Thomas in Le Mans Series on the Racing Box's Lms!

He will join Bobbi and Piccini to form an italian dream team!

Thomas Biagi joins Matteo Bobbi and Andrea Piccini on Racing Box's Lola B8/08. The news was in the air after last week's tests in Misano (Italy) and it is official now. The three pilots know each others very well because all of them met in FIA GT championship. Biagi became FIA GT world champion in 2003, at his debut, running with Bobbi. Biagi and Piccini fought for the leadership in 2007, when they both drove a Maserati Mc12. That time Biagi made it, winning the title in Zolder, the last race of the championship. They challenged each other also with the Lola cars projected for F3000 International. As you can see, there's planty of analogies. On april, 5th, Biagi and Bobbi will run together in Barcelona, the same circuit where they won their first race in FIA GT.

"I'm happy with this enormous chance - Biagi says - It looks like an amazing gift that I've been waiting for so long. The car gives me a lot of good feelings when I drive it, the team of Luca Canni Ferrari is unique and I'm very happy to work with Matteo Bobbi, who is more than a friend, and Andrea Piccini, that I respect a lot. The team is very prepared and our engineer, Andrea Adamo, needs no business card. My partnership will Michelin will continue. I couldn't ask of anything more. I met a special one like Ferdinando Geri who gave me his trust. Together with Canni Ferrari, he allowed three Italian pilots to run in such a championship and compete to win one of the most famous race in the world: Le Mans".

Mr Biagi will go back to a Braclay car six years after his last race with a S3000. The only thing left say is: Forza Azzurri!
