In 2017 Italian squad Ombra Racing will make the step to the overall category of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup and Total 24 Hours of Spa, by putting a full Pro line-up at the wheel of their Lamborghini Huracan GT3. Michele Beretta, Andrea Piccini and Stefano Gattuso will be the drivers defending Ombra Racing’s colours.
The names of the three Italian drivers should ring a bell with fans of GT3 racing. Stefano Gattuso is the 2015 Italian GT Champion, Michele Beretta is the reigning Silver Cup champion in the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup and Andrea Piccini won the 2012 Total 24 Hours of Spa.Andrea Piccini: "We certainly expect a difficult, but exciting challenge. The Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup is one of the most competitive championships around and I am proud of defending the colours of an all-Italian team. For Ombra Racing it will be a new challenge, but I am sure that with the experience they gathered last year and the preparation of the past winter, we can perform well from the start.”
