Luck turning for Risi on home soil?

September 19, 2013


Fortune favors the brave – but for Risi Competizione their bravery hasn’t matched their fortune in any way in 2013.

If there was an incident somewhere on track this season, it seems the Risi Ferrari would be drawn to it like a magnet. Somebody in the Ferrari squad must have run over a black cat.

That misfortune came to a head at the last round at Baltimore when Olivier Beretta had nowhere to go and was caught up in the green flag carnage – badly damaging the Ferrari 458 Italia.

The car is back on track in Risi’s home state this weekend at the Circuit of The Americas and showing some strong speed going fastest of the GT cars today. Hopefully their fortune can match their speed today.

“We made a few changes to the car since the test here on Tuesday, and also changed the rear brakes and it all went very well today,” Matteo Malucelli said.

“The car was reliable and now we will see what everyone has to show tomorrow.”

Malucelli stopped the clocks at 2:04.506 to set the fastest time by .6 of a second.

Paul Miller Racing’s Porsche was second fastest today in GT ahead of the No.91 SRT Viper.

Other fast teams in other classes today included the No.551 HPD in P2 (fastest overall) and the Dyson Lola Mazda in P1 (2nd fastest overall). The 2013 P1 championship winners Muscle Milk Racing didn’t run today.
