Following a challenging weekend in Portimão, Oregon Team is set to return to the track for the second of seven International GT Open rounds scheduled this coming weekend (27-28 May) at the Belgian track of Spa-Francorchamps.
The Italian squad has confirmed its two-car assault, fielding a brand-new Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 for Pierre-Louis Chovet and Maximilian Paul (who claimed two top 10 finishes in Algarve) and a second car for Pietro Perolini and Daan Arrow Pijl duo.
“The Spa race is very important for us, as we aim to redeem after the tough weekend we endured in Portugal,” commented Jerry Canevisio, who leads the team alongside Giorgio Testa. “Now we go to two tracks like Spa and Hungaroring, that suit the Lamborghini well and the BoP has also improved compared to Portimão.”
While both Oregon Team crews scored points in Portimão, they will strive to capitalize on their performance as much as possible starting from the next weekend, and everything seems OK to show well. Last year, at the Ardennes track, Oregon Team secured the pole position and then a victory and a third place. Eleven months later, the goal remains the same.
Spa helds only a 2h20-minute plus one lap race instead of two. The start is scheduled on Sunday at 12:45, while the two qualifying sessions will commence on Saturday at 11:45 and 13:40, with the starting grid determined by the average of the best times obtained by each driver. The two free practice sessions, each lasting one hour, are scheduled on Friday. The race will be live streamed on YouTube.
In the same weekend, Spa will also host the Clio Cup Italia that heads to the second of six double rounds and where Oregon Team will field a car for “Due”, who is currently fourth in the Racers’ standings, six points behind the leader. Qualifying one is scheduled on Saturday at 12:50, with Race 1 start at 17:25. The second qualifying will start on Sunday at 9:55, ahead of the second 25-minute plus one lap race at 16:30.
