British GT Championship/Mondello Park

Another podium for Ni Amorim

Ni Amorim finishes in the podium the first race of the British GT Championship journey's, this weekend, at Mondello Park. The race, held on Saturday, was "very difficult" for the RDM's driver, who shares a GT Cup class Ferrari F360 Modena with british Adam Wilcox:

"That is not the ideal track for the Ferrari, because is very tight and slow. Infortunately, we have some problems with the brakes, in the last stages of the race. So, with all of that, the result was very good."

In the second race, held on Sunday, Ni Amorim finishes a place behind, on 4th position: "The Ferrari have an adicional weight of 50 kilos, who made the things worst. But we can manage to finish third again, without a stop and go penalization."

After that race, Ni Amorim was second in the GT Cup Class classification. The next weeks are very important for Ni Amorim, because the team was able to put a strong "development program" for the Ferrari F360 Modena, with many tests sessions, the first of all at Castle Combe.


Ni Amorim in Snetterton

Ni Amorim was testing, last week, in Snetterton, the late developments on the DRM’Ferrari F360 Modena with he, together with Adam Wilcox, takes part in the British GT Championship. After the test, Amorim was very confident with his possibilities for the next race, 8th and 9th May, in Mondello Park:

“The torque was much better, like the velocity of the car. I believe that the Porsche, who wins both races at Donington, wasn’t too far away from our car. It’s possible to beat him, I think!”

This improvements on the DRM’Ferrari – including a new exhaust system – were only the first step for a more competitive car in the future.
