After reaching its halfpoint, the 2014 EUROV8SERIES is ready to exit the Italian borders to line-up in Czech Republic. The Brno track will host round 4 on June 21st and 22nd.Francesco Sini is without a doubt one of the stars of the international series. In addition to that, he was able to celebrate the maiden win of his Solaris Motorsport all-orange Chevrolet Camaro at Vallelunga.
The Pescara-based racer is holding fourth place overall in the FG Group-promoted championship, and he stopped by to share his views and expectations over the rest of the season.How do you judge your season start?
My balance is definitely positive. The podiums at Monza, and the first win with the Camaro at Vallelunga make us really proud. The car improved a lot from 2013 and the real results are finally coming. There’s a little regret for the two races at Mugello, where we were stopped by a mechanical issue and a crash that prevented us from scoring points. We’re working night and day to repair our car which needs a little more time compared to the European cars as spare parts are coming from the USA. Probably it will be ready for Brno.
You also had the chance to rely on a great team-mate like Mimmo Schiattarella. You have been a great pairing…
With Schiattarella there’s great chemistry. Last year he struggled a bit in adapting to the Chevrolet Lumina, while now he got in touch with the car. The results are a visible proof: he scored four podium finishes on very different tracks and now it’s clear that Mimmo is really quick both on the fast track and on the twisties.
Solaris Motorsport have always been looking forward to field a second Camaro in the EUROV8SERIES, how is the project going?We always believed in this series. We are working on a second Camaro in our shop and it’s coming close to completion. We plan to field it in the two German rounds of the series.What can be the strongest track for you among the final three rounds of the season (Brno, Sachsenring ed Hockenheimring)?Definitely Brno. We know well the track and the Camaro has all what it takes to do well. In addition to that, we don’t have any compensation ballast so we’re definitely going to have our say for wins. The Hockenheim Ring will also enable us to show the real potential of our Chevy racer. As usual though, we wait to be there and see how it goes!
