Bad Luck for the Kaspersky Motorsport team in Monza.

Bad luck for the GT Open in Monza.

This weekend the Kaspersky Motorsport #48 car is in Monza for the International GT Open. One of seven races on the 2017 calendar the Autodromo Nazionale Monza is a driver favourite due to its history and also it’s fast straights and challenging corners. The Kaspersky Motorsport team was looking forward to getting the #48 out on track as many improvements have been made to the car and everyone was keen to see it challenge the other racers on the grid.

Alex Moiseev has been training hard and was also ready to put everything in place for a strong weekend of racing in Italy.

But unfortunately bad luck struck today when in qualification the car lost control coming out of Lesmo and hit the barriers breaking the whole front of the car.

Davide Rizzo, Kaspersky Motorsport Driver, said:

“The weekend started off really well and we did some set-up improvements that were really helping with our times and pace. Alex Moiseev was pushing hard and was improving every lap. It was going to be a good opportunity for us to step up in the GT Open Championship. We had really bad luck in qualifying. We were on our second set of new tyres when the car lost control at Lesmo and hit the barriers. It is not repairable in time for the races this weekend. But most important is that Alex has been checked out by the medical team and is absolutely fine.”

With the next and final round of the International GT Open Championship 2017 coming up in October all focus has now been put on that race to finish the season on a high.
