FFF Racing Team is justifiably bullish about its chances of winning the second annual FIA GT World Cup at the 63rd Macau Grand Prix (17-20 November).
With factory support from Lamborghini and world-class Squadra Corse drivers Mirko Bortolotti and Andre Couto spearheading its charge, FFF Racing believes victory is achievable on the streets of Macau, where it will lock horns with many of the planet’s top teams, drivers and manufacturers.
The Pescara, Italy-based squad is riding a wave of confidence into the FIA GT World Cup, which rounds off a lucrative bi-continental campaign that yielded plenty of race wins and podium finishes in both Europe and the Far East, as well as a championship title in the GT Asia Series.
Looking forward to what promises to be an exciting week in Macau, Giorgio Sanna, Head of Motorsport of Automobili Lamborghini, said: “Lamborghini Squadra Corse is really proud to be competing in such a demanding and exciting race like the Macau Grand Prix.
“It represents the Huracan GT3’s first appearance in the FIA GT World Cup and we are confident that FFF Racing Team, which has already won the GT Asia Series with our racecar, will do its best to be a top protagonist in this fascinating race. I’m also confident that the driver line-up, which consists of Lamborghini factory driver Mirko Bortolotti and Macau specialist Andre Couto, could make the difference on-track.”
FFF Racing Team Owner, Sean Fu Songyang, added: “This is a very exciting time for us, having just won the 2016 GT Asia Series in only our second year of international competition. As we will now be representing Lamborghini in the FIA GT World Cup at the Macau Grand Prix with two Lamborghini Huracan GT3s and world-class drivers, Mirko Bortolotti and Andre Couto, we anticipate a win.
“All involved with FFF Racing are in good spirits and have worked hard to get the cars ready for this event. It is always very challenging around the tight Guia street circuit for these incredibly powerful cars, but with the support of Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Roger Dubuis, Aurea and all of our sponsors, as well as Lamborghini’s number one factory driver Mirko and local hero Andre, we are ready for the fight.”
A pair of FIA GT World Cup free practice sessions will be held at 12.30 on Thursday (17 November) and 10.40 on Friday (18 November), while qualifying is scheduled for 14.55 later that same day.
The 12-lap FIA GT World Cup Qualification Race will commence at 12.10 on Saturday (19 November), with another 18-lap contest at 12.55 on Sunday (20 November).
