The Italian leg of the Michelin Le Mans Cup took place on Saturday in Monza. This was one of a series of international endurance car races inspired by the 24 Hours of Le Mans and organised by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO).
Cassioli will be present all season long for this prestigious competition alongside with the DKR Engineering team, winner of the last two seasons, and its two drivers, Marco Cencetti and Marcello Marateotto, who yesterday finished the race in fifth place.
The Michelin Le Mans Cup was created in 2016, through the efforts of ACO, the creator of this new competition which takes place over six rounds, with drivers and teams from all over the world competing for the title in ten GT3 class prototypes and 21 LMP3 class cars.
Five of the six events will be held alongside the European Le Mans Series while the Road to Le Mans will be the highlight of the season.
The Road to Le Mans will be the next stage in June, where teams and drivers will compete in two 55-minute races at the 14 km La Sarthe circuit, with the second race held on the morning of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the only opportunity in the world for GT3 and LMP3 competitors to compete in front of 250,000 motorsport enthusiasts.
Cassioli will accompany and support the team during all 6 instalments at the European level with its logo on the official clothing of the two drivers and the livery of the Norma M 30 Nissan that the two drivers will race in. This partnership confirms the great passion, drive and commitment of the company in supporting a dynamic and challenging sport such as motor racing which, like the Cassioli brand, is founded on strong and natural values, such as loyalty, courage, enthusiasm and healthy competition.
So let’s wish the best of luck to the DKR Engineering team and its drivers for the next stage of the championship, the “Road To Le Mans 2019”, which will take place on the Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans from 13 to 15 June 2019.
