The moment of truth

This weekend will be the last for the 2010 International GT Open season and Marco Frezza is ready for the challenge. His weapon: the usual Ferrari 430 GT3 of the Swiss Kessel Racing team. His team-mate: again Niki Cadei. The theatre: Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.

"As Spa-Francorchamps, this is one of my favourite circuits," the Italian driver explains. "A technical and fast track, where I've always found myself well." Don't forget that the Belgian track was the one where Marco opened his win totale with his first victory in this category, followed by two others, the latest one in his home race in Monza.

The aim is set to the top goal: the GTS-class title. Leading the standings is still his season rivale, Jean-Philippe Dayrault, with 76 points, ahead of Marco's team- mates, Livio-Bontempelli, with 68, and Frezza very close with 66. The game is still open.

And the two races in Spain will be decisive. Marco's attitude before the weekend is aggressive but sensible: "Me and Niki will do an exceptional job, but so far I'm just thinking to the race. The best I can do myself is trying to get the top result in the race. Then we'll do the calculation."

The Catalan race will be an exceptional event, with as much as 42 entrants (the races will be divided between Super GT and GTS categories) and some big names as wild cards: we remember among the other ones the multiple rally champion Sebastien Loeb and former Formula One driver Nelsinho Piquet. Those drivers, taking part just to this race, won't be able to take nor block points for the championship, thus securing a fair battle.
