to turn the attention to the memorable up and down Bathurst city track.

Few hours before the start of the 12H weekend, Michele said: “Everithing is born unexpectedly last week, when I received the call from Black Falcon. This will be a brand new experience since I’ve never driven a Mercedes and I don’t know the track. Bathurst is fascinating, in some aspect similar to Nurburgring, with the mistery of the walls that here are even closer.
Michele is pragmatic with this race and finishes saying: “My aim is to learn gradually, without exaggeration at the beginning. Thanks to the great support of the team, I will try to adapt myself as fast as I can. Before leaving I studied the track carefully.
