WECTestMonza016_Carbone (2)

La scorsa settimana l’Autodromo di Monza si è trasformato per due giorni nel test track per diversi team del FIA World Endurance Championship. Una occasione perfetta per testare le auto in configurazione Low-Downforce in vista della 24h di Le Mans e per far macinare chilometri ad alcuni piloti per la prima volta al volante delle nuove auto.

Last week the Autodromo di Monza became, for two days, the test track for various teams of the FIA World Endurance Championship. A perfect occasion to test the cars in Low-Downforce configuration in view of the 24h of Le Mans and to let some of the drivers to spend some time behind the steering wheel of their brand new cars.

A girare in pista si sono presentati: ByKolles, Rebellion Racing, Ford Performance, Aston Martin Racing, Tequila Patron ESM, RGR By Morand , Michael Shank Racing e Panis-Barthez Competition. ByKolles inoltre ospitava nel box anche una ex vettura LMP, la Lotus LMP2 del 2012, ora in mano a un privato che se la gode al meglio. Chiaramente noi ancora aspettiamo di poter vedere dopo anni una griglia intera del WEC a Monza (ridateci la 1000Km, grazie) ma nel frattempo ci accontentiamo più che volentieri di avere un assaggio di alcune delle auto protagoniste del campionato automobilistico più bello al mondo.

These the teams that were lapping the race track: ByKolles, Rebellion Racing, Ford Performance, Aston Martin Racing, Tequila Patron ESM, RGR By Morand , Michael Shank Racing and Panis-Barthez Competition. ByKolles even hosted in their boc an ex LMP car, the 2012 Lotus LMP2, now in the hands of a privateer with enjoys it at its best. Of course we are still waiting to see, after many years, a full WEC grid at Monza (give us back the 1000km, thanks) but in the meantime we are happy enough to have a brief taste of some of the protagonists of the most beautiful racing championship on four wheels in the world.
