Chevrolet-powered Solaris Motorsport to line-up with brand-new v8 Camaro in 2013
A brand-new contender is set to join the 2013 Superstars International Series roster, as Chevrolet Solaris Motorsport will be fielding a Camaro starting from this season’s opener at Monza, on the 6th and 7th of April. The American brand will bring on-track another spectacular-looking car model, also adding new facets to the already-exciting technical challenge of SUPERSTARS.
With five countries, two continents on the calendar and a full line-up of International Stars, Superstars is open to the world
Superstars enjoys International flavour
Superstars has grown more and more International lately, and with three rounds still to go this season, the championship is entering an exciting season finale with a world-level flavour. A fascinating calendar, involving the most demanding racetracks of five countries and two continents (the 2012 grand finale will be at Sentul), is one of the top features of the championship as well and highly competitive field of drivers from all over the world.
With the sport moving to reduce its exorbitant costs, expensive track testing has become almost a thing of the past.
Stefano Domenicali has blamed the lack of private testing in formula one for the sport’s failure to produce bright new star drivers in recent times. Now, the few pre-season tests are used exclusively for car development and the race drivers, and even the new mid-season test – held at Mugello this year – has been scrapped for 2013.
