Problems solved; two cars on the grid at ELMS Barcelona season opener
Inter Europol Competition is very happy to have two cars on the grid with three drivers each. In the #13 Ligier LMP3 Martin Hippe and Ugo de Wilde will be joined by quick French driver Julien Falchero. The #14 Ligier LMP3 will be shared by the only Lithuanian driver in the championship Julius Adomavicius, and two Italian drivers; Alessandro Bracalente and Mattia Pasini. Mattia Pasini comes from Moto2 and MotoGP and will make his debut in sportscars.
Sascha Fassbender (team manager): “I am very happy that we managed to get two cars on the grid in Barcelona. After all the problems we had in the run-up to the race, I am especially happy for our mechanics who had been preparing everything for the use of the two cars for weeks. With Alessandro, Julius and Mattia we are strong in all areas and nothing stands in the way of a successful ELMS season. On the #13 car, we have a very strong team with Julien, Ugo and Martin. With a good mix of young light-heartedness and experience, we will be attacking the championship again this year after three years of runner-up finishes. I am very happy that Julien is helping us with this mission.”
#13 Julien Falchero: “I am very happy to join the Inter Europol Competition team for the ELMS season in LMP3. I would like to thank the team for giving me the opportunity to race this season, and I can’t wait to start working with my new teammates. Our goal will be to win the championship, and I am confident we can do it.”
#14 Julius Adomanvicius: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to the Inter Europol Competition family. Last year I did one race at Portimao and it tasted like more. Driving the LMP3 is going to be an exciting new experience in my career. I hope we can achieve the desired result.”
#14 Mattia Pasini: “I am so happy to start my new adventure with this team and together we will see where we can go with this. I expect to be competitive and have fun and enjoy the ELMS. We will see how my debut will be on four wheels. Can’t wait.”
#14 Alessandro Bracalente: “I want to say thanks to the team to have made joining them possible in a very few days. Obviously, I will do my best with my teammates to get the best possible result and make us proud and happy.”
