This weekend (12-14 February) the ventiduenne Davide Rigon will make its entry into the GP2 Asia championship in Qatar at the Losail circuit, thanks to the agreement reached with the Trident Racing team and the team principal Maurizio Salvadori.
To the young driver it will be the official debut in a GP2 race targato, after trying at the end of 2007, the Dallara Fisichella Motor Sport International on the route of Paul Richard, as a reward for having won the Italian title and European F.3000. On that occasion David had marked the 9th time absolute (about 65 participants) and the second best among rookies.
David returns to wear overalls and gloves after having won the title in the Superleague Formula championship, obtained on the Spanish track in Jerez last November 23 (with 3 wins on the assets and 2 third places)
“I want to thank the Trident Racing team and Maurizio Salvadori for giving me this opportunity and I hope to be rewarded with a beautiful result,” commented Davide Rigon “This will be my debut in this category for this and try to make the most of opportunity , because my main goal for this season is to be on the starting grid of the GP2 Main Series. Precisely for this tomorrow (Tuesday) leaving for Qatar, to put it to work with the engineer. The time available is very short because I have only 30 minutes of free practice to develop the car and learning the track. Do not go up on a single by November 23, but in recent months, I continued to work hard to be ready at every call. “
