After the success achieved in 2016, Michele Beretta returns in the Blancpain GT Series’ Silver Cup, ready to fight together Barwell Motorsport: the italian driver, Italian GT Champion last year on Lamborghini Huracan GT3, will race with the same car model supported by the british team in the prestigious continental series, which will share it with Martin Kodric and Sandy Mitchell. The three will compete in the new class “Silver Cup – Junior Pro”, introduced this year also in the endurance events, a calendar that also includes the prestigious 24 Hours of Spa.

Michele Beretta: “I am really happy to take part in the Blancpain Endurance Cup with Barwell. At the end of last year I had the opportunity to test with the team, and I have been impressed by the attention to details and professionalism they put in place. I think we have a strong line up to fight for the Silver Cup and I am looking forward to start with the programme next month.

The Black Bull-backed Lamborghini will start its testing programme in Portimao, Portugal in February, before moving on to the official Blancpain pre-season test at Paul Ricard on March 13-14, and then to both Monza and Silverstone prior to the first race of the Endurance Cup at Monza on April 22nd.
