Giancarlo Fisichella will be one of the official drivers of the Ferrari in the Blancpain GT Series. The ex-pilot of Formula 1 was confirmed during the past month as one of the members of the crew that will be flying the Ferrari 488 GT3 Kaspersky Motorsport in the Professional category of the Blancpain Endurance Cup. Fisichella will join forces with Marco Cioci and a third rider still to be confirmed, although different sources suggest that James Calado could complete the alignment of a team willing to to fight for the title all of the Blancpain GT Series in their mode of resistance.
“I’m glad to compete in the Blancpain GT Series. Have a program to lead in the Pro category next to Kaspersky, which is our main partner, it’s motivating to” stated Fisichella in statements to ‘Sportscar365’ recently. “To Ferrari and Kaspersky this championship is very important. She will compete alongside Marco Cioci and it is likely that the third pilot is also a pilot of Ferrari. This is the first time that Ferrari is involved in a real way in the Pro class and wants to do great things. I’m anxious to start this program. It is a championship with a fantastic organization that has 50 or 55 cars in each race”.
In this aspect, Giancarlo Fisichella finds great advantages in
the format of the Blancpain Endurance Cup, a category that brings together the
resistance tests of the championship: “there are Only cars in GT, which is
good because you can win in an absolute way. You don’t have to be
looking in the mirrors to let them pass to the prototypes. The majority of
manufacturers like Ferrari, BMW, Porsche or Audi are focusing on
this championship because it is important for them. There are more than 50 cars
each race, which makes it a championship reference to
the teams and riders. The Blancpain is one of the most important categories
As is logical, the competition will be high for Fisichella and his companions:
“Cbelieve that all the manufacturers are very strong. Audi has demonstrated its
strength, but also BMW or Mercedes, who has just won the 24 Hours
Spa. The manufacturers and the teams are very competitive thanks to the
‘Balance of Performance’. The ‘BoP’ is very well done and I think that
we have grounds to do so well. We are going to fight in the careers of
resistance and we are here to win. We will do everything possible to
to achieve the best results, try to win and score podiums“.
