AUGUSTO SCALBI DEBUTS IN F.3 WITH CORBETTA

07/12/2006 - The Corbetta Competizioni Team practiced today at Varano de' Melegari with the 16 years old driver Augusto Scalbi, F.Renault 1600 champion, that also took part to the last race of the F. Renault 2000 championship.

The talented driver, observed by Giancarlo Minardi, completed 115 laps on an insidious track because of the falling rain. Scalbi drove by keeping a very good pace without any mistake and his best performance, though obtained with used slick tyres on a very wet circuit, was an excellent 1'05''81.

Augusto Scalbi
"I am really enthusiastic about this car, despite that was my first time at the wheel of this single seater and such critic weather conditions did not help. I was so impressed by the aerodynamics, brakes and the engine. It is a very professional car. The feeling with Corbetta Competizioni Team is great, the guys made me feel very comfortable and all the help given by engineers allowed me to improve lap by lap. I hope to take part in the 2007 championship from the first race."

Angelo Corbetta (Corbetta Competizioni, Team Principal)
"Augusto had a very positive debut and without any fear he rapidly adapted to the single seater. He proved to be very competitive even in such critic weather conditions. I am pretty sure that with the right training he could be one of the protagonists of Italian F.3 championship. The telemetry is quite clear. My compliments to Augusto".
