ADRIA NEXT FOR EMANUELE NASPETTI IN PORSCHE CARRERA CUP ITALIA

Adria will host the second race weekend of the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia this weekend, with Emanuele Naspetti amongst the main players in the Series following his fourth-place finish in the previous rounds.

Three weeks on from Imola, the former Formula 1 driver can look forward to strong competition from the rest of the field on the demanding 2.702 km circuit.

"With 24 cars on the track, it will be increasingly difficult to stay ahead," said Naspetti. "For me, it will be another first as I have never driven in Adria with the Porsche Carrera Cup before. But I'm looking forward to the challenges. Together with GDL Racing, we have prepared some techniques to adapt the car's behaviour to the circuit's tortuous layout and we are confident of doing well."

Two free practice sessions will take place on Saturday (09:30 and 11:50) followed by qualifying at 15:25, carried out in the new format taken from Formula 1. Only 15 of the best drivers from the first qualifying session will go through to the pole position fight in session two.

The Porsche Carrera Cup Italia rounds three and four will take place on Sunday, with race one starting at 09:50 and race two at 15:10. Both rounds will last twenty-eight minutes and one lap, and will be shown live on the Nuvolari TV channel.
