Encouragement for Felix Serralles and the people in Puerto Rico
In the wake of Hurricane Maria, which has severely hit Puerto Rico, all drivers entering the 2017 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup season finale at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya gathered at the front of the starting grid for a group picture. They got together to send their thoughts and show their support to the island during this ordeal and as a sign of encouragement for Felix Serralles (#88 AKKA ASP Mercedes-AMG GT3), the first ever driver from Puerto Rico racing in our championship, who is grateful for the backing of his fellow drivers.
“I was racing at Nuerburgring so I did not know what was going on. And when I got back I could not reach my family. It was just terrible. Thankfully they are OK. Please spread the word and help as much as possible. My country is completely destroyed and a lot of people have died.” Serralles’ native land, which has a population of 3,4 Million people, is suffering the worst disaster in its history. Maria led to a total, island-wide power outage, and severe shortages of food, water, and other supplies.
If you like to show your support Felix Serralles recommends the following organisations: Youcaring.com/rickymartin, Helpmedonate.org, Greenforpuertorico.org, Savethechildren.org/maria or Unicefusa.org
