22.09.2017

GT Sport today released the provisional entry list for the Monza round, one of the most traditional and awaited in the season. 26 cars are already confirmed, ensuring a great grid and exciting action on the track.

On top of the already announced Porsche 911R of Förch Racing by Lukas Motorsport, latest new entries include a second SPS Automotive Performance car in the Pro-Am category. This other Mercedes AMG of the German squad will be entrusted to a Swiss pair, composed of Roberto Pampanini and Mauro Calamia.

The latter is joining from Solaris Motorsport, who will not attend this round, as will not do the FF Corse Ferrari and the Jordan Racing Bentley, all to reappear at Barcelona. Come-backs at Monza include the Lechner Racing Mercedes of Plachutta-Jäger, the Wessex Vehicles Lambo Gallardo Rex (with young gun Seb Morris joining Craig Dolby this time), and the Konrad Motorsport Lambo Huracán of Still-Scheuscner, all off for a third outing this season. Also back is the Garage59 McLaren of Michael Benham-Duncan Tappy, after missing the Silverstone round, for happy family reasons impacting on Michael’s plans.

Among driver changes already known, it is to be noted that Allan Hellmeister will be back alongside Marcelo Hahn on the Drivex Mercedes, while Piergiuseppe Perazzini will be paired this time on the spirit of Race Ferrari by Matt Griffin. A long-time popular contender in the series, the Irishman is back for the first time this year. On its side, BMW Team Teo Martín confirmed that the gues star alongside Beirão this time will be Augusto Farfus, already seen in the role at the Hungaroring.
