Following on from the season opener at Silverstone fine tuning has now been completed. As from this moment RBImmo Racing will be appearing as iPOS Racing. iPOS is an international provider of infotainment-systems relating to Point of Sales. iPOS is looking to use the FIA GT championship as a marketing platform for the further development of their brand. To add additional strength to these new ambitions and as from Monza, the team is calling on the services of Rob Schirle, who will be taking on the function of team manager. Schirle was previously involved with such teams as Russian Age Racing.

As in the United Kingdom Jos Menten and Andrea Piccini will be defending the colours of the Austrian Saleen team in Monza. Notwithstanding the disappointing result Menten and Piccini are full of hope for this second meeting of the season. During the FIA GT test days the Saleen S7-R proved its worth on the Italian asphalt. All the same Menten remains realistic: "We mustn't forget that this power beast is a few years old. Battling it out for the top five is impossible, but this time around we do want to fight it out to win some points", a pugnacious Menten comments.
