Scuderia Ecosse’s Spa Trios
The team’s entries for the Spa 24 Hours next week will be
driven by the following:
#62 – Nathan Kinch, Andrew Kirkaldy & Marino Franchitti
#63 – Chris Niarchos, Tim Mullen & Allan Simonsen.
Mario Franchitti actually drove for the team in
its maiden GT race – at the Le Mans 1000 Km in 2003, with
Chris Niarchos and Tim Mullen – while Allan Simonsen has been
excelling in the JMB Racing Ferrari in the FIA GT3 Championship,
notably at Silverstone.
The GT2 line-ups include Bobbi / Melo / Ortelli
and Salo / Aguas / Scheider for AF Corse, Gardel / De Simone / Montermini
for GPC and Collard / Riccitelli / Dumas in the lead Ebimotors Porsche,
so it should be one of the most hotly contested endurance races
in GT2 ever. There are also the new factory / Manthey 997 Porsches
too, running in the G2 Class.
Scuderia Ecosse has won its last three races though,
at Oschersleben and twice at Snetterton.
