Ferrari Challenge Star Joins Squadra Corsa for Watkins Glen

Ferrari Challenge Star Joins Squadra Corsa for Watkins Glen

28.08.2019: Successful Ferrari Challenge competitor Mark Issa will make his Blancpain GT World Challenge America debut this weekend when he joins Martin Fuentes in the No. 7 Squadra Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3.

Successful Ferrari Challenge competitor Mark Issa will make his Blancpain GT World Challenge America debut this weekend when he joins Martin Fuentes in the No. 7 Squadra Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3.
 



Carrying the colors of Hublot and Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale,  team is undefeated in 2019 competition, winning every event it has entered. Fuentes won races at Austin’s Circuit of The Americas, Virginia International Raceway and Sonoma Raceway to open a nearly-insurmountable 99-point lead in the standings.
 


Fuentes swept all three weekends the team has entered this season. Fuentes holds a nearly-insurmountable 99-point lead in AM competition.
 


Issa is a competitor in Ferrari Challenge Coppa Shell competition, winning five of 10 races this season for Ferrari of Atlanta. He won in his most recent start, kissing the bricks at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, following up a sizzling Saturday performance that saw him move from 11th starting position to finish second.
 


Earlier this season, Issa swept the Ferrari Challenge weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and won races at Sebring and Montreal, in addition to a pair of seconds at Circuit of The Americas. He holds a 31-point lead in the Coppa Shell standings with two weekends remaining.
 


The Atlanta-based racer is looking forward to continuing his progression as he steps up to the Blancpain GT level with Squadra Corsa.
 


“I honestly can't believe this is happening, driving a Ferrari GT3 at Watkins Glen with Martin Fuentes for Scuadra Corsa Ferrari goes beyond anything I thought I would ever experience,” said Issa.  “This group has an incredible record so I’m hoping to be a part of more success for the team this weekend.”
 


Co-driving with Caesar Bacarella, Fuentes has now won 15 of the last 16 races Squadra Corsa has contested over the past two seasons.


 
The Watkins Glen International races will be held at 3:10 p.m. on Saturday and 3:15 p.m. on Sunday (all times ET), with the Sunday event televised live on the CBS Sports Network beginning at 3 p.m.
