Gabriele Lancieri's Debut in Valencia is Coming Up Soon.

The second round of the FIA GT championship scheduled on April 18th in Valencia is coming up soon. Gabriele Lancieri will make his debut on Graham Nash Motorsport's Saleen S7-R.His team-mates will be the Italian Paolo Ruberti and the Spanish driver Jesus Diez Villarroel. This isn't however a first for Gabriele's in this category. In 2003, the driver from Imola participated in the 24 hours of Spa (4th in the classification) and in the Monza race (7th overall) with the English team Lister.

Gabriele Lancieri

"I must admit that I really can't wait for the start of this competition. I got a chance to get to know this track in the year 2000 when I did a test session with the Durango team in the F3000.

This knowledge will compensate for the fact that I have never driver this car before. I'll need some time and I'll need to run a few kilometres to familiarize myself with the Saleen .Nonetheless, I am confident about it all. I had never seen a Lister car before last year and yet I was immediately comfortable with the car (ex: the steering wheel on the right side of the Lister was a problem to overcome). I hope the car turns out to be reliable and will allow us to finish the race."
