The already full summer calendar of Matteo Cairoli sees another event scheduled: the driver from Como, currently involved in international racing series such as the FIA World Endurance Championship and the European Le Mans Series, will be at the start of the two Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia rounds. Replacing Alexandre Imperatori, Cairoli will thus make his debut in the Asian series at the wheel of the second Porsche 992 of Absolute Racing, taking part in the next two rounds together with the Chinese driver Bao Jinlong.
After his European commitments, where Cairoli brought home the Bronze class victory at the 24 Hours of Spa and a podium in the European Le Mans Series, the driver from Como, born in 1996, will go racing for the fourth consecutive week; the Italian will compete at the Mobility Resort Motegi, home of the fourth round of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia, from July 21st to July 23rd. The driver from Como will then be back on the Asian grid the month after in Okayama for the fifth round of the championship on August 18th-20th.
“I’m happy to go back racing in Asia, especially after already racing in the Asian Le Mans Series in February. I’m delighted to make my debut in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia, it’s a very competitive championship and I can’t wait to prove myself; I want to thank Absolute Racing for their trust and for the opportunity that they gave me. I’m ready to face this challenge.”
