Andrea Piccini in Magione For The Italian GT With Ebimotors

The debut of the Dams team's Lamborghini in the international FIA GT championship with the consolidated drivers: Andrea Piccini and Jean Denis Deletraz, will be in a few months.

Therefore, the Ebimotors Team has decided to take advantage of Andrea Piccini's free schedule and has asked him to participate in a few races for the Italian GT championship on board the Porsche 996 GT3 RSR. Porsche Haus of Milan has given this car to the team from Ceremenate (Como-Italy).

The Tuscan driver has enthusiastically accepted their offer and this new challenge. Luca Riccitelli will be his team-mate in the upcoming race in Magione. The agreement between the two will probably be extended to other races that are compatible with Piccini's FIA GT schedule.

Andrea Piccini

"When the Ebimotors Team made me the offer to race in Magione, I immediately accepted with great eagerness. The Magione race will be my debut in the Italian GT championship and I'm very happy that I will have the chance to start this experience with a well prepared and competitive team. I have never driven the Porsche 996 GT3 RSR but I participated in the 6 hours of Vallelunga with a similar car; the Porsche Supercup and conquered the victory in our category. Therefore, I don't think I'll have any problems adapting to the car. My objective to help my team-mate Riccitelli (who is presently in third place) fight for the leading positions in our category: N-GT.

Our most fierce opponents will be without a doubt the leaders Chiesa and Kessel on board the Ferrari 360 Modena.

They will be two very intense and exciting races. I will be my best to bring Ebimotors and Porsche Haus to the top."
