Giancarlo FISICHELLA – Scuderia Ferrari F1

Formula One star Giancarlo Fisichella previously drove for the Benetton, Renault, Force India, and Ferrari teams, among others, and today holds the position of Ferrari test driver. Fisichella was born in Rome and to this day is a passionate fan of his local football team, AC Roma. His first race win came at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2003, and in 2005, during his time at Renault, he achieved his second victory in Australia. Later that year, he won his third race, this time in Malaysia. Soon after, he joined Scuderia Ferrari and had the pleasure of competing under its banner on a number of occasions. In recent seasons he has raced for the private AF Corse team, driving a Ferrari 458 in the GT World Championship. Fisichella will drive a Ferrari F1 car.

Rodolfo GONZÁLEZ – Marussia F1 Team

Originally from Venezuela, Rodolfo González made the leap from his home country to the UK at a very young age, believing that this was the only way for him to someday win a coveted F1 seat. He began his career in the British Formula Renault series and last year he was invited to take part in the Caterham F1 team’s young driver test, after which the Marussia F1 team decided to take a chance on him as its test driver for the current season.

Daniel MANCINELLI  – Ferrari F458 GT Challenge

Daniel Mancinelli is the leader among drivers in the Ferrari Challenge category, a championship exclusively designed for the Italian manufacturer’s sports cars. Born in Piacenza, Italy, which is coincidentally also home to the Italian Toro Rosso F1 team, Mancinelli will drive the Ferrari F458 GT Challenge.

Marco CIOCI  -Ferrari F430 GT Challenge

Marco Cioci from Rome has competed in Ferraris worldwide for many years, specializing in endurance events. He recently participated in a 12-hour race [K1] in the Persian Gulf. Cioci will drive a Ferrari 430 GT Challenge.

Antonio FUOCO – Ferrari F430 GT Challenge

Antonio Fuoco has been racing since he was 4. At just 17 he has managed to make a name for himself by winning several kart races throughout Italy. He took 3rd and 2nd place respectively in the 2009 and 2010 seasons of the Italian Karting Championship – a distinguished achievement in itself. Following his success in Italy, and with the help of the Italian Motor Sport Federation, Fuoco is today having his talent nurtured by the prestigious Ferrari Driver Academy, which will enable him to test drive the Ferrari team’s F1 cars later this season. Fuoco will drive a Ferrari F430 GT Challenge.

Riccardo RAGAZZI – Ferrari F430 GT Challenge

The Italian Ricardo Ragazzi is an experienced veteran of the Ferrari Challenge, in which he drives a Ferrari F430. In 2008, he set a new record, becoming the oldest driver ever to win the European Challenge series, demonstrating highly impressive driving abilities. Ragazzi will drive a Ferrari F430 GT Challenge.

Valentina ALBANESE  – Ferrari F 430 GT Challenge

Valentina Albanese, age 39, was born in Rome and began her motorsports career racing sports cars and participating in endurance races in Italy, achieving numerous impressive results. Albanese will drive through the streets of Jerusalem in the Mercedes C63 AMG, which participates in the Italian Superstars Championship for touring cars – a series now surging in popularity throughout its native country.


Vitantonio LIUZZI -Audi DTM – Lotus LMS LMP2

Vitantonio Liuzzi, the 32-year-old Italian driver, has started an impressive 80 grand prix for four different teams. The highlight of his career was winning 6th place, which he achieved for both Toro Rosso and Force India. After he unfortunately was not able to secure an F1 seat for the 2012 season, Liuzzi decided to change direction and for the past two years has participated in endurance races worldwide with great success. This year, he will compete for Lotus in the famous Le Mans 24-hour race. Liuzzi will drive the Audi DTM and the Lotus LMS LMP2.



Max BIAGGI- Ducati Panigale Tricolore

As the reigning Superbike world champion, Max Biaggi has become the most prominent name in the two-wheel category. Perhaps he is most famous for his fierce on-track battles each season with Valentino Rossi in their MotoGP races. Biaggi also previously won the 250cc World Championship four times and is considered one of the world’s greatest ever motorcycle racers.
