Maranello, 13 April – This coming weekend, California’s Long Beach circuit, thirty two kilometres to the south of Los Angeles, will host the second round of the American Le Mans Series, the prestigious American championship with three Ferraris entered in the GT category. A month on from the Sebring 12 Hours which kicked off the season, the action now moves to a very different, but equally demanding track, which back in the 70s was considered the best street circuit in the world. Risi Competizione have entered the new 458 Italia GT2, driven here by Brazil’s Jaime Melo, a past winner here in 2007 with the Houston based Ferrari team and Finland’s Toni Vilander, tackling this track for the very first time. Two other 458 Italia GT2 cars are entered by Extreme Speed Motorsports and are entrusted to Scott Sharp-Johannes van Overbeek and Ed Brown-Guy Cosmo.
Friday morning is given over to free practice while qualifying takes place in the afternoon, with the two hour race itself getting underway at 16.30 on Saturday.
