Edoardo Piscopo makes A1 Grand Prix debut at Sepang with Team Italy

Edoardo Piscopo will officially make his debut in the A1 Grand Prix of Nations on Friday, November 23, entering the Rookie Practice for his national team at Sepang. The Malaysian track hosts the third round of the 2008 series. Piscopo had his first taste of an A1GP car at Silverstone, taking the wheel of Piercarlo Ghinzani's Team Italy car in the collective pre-season testing. As the results proved to be successful, Edoardo will stay with Team Italy as a rookie driver also in Australia and New Zealand. Edoardo Piscopo competed in the Formula 3 Euro Series this year, and took part in the first World Series Renault winter tests.

Edoardo Piscopo : "I'm coming to Sepang with the only experience of an half-day test on Team Italy's car at Silverstone. These rookie practices represent an excellent way to develop my technical understanding and find a positive feeling with the car. I never seen the track, that is famed to be quite tough and technical to tame, but I'm not worried at all: I'll try to do the best I can in the 50 minutes available. Italy's regular driver, Enrico Toccacelo, is a good friend of mine and gave me many useful tips, the first being have a good physical preparation, since Sepang is very demanding. I'm going to enter two more rookie practices in Australia and New Zealand, and maybe then a sprint race. We'll see; many things will depend on the performance level I'll be able to reach".
