Scuderia Corse Continues Winning Ways at VIR

Leading the Am class from the drop of the green flag to the checkered, Squadra Corse captured its fourth-consecutive  Blancpain GT World Challenge America Am triumph of 2019 at Virginia International Raceway.
Martin Fuentes captured the pole position in the No. 7 Squadra Corse Ferrari 488 GT3 and led throughout his stint in the 90-minute event. Caesar Bacarella took over at the midway point and led the remainder of the race on the 17-turn, 3.27-mile circuit.


“The car was really balanced, even late in the race so I was able to run really quick times all the way to the finish,” said Bacarella. “I loved how the set up on the car was still so good with the tires past their best, it was a great job by the team all weekend!”



On Saturday, Bacarella started from the pole and took the lead in the first turn in the Hublot/Alpha Prime-sponsored Ferrari 488 GT3, with the No. 7 Ferrari leading the remainder of the event.



The two are looking to repeat their dominant performance from 2018, when they won nine of 10 races and the championship. They have now won 13 of the last 14 races, including five in a row.



“VIR is a really challenging track, but Squadra Corse gave us a magnificent car again this weekend and it feels great to get both of the wins this weekend,” said Fuentes. “I first came to VIR five years ago, and it took me several years of trying here before getting a win here so it feels great to have this kind of weekend. The team has been awesome and we had very strong race pace for both Caesar and me so I’m happy and already looking ahead to the next one!”




Squadra Corse will be looking to extend its streak in the next event on the Blancpain GT America schedule, at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario on May 17-19.
