We had been trying to get Piercarlo Ghinzani in our series for years, and finally this season we have been able to accomplish the task, also thanks to a new racecar which definitely adds more spice to the challenge among teams. On the other hand, in the last few years Robert Visoiu has emerged as one of the most promising young prospects of European motorsport and will contribute to keeping the level of competition high”.
Piercarlo Ghinzani: “I’m happy to help Robert to pursuit his professional growth by lining him up in the Auto GP. At just 17 years of age he has great room for improvement especialli in a team like ours, where we can offer good technical advice for the fast and mixed circuits of this championship. I always like to transfer my personal experience to the young drivers aiming at becoming professionals”.

I’m ready and excited to race in Auto GP this season and I think it will be a great developmental environment to build my future as a driver.
