Risi’s Ferrari(s)
dailysportscar.comReferring to “US sportscar racing's worst kept secret”, Giuseppe Risi and his Risi Competizione have confirmed their participation in the 2006 American Le Mans Series – but have provided no more details of the project.

“This new car looks very promising,” says the team owner (right). “Intense chassis development by Ferrari has resulted in greatly increased stiffness and the car features a new, larger displacement, engine design with more horsepower. I'm really looking forward to joining battle with a stellar list of GT2 competitors, including Porsche, BMW, and Lexus. The competition on track will be great for everyone: manufacturers, teams, drivers, fans, quite simply everyone. We expect to fly the Ferrari standard high this year.”

dailysportscar.comRisi hasn’t mentioned the Multimatic Motorsport Team Panoz entries, which are also going to be highly competitive: they certainly were in testing last week, at Sebring.

Ralf Kelleners hasn’t been formally announced as one of the drivers, yet. No drivers have been announced at this stage - although Ralf is definitely going to drive.

That's Jean-Philippe Belloc at the wheel at Fiorano, isn't it?

“Ferrari embodies many of the same qualities that the American Le Mans Series embraces,” Series President and CEO Scott Atherton remarked. “Exotic, prestigious and elite are descriptions that come to mind when discussing both. Ferrari has played a significant role in the American Le Mans Series throughout its history, and we are ecstatic that it will be returning to our grid.”

The next installment(s) regarding ALMS entries should involve the GT1 category.
