...with Postiglione-Basz, Mantovani-Venditti and Fabri.




 
A little bit more than one week is left to go before the opener of Monza and Imperiale Racing confirmed its participation to the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe 2018 with the objective of playing the role of protagonist in the title quest.


The Italian outfit, after the positive 2017 campaign, defined the drivers that will lead the three Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO on track. Car #44 will be driven by the PRO lineup made by Vito Postiglione (ITA) and Karol Basz (PL), the #53 will compete in Pro-AM, with Massimo Mantovani (ITA) and Davide Venditti (ITA) behind the wheel, while Hans Fabri (NL) will contest the Lamborghini Cup on the #88 challenger.



Vito Postiglione, class 1977, has been confirmed for the third year running in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe after the two third places obtained in 2016 and 2017, during which he has been among the absolute protagonists for the win. His experience and talent on GT cars are unquestionable, as shown by his rich prize list.



 Second in the Lamborghini World Finals 2016 in Valencia, he won the Italian GT 2013 Championship, was third in 2016 and in Porsche Carrera Cup Italia 2012, in Renault Megane Sport Cup 2000 and in the Ferrari Challenge – Trofeo Pirelli 2007, when he also won the World Finals Ferrari.



Karol Basz will wear Imperiale Racing’s colors for the first time and will share driving duties on the #44 car with Postiglione. The 27 years old (next November) Polish driver made his debut on GT cars in the Italian GT Championship – Super GT Cup 2017 where he has been shining on a Lamborghini Huracán, claiming one pole position and three podiums.



He started his racing career at 14 years of age and obtained several wins and satisfactions on karts. Among these, the wins at the Final Cup WSK 2016, that at the CIK-FIA World KF Championship 2015, WSK Champions Cup 2014 and CIK-FIA International Super Cup 2013.



Massimo Mantovani, class 1953, will be at his second season with Imperiale Racing in the Super Trofeo Europe after an exciting 2017 ended in Imola with the spectacular win and the second place at the World Finals in AM.



He was second in the Italian GT Championship – Lamborghini Huracàn Cup 2015 with Lamborghini and took part in the Italian GT Championship – Super GT Cup 2016, and his career is full of important results. During his long commitment in the Ferrari Challenge – Shell Cup, from 1999 to 2010, he was third in 2006, 2008 and 2009, ending the World Finals of 2008 in second place and those of 2009-2010 in third.




Mantovani has also taken part in the Trofeo Maserati World Series 2014 where he won the Pirelli Twin Drivers Cup, and then he competed in the International GT Open and International GT Sprint Series 2011, 2012 and 2013 on a Ferrari 458 Italia GT3, while he has been a protagonist of the FIA GT3 European Championship 2008 on an Aston Martin DBRS9.



Davide Venditti will complete the pairing of the #53 challenger. He will be at the absolute debut with Imperiale Racing and on GT cars. Class 1995, Venditti made his motorsport debut last year in Italian F.4 Championship Powered by Abarth, coming to the fore among the rookies scoring an important Rookie third place in his maiden race in Misano.



Hans Fabri, 58 years, will contest his first complete season on the #88 car. Fabri made his debut in motorsport at 55 years of age, competing in the closing round of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux 2015 in AM in Zandvoort, scoring two third places. Last year he switched to the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe for the two closing rounds of the season and scored a good top ten finish in Imola’s race two.



Giorgio Ferro (Imperiale Racing, Direttore Motorsport)
:

“Imperiale Racing confirms its presence in the Super Trofeo Europe giving also some continuity to its policy of combining the talent of youngsters to the professionalism of more experienced drivers.




The presence of a Master like Vito Postiglione will set once again the benchmark for the whole team, and in particular for his young co-equiper Karol Basz. We will work on this solid base being focused race after race as we have done in the past season, well aware that this is the only way we can fight for the highest result.”



Imperiale Racing will get on track from April 20th to 22nd for the opening round of the season at the Autodromo Nazionale of Monza (ITA).
