After a positive first experience with the Rome-based squad at Pergusa, where he ended up with a spectacular second-place finish in Race 2, talented Luigi Ferrara will be driving the team’s brand-new Mercedes C63 AMG Coupé for the 2013 season, under the close supervision of team founder and manager Nico Caldarola.

“I’m very excited to have Luigi Ferrara as a driver – told Caldarola – with him behind the wheel, our C63 AMG Coupé will be able to aim very high. Back at Pergusa we found great chemistry and from that point on I started thinking to offer him a ride. I want to focus on the Team Manager role in an effort to take RRT to the next level and compete with the frontrunners of SUPERSTARS.”

“I’ve been positively impressed by the way RRT worked at Pergusa – told Ferrara – it’s a very experienced team and I’m sure I have made the right choice. I’m looking for a rebound this season after having been very close to the SUPERSTARS title twice. The C63 AMG Coupé is a sensational car, and we are working hard on it to make it even more competitive. In the series’ official test will we will be focused on choosing the right direction to take. I want to thank Nico as well as my sponsors for this opportunity. I hope to reward them with my results on-track”.
