofeo Middle East, also the pairing of Konrad Motorsport formed by Hendrik Still and Paul Scheuschner will be participating in the European series for the first time, in the Pro-Am category.
Finally, following the Middle Eastern championship introduced by Lamborghini in Abu Dhabi and Dubai this year, also Davide Roda will be debuting in Europe with the team Antonelli Motorsport. At Monza, this driver shared the cockpit of a Huracan Super Trofeo with Kikko Galbiati. The latter, after drawing attention to himself during some practice sessions in the past season, he was one of the fastest drivers during Monza’s test sessions.
The team Antonelli also fielded another skillful duo, who will be participating in the Super Trofeo Europe in the Pro class: Loris Spinelli, an expert of the one-make series, and the 24-year-old Canadian, Mikael Grenier. In the four practice sessions, the pairing of Antonelli Motorsport set the second fastest time overall (1’47”480), behind Navarro/Brichè of MN Development, who were the fastest with 1’47”387.
