Faulkner, Petrobelli and Rosa with GPC Squadra Corse at Le Mans Series 2008

11.02.2008: Faulkner, Petrobelli and Rosa with GPC Squadra Corse at Le Mans Series 2008

GPC Squadra Corse reached an agreement with the drivers Niki Faulkner, Giacomo Petrobelli and Gabrio Rosa for the Le Mans Series 2008. They will share the drive of a F430 GT2 Ferrari.

Faulkner, 32 years old British, debuted in 1995 in the Renault Clio Cup UK. In the first years of his career he mainly took part to races on close wheel cars, until the move to Formula Palmer Audi in 2002 whereby he obtained a victory, a pole position and two podiums.

Petrobelli, 32 years old Italian, began his agonistic career in 2002 with karting and he raced on karts until 2004. In 2005 he took part to the Formula Ford championship and last year to the Formula Palmer Audi.

Rosa, 53 years old Italian, has a long career behind the wheel of GT cars, with an outstanding victory in the 24h of Le Mans 2001 in the GT class.
