A "Heavy Weight" Challenge For Matteo Bobbi in Brno

The second largest city in the Czech Republic; Brno has an historic track that has brought luck to Matteo Bobbi before. In fact team-mates Bobbi & Biagi won their fourth consecutive victory on this track last year. The same year they were crowned world champions.

This year, Matteo's car will have 80kg of ballast. This handicap weight will be a challenge especially during the qualifications. But, the car has proven to be competitive regardless of this heavy weight during the race session in the past.

The track has many uphill / downhill sections and a sequence of fast and slow corners. The track is 5403 m long.

Matteo Bobbi

"On Sunday, I will be racing on a track that I particularly like and that I have fond memories of. It will be hard for us during the qualifications due to the 80 kg of ballast and so I'm assuming that the Saleens will be the fastest. However, during the race things will change. Gabriele and I are going to take advantage of the car's speed and reliability. We are also going to count on our excellent race strategies that Scuderia Italia has come up with. We are 3 points behind the leaders in this championship but we won't be counting during this race. The championship is long and we need to take it one race at a time."
