Rubens Barrichello To Participate In Spa 24 Hours

The 11th time winner of Formula One race, Rubens Barrichello is all geared up to take part in the Spa 24 Hours which will be conducted next month. Barrichello has always raced in the Brazilian Stock Car Championship as full time and will be seen driving a Mercedes AMG GT3 for Strakka Racing. 44 Mercedes will be shared by him with Felipe Fraga, who is the Brazilian stock car contender and Christian Vietors, the Mercedes DTM test driver. Barrichello for the first time will compete in Europe and looks forward to race at Spa like he did in the past which got him the pole position in Formula One. This is indeed refreshing the old memories once again. The race will be an exciting one as Barrichello would be racing with Felipe, and share the car with Chris. It is going to be a competitive race and prove fruitful.

Fraga took part in Strakka in 1000 km BGTS for Paul Ricard in the beginning of June. Vietoris would be racing for the first time as per the schedule with the team as he missed the opening of three Endurance Cup events due to health concerns. Barrichello will undergo testing for 2 days with the Spa team next week. Strakka will field 3 cars like always at the Spa. The lead entry will be driven by Maximilian Gotz and Maximilian Buhk who are the factory drivers of Mercedes in addition to Parente.

Nick Leventis, the team owner will drive with Lewis Williamson, Chris Buncombe and David Fumanelli. The director of Strakka Jay Davenport is quite confident that the drivers chosen as per the schedule will bring victory and wins overall. It is indeed going to be an interesting race to watch and Barrichello will put in his best efforts to achieve victory and make his supporters proud as usual.
