The team Cetilar Villorba Corse will be back at the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year: the venetian squad, supported by our brand Cetilar® as main sponsor, has been included by the organizers of the ACO Le Mans among the teams admitted to the legendary french race which 86th edition, valid as second round of the Endurance World Championship, will be held on 16-17 June.
After the exciting debut in 2017, when the team led by Raimondo Amadio took an extraordinary ninth place overall, seventh of the LMP2 class, the Italian Spirit of Le Mans project is going on successfully, with again in the role of first promoter the driver Roberto Lacorte, Vice President and CEO of PharmaNutra SPA.
Once again Cetilar Villorba Corse will be the only Italian team present at Le Mans in the prototypes categories. At the start in the LMP2 class with the brand new looked Dallara P217 number 47, the team will tackle the complete European Le Mans Series championship 2018 which will start at Le Castellet on April 15th and will also make a stop at Monza on May 13th.
“When expectations are high, it makes waits seem longer, so there was a kind of suspense within the team”, Lacorte said first. “To be accepted at the start has an even greater value this year, because it is a crucial confirmation for the team. Both for how well and how much we have worked and demonstrated so far, and because we expect an even more aggressive and competitive line up. It was important to be able to be at the start of Le Mans once again, we wanted it a lot and we are proud to have achieved this first goal”.
