Three years down the road from the last appearance in the International GT Open, Imperiale Racing will be back to compete in the series on the occasion of the round in Monza. The Italian team, thanks to the support of Topcon Position Systems, will field a Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 Evo for Alberto Di Folco and James Roe Jr.
Alberto Di Folco (26), from Italy, is one of Imperiale Racing’s top drivers, contesting the Italian GT Sprint Championship this year and he recently won the round in Imola. He has also GT Open experience from the 2019-18.
James Roe Jr. (22), from Ireland, made his GT debut with Imperiale at the latest round of the Italian GT Endurance Championship in Mugello and became part of the Junior program of the Italian team. James built an important experience in open-wheel racing and took part in several categories, among which the Indy Lights.
The GT Open marked the international debut of the Mirandola-based team, in 2016-2019. It won the Teams’ and Drivers’ titles with Venturini in 2017, while in 2018 it continued the momentum with three wins and Teams’ runner-up honours.
Luca Del Grosso (Team Manager) commented: “It is very exciting to be back in the International GT Open in a very intense season like 2022 and I want to thank Topcon Position Systems, who worked with us on this project. This year we are putting a lot of effort not only on the track but also into a lot of side activities like the growth program of our young drivers and the participation in International series. At Monza, we will face another very high-level European event.”
