James Roe Jr:

Luca Del Grosso (Team Manager):
“The recent round of Vallelunga proved that anything can happen and the Endurance races are never trivial. We know Monza very well, the drivers wish to show their potential, and we have all the ingredients to run a strong weekend. We are aware of our chances, and we know that there is a lot to take into account, some variables are less foreseeable than others, therefore we will work to get the best performance possible and play our best cards. We are resolute to do well and we will try to end the season with a strong result”.
