IMSA Racing / Re: 2017 IMSA Petit Le Mans
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on October 16, 2017, 12:35:01 AM »
Autosport's full report came out on Thursday, but it was rubbish - their two-page report contained two paragrahs (one had only a single sentence) on GTLM, and not a word about the Risi. Had they anything useful to report, I'd have mentioned it on here, but sadly they do not. The free report on Italiaracing is better (link in Italian), at least they managed a sentence on "our" car!

Auto Hebdo's full report has been published (in French) (they publish on Tuesdays) but I haven't read it yet. The digital copy is usually 2 and the print version 4. They have posted YouTube videos of the whole race on their site.

Autosprint (in Italian) would also have a race review of Petit Le Mans. Their print edition is 3, and I'm not sure how much the digital version is.

I'm not sure who would have a good review in Spanish, which I know is also of interest to you.

F1 & Ferrari / How Fisico's Ferrari story began
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on October 13, 2017, 09:16:24 PM »
Fisico talks about how he came to join Ferrari in an item by Motorsport.com. Unfortuntely, it's on subscription service Motorsport.com Prime, so I can only see a tiny amount of it at this time.

Racing / Creventic 24 Hours Series
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on October 10, 2017, 09:01:56 PM »
Risi Competizione has, according to Paul Truswell (a journalist who generally knows about these sorts of things) entered at least one Ferrari 488 into the Creventic-run 24 Hours Series. This involves seven races: a 24-hour race at Circuit of the Americas (Risi's home track), a 24-hour race in Dubai, two other 24-hour races somewhere in Europe and three 12-hour races (including Silverstone and Navarra in Spain). It remains to be seen whether Fisico is called upon to compete there.

If Fisico joins, it will be useful to note that the live timing service is at Race Results.

Thanks for the race report comments! Do you know if Autosport or something motor sport site has done their report too? Like Auto Hebdo?
Best luck for the whole team! :)

Unfortuantely, it turned out that I didn't get to see or hear any of the race. However, I can confirm that Toni got a brilliant class pole. Bravo Toni! In the race, Fisico led the race for ages, but unfortunately there was a pit lane speeding penalty (don't know who earned it, but Fisico took it*), so he, Toni and Alessandro had to settle for a 3rd place. They still seemed happy on the podium, and Fisico declared the race "fantastic".

* - Unlike, say, F1, the person who takes the penalty is not necessarily the culprit. The penalty is awarded to the car that breaches the rules. At busy times it can take up to 40 minutes to assess a penalty for a low-level issue like pit lane speeding. However, the stewards do not wait for the speeder to regain control of the car before requiring the penalty to be taken. So it's entirely possible that the speeding could have been done by whoever was driving before Fisico.

Blancpain Endurance / All-Pro limit initiated in Blancpain Endurance
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on October 03, 2017, 09:13:06 PM »
The SRO has made some changes to Blancpain Endurance's rules to prevent completely professional teams (like Kapersky, which Fisico drives for) from dominating the championship. In previous years, the usual line-up was to have one professional driver with two amateur ones, but this year, there have been 35 teams who have all-professional driver line-ups.

Teams with all-professional numbers are now limited to 26 (out of a field of 55) in all races except the Spa 24 Hours. That race will remain unrestricted. It is not clear if Kapersky wishes to be among the 26, as it has not yet reacted to the news.

Other changes include a rule that every driver in each line-up must do qualifying.

Unfortunately, I got a lot less access to Blancpain information than expected. I can now tell you that Fisico and his friends qualified 17th and finished 18th... ...but not how that occurred. At least it was a finish, but surely Fisico will have hoped for more.

Fisico and Toni's team-mate for Petit Le Mans has been announced. It is Alessandro Pier Guidi, who was last seen winning the GTE-Pro class of the 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas. This is going to be a really strong team :)

Blancpain Endurance / Blancpain 3 Hours of Barcelona
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on September 28, 2017, 11:00:38 PM »
It's the last Blancpain Endurance race of the season this weekend, in Barcelona. Fisico, Marco Cioci and James Calado will be trying to create a good ending to a remarkably frustrating season. I'm not sure how much of it I will be able to cover, but I will try.
