Frezza towards Nurburgring

The second race of International GT Open 2010 will bring Marco Frezza on one of the most legendary and historical tracks in Europe: Nurburgring. Together with hosting the Formula One Grand Prix, the German track is one of the most important ones also for the GT races, even if for GT Open it's the first time on this circuit.

So, for the Italian driver, as for many other rivals in this category, this weekend will mark the first time ever with GT cars on the Nurburgring track. Frezza only raced here in single seaters with Formula Renault 2.0.

"Obviously it will be completely different," he explains. "Having raced there with the open wheels only, I will practically have to learn the track again. But the results obtained in the first race of the championship in Valencia can only make me confident for the track comeback."

With a second place in the first race of the season, Marco Frezza is in fact fifth in the overall classification and second in GTS class. In this event, too, he will be racing with a Ferrari 430 GT2 of the Kessel Racing team, together with the Portuguese Pedro Couceiro.

The two races of the Nurburgring weekend are scheduled on Saturday at 14:00 (70 minutes) and Sunday at 13:10 (50 minutes), with live TV coverage on Nuvolari channel (SKY 218).
