Roman De Angelis was across the ocean in Italy this past weekend competing in the Porsche Mobil 1 Super Cup at Monza ahead of the Italian Grand Prix. Roman was racing as a guest driver with the Project 1 racing team, based out of Germany. Although he was racing in a new car for the weekend, it was still sporting his familiar Racing For Children’s livery.
Roman was able to use the Friday practice session to become familiar with the car and prepare himself for the weekend. In the Saturday qualifying session, he was able to trim a second off his Friday practice time and grab 22nd on the grid. Not bad for a rookie driver in a 32 car field.
Sunday was race day, and De Angelis was able to get off to a good start and show speed throughout the race to move himself up to 17th on the grid.
Overall it was a challenging, but amazing weekend and experience. I can’t thank the People from Medical Properties Trust enough for allowing us to represent Racing for Children’s on such an amazing stage. Qualifying was quite difficult after struggling to find the peak of the tire, but the race was one of the most enjoyable races I’ve been in. We managed to pick up several spots and have some great battles, which I hope translates to even stronger performances to finish off the Canadian and American Porsche GT3 Cup Championships! – De Angelis
The travelling doesn’t stop for Roman as his next race will be at the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama series.
