Still to be unveiled the name of his team mates but they will be expert and quick drivers in order to compose a strong line-up that can be fight for the win in every race. Michele will join the team for the first time during the Goodyear tyre test session at Le Castellet in the first days of March.

I’m looking forward to get the track”. Michele says few days before the test. “I will have to learn everything as fast as possible and without making mistakes. I’m very curious to learn the Porsche 911 RSR, about which I’ve heard speaking very well and it seems to be the most competitive car in the GTE. Besides that, I will have a new high quality team, with team mates that will allow me to set my sights on important results. I won’t waste time during the tests, optimizing every moment to learn as much informations as possible. The Dempsey-Proton Racing team is one of the best and I will have at my side expert and fast mates; a set of factors that let me have winning expectation. I know all the tracks where we will race, while I will have to pay close attention to the coexistence of different category in the same race, such as LMP2 e P3. The only experience I have of races like this is the 24H of Daytona, where we drive with cars of different category and I learnt how important is to manage the traffic in the best way.
