TR3 Racing and Squadra Corse Sonoma Bound

TR3 Racing and Squadra Corse Sonoma Bound

06.06.2019: Squadra Corse Racing with Ferrari and TR3 Racing with Ferrari will be looking to continue their winning ways in Blancpain GT World Challenge America competition this weekend with a pair

Squadra Corse Racing with Ferrari and TR3 Racing with Ferrari will be looking to continue their winning ways in Blancpain GT World Challenge America competition this weekend with a pair of events at Sonoma Raceway.



Squadra Corse rejoins the World Challenge America action with the No. 7 Garage Italia Ferrari 488 GT3 of Martin Fuentes and Caesar Bacarella. The two drivers swept both weekends at Circuit of The Americas and Virginia International Raceway, before electing not to compete in the most recent weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.



“Sonoma is a very technical place, which I love,” Fuentes said. “It is tight; hopefully it will be good for us. I love this weekend’s event, and I’m looking forward to keeping that streak going. I’m confident that Ferrari and Squadra Corse will give us a good race car.”



Both graduates of Ferrari Challenge competition, Fuentes and Bacarella have now won 12 of their last 13 races, and hold a commanding 49-point lead in their bid for a second consecutive Am championship.



“I’ve been to Sonoma once before, and I like the track,” Baracella said. “It has its challenges, especially with the elevation changes. Martin and I are looking forward to the weekend and we hope to extend our lead in the championship. We are also going to race in the 24 Hours of Spa [on July 27-28], so this is also a great test before we head out to Belgium.”



TR3 Racing started the season by winning the opening event at Austin’s Circuit of The Americas, and will enter the California wine country weekend with a brand-new driver lineup, with Guy Cosmo and Patrick Byrne co-driving the No. 31 Torxen Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo.



Cosmo’s last race at Sonoma was a top-10 finish in a Grand-Am Rolex Series Daytona Prototype in 2006, but the California wine country circuit played a major role in his career.



“It was the site of my breakthrough win in the Star Mazda series that ultimately led to claiming that championship in 2002, so Sonoma has always been a favorite of mine,” said Cosmo, who has raced the Ferrari F430, 458GTLM, and 458GT3 as well as having driven a Ferrari F1 car in testing.



“I love the elevation and technical character of Sonoma; it’s a fantastic and challenging racetrack. The competition will be strong, but we will be armed with a great team and car in TR3 Racing and the Ferrari 488 GT3. (TR3 Racing principal) Gregory Romanelli is an impressive young man who’s assembled a very strong team with proven success in this very series.”


 
“I am both honored and excited to be racing with TR3 in the Ferrari 488 GT3, especially co-driving with my favorite teammate, Guy Cosmo,” Byrne said. “"I have a long family history with Ferrari and am involved with them on many levels, from coaching to racing both new and vintage cars.



Ferrari is a brand I am always anxious to race in any meaningful capacity. I really like Sonoma and have had good luck there in the past racing in both the Maserati Trofeo and in vintage Alfa Romeos, along with several GT3 and GT4 testing programs. I can't wait to get back out there and drive this great car with such a strong team behind us.”



Qualifying will be held on Saturday at 10:50 a.m. (all times PT) for Race 1, followed at 11:10 a.m. with qualifying for Race 2. Saturday’s opening race is set for 2:45 p.m., with the final race on Sunday at 11:15 a.m.


Both races and qualifying will be streamed live on gt-world-challenge-america.com, with Sunday’s contest live on the CBS Sports Network.
