Scuderia Playteam SaraFree reveals strong driver line-up for 2008 GT Open season

Scuderia Playteam SaraFree reveals strong driver line-up for 2008 GT Open season

05.03.2008: Scuderia Playteam SaraFree reveals strong driver line-up for 2008 GT Open season


Scuderia Playteam SaraFree has revealed that its driver line-up for the 2008 GT Open season will be Andrea Montermini and Michele Maceratesi after the duo won their GT Open category (GTA) with 65 points in 2007.

Scuderia Playteam SaraFree enters the 2008 season with high hopes, and will trust the same drivers to successfully defend their title. While Montermini and Maceratesi will drive the first Ferrari F430, Portugal's Pedro Couceiro and Manuel Giao will drive the second Ferrari F430.

"I am delighted to be part of Scuderia Playteam SaraFree for the third year. It feels like being at home," says Michele Maceratesi. "It is not necessary to say that I want to finish the upcoming season in the lead and as a winner. Everything is in place to allow me go do so I am really looking forward to a season with the team. I'm really happy to be teaming up again with Andrea Montermini and we'll be going all out to obtain a victory in the opening round of the new season."

Andrea Montermini commented, "It is a great honour to be back in such a strong team like Scuderia Playteam SaraFree. I am convinced that it is one of the most professional teams in the paddock and we will not fail to score points again from the first race of the season and aim to do the same if not better than last season and go one better with the overall championship win too."

Pedro Couceiro comes from the Spanish GT Championship and commented, "I have already been with Scuderia Playteam SaraFree in 2006 so know that they are a very professional team. We want to score as many wins as possible. It is thrilling to know that we will try to compete with the best drivers with one of the best teams in the paddock."

Also from the Spanish GT Championship, Manuel Giao commented, "Scuderia Playteam SaraFree feels like a family and Giambattista Giannoccaro, the team owner is something of a father figure to me. After the experience and results in the Spanish GT Championship in 2006 I am very happy to be driving again under the Playteam SaraFree colours. I'm very excited to be teaming up with Pedro Couceiro. I am certain that this is a top flight way to start another excellent season."

The strength of this season's line up is clearly demonstrated by the past performances of the drivers. For the 2007 season the Italian squad Playteam SaraFree finished the GT Open round on a very positive note with Andrea Montermini-Michele Maceratesi champions of their category GTA with 65 points, visiting the podium five times for 3 wins at Vallelunga, Ocshersleben, and Brands Hatch and 2 second places at Monza, and Catalonia.

In addition there were a total of four pole positions for each of the two drivers at Vallelunga, Ochsersleben, Brands Hatch, and Monza. For the team overall there were a total of nine wins and five poles for the season. on the second Ferrari F430 in the forthcoming season the Portuguese duo of Pedro Couceiro and Manuel Giao will be bringing with them an impressive set of accomplishments. Giao has already scored 18 wins in his career.
