Gianmaria Bruni is the new pilot of Porsche Motorsport. Their
35 years, the Italian rider starts a new stage in his sports career
after competing for a decade to defend the colors of Ferrari. After
weeks of negotiations, the circle has been closed in full weekend with
the confirmation of Alessandro Pier Guidi as the official driver of Ferrari in the
WEC and the arrival of Bruni Porsche. All in all, by the contractual ties that
had Bruni with the firm of Maranello, its debut with the signature colors of
Stuttgart may not take place until the month of July

Gianmaria Bruni signed a contract is quite juicy with
during the last season, every time that the signature Maranello tried to
shield your pilot before the first attempts of signing of Porsche. A
contract that now has consequences, and every time that prevents Gianmaria
Bruni debut with Porsche until July and that in addition to not being able to compete against the
official team Ferrari
in the WEC. In other words, Bruni will not be able to fight
against AF Corse in the World Endurance during this season and hence
your program will be limited to compete during the second half of the year in the IMSA
WeatherTech SportsCar Championship

After confirming the signing of Bruni, the Dr. Frank-Steffen
as Director of Porsche Motorsport, commented:
“We are delighted to welcome to Gianamaria Bruni, one of the
best drivers in GT of the world, to our team. It perfectly integrates into
our strong circle of official drivers
and will join us for the
second half of the season”
. However, Gianmaria Bruni have in your
winners three wins in GT at the 24 Hours of Le Mans (2008, 2012 and 2014),
two titles of champion in GTE-Pro in the WEC
(2013 and 2014) and victories in the 12
Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Spa.
