SERIES PREPARES EXCITING WEEKEND FOR FANS TO CELEBRATE 100TH RACE
Rome, April the 19th, 2012
In addition to the exciting race action provided by the SUPERSTARS INTERNATIONAL SERIES, including countless duels and overtakes on the World's best race venues, the FG GROUP-promoted championship has made further steps in getting close to fans, with new initiatives aimed at rewarding them on Race Day.
After getting sold out in occasion of round 1 in Monza, where a record-high 31.000 fans came on-track to cheer for their favorite drivers, the interest in SUPERSTARS and GTSPRINT is rising high at Imola.
Many initiatives have been developed to promote the event at Imola in-style. An huge commercial promotion made of billboards over the region's territory was paired by a national media campaign involving all the major newspapers and magazines including - but not limited to - Gazzetta dello Sport, Autosprint, Corriere della Sera, La Repubblica. More promotional activities were carried-on on several radio stations and social media.
In addition to that, the FREE TICKET program continued for the joy of fans, as they will be able to download a voucher valid for a free grandstand ticket by registering at www.eurosuperstars.com. Once on the grandstands, they will be part of the STANDS4FUN show. The SUPERSTARS GRID GIRLS will be distributing free SUPERSTARS-branded gifts, while prizes like VIP Passes will also be up for grabs on Sunday, 11:00 AM, Grandstand A.
The track at Imola will welcome all the fans from Saturday, as an OPEN PADDOCK from 14:00 to 18:00 will provide fans with the chance to meet the greatest names of motorsport for free in a number of major events.
Doctor Costa, the world-famous creator of Clinica Mobile and a key figure for motosports fans and riders around the world, will be presenting his latest book at 14:30, a celebration for his first 40 years of practice dedicated to the sadly missed Marco Simoncelli. Costa, who titled his book "La vittoria di Marco", will be awarded by Maurizio Flammini, the creator of SUPERSTARS, in honor of their partnership, lasting for more than thirty years.
In addition to Costa, doctor and friend of many riders and drivers, some motorsports legends will also be present. Mick Doohan, a motorcycling icon of the 90's, will be paired by Alex Zanardi, a true sportsman and sports lover, currently involved at the highest levels of handbike racing.
On-track, the top racers of SUPERSTARS are ready to battle. Christian Fittipaldi will be making his debut aboard the Swiss Team Maserati Quattroporte and Indonesian Ananda Mikola, will race for the first time aboard a Ferlito-prepared Jaguar XFR, the same car which took the pole and one win at Monza with Max Pigoli. The Como-based racer is leading the standings and will be targeted by the other top racers of the series. Former F.1 racers Tonio Liuzzi, fielded by CAAL Racing on a AMG-supported Mercedes C63 AMG, and Gianni Morbidelli, back on his Audi RS5, will meet 2010 SUPERSTARS Champion Thomas Biagi and his BMW M3.
For the fans watching the races at home, the SUPERSTARS action will be televised live in more than 66 Countries (including Italy on Rai Sport 2), and as-live in 175 Nations.
