Andrea Belicchi to play a key role as drivers’ coordinator

    
Cetilar Racing has unveiled at the AF Corse headquarter in Piacenza, its 2021 FIA WEC campaign. The team headed by Roberto Lacorte will compete again in the World Endurance Championship, the most important series for Sportscars and GTs, fielding the #47 Ferrari 488 GTE supported by AF Corse that will be marked by usual light blue/green livery.

The era of the the Dallara LMP2 – including four editions of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the European Le Mans Series challenge – comes to an end, whilst FIA WEC remains a past, present, future connection.

Roberto Lacorte, Giorgio Sernagiotto and youngster Antonio Fuoco – who grew up in the Ferrari Driver Academy and made his Cetilar Racing debut last January at the Daytona 24H – complete the line-up. Experienced Andrea Belicchi will play a key role as drivers’ coordinator.

Cetilar Racing will aim directly at the GTE Am World title, being aware to have a super competitive machinery, in the light of a consolidated partnership with AF Corse, the Amato Ferrari’s outfit linked to Maranello.

“Racing with Ferrari” will be a very emotional experience, such as entering for the fifth time the 24 Hours of Le Mans scheduled for 21th/22th August, the first one for Cetilar Racing with a GT car and Ferrari.

The 2021 season will start in one week with the official test at Barcelona on 6th/7th April, ahead of a six-round commitment. 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps will kick-off the calendar on early May, followed by 8 Hours of Portimão on 13th June. Monza will host a 6-hour race on 18th July.

After a one-month break the 89th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans will resume action, before the two intercontinental events, 6 Hours of Fuji on 26th September and 8 Hours of Bahrain on 20th November.


THEY SAID

ROBERTO LACORTE. We embark on a new challenge with big expectations. We’ll compete not only to compete, but to perform well and collect the results I think our team deserves. We have the best team and the best car in a charming livery that represents our country.


GIORGIO SERNAGIOTTO.
On the wave of the enthusiasm I can say there are great expectations. We have everything we need to reach our target, the drivers’ line-up, a great team and last but not least a very competitive car. We’ll do our best!



ANTONIO FUOCO
. I’ve just seen for the first time the car and I am very impressed by the new, aggressive livery. We hope to be aggressive on track as well. We are ready and I really am feeling very positive about our chances.
