Montreal, QC – Two weeks after a successful weekend at the Victoria Day Speedfest Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama, Roman De Angelis and Mark Motors Racing are back in full force at the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada in Montreal. “This will be my first time racing this type of car on this track” said De Angelis. “Having raced last year in the F1600 class has at least prepared me for the track layout and things to look out for. I will also be racing in the F1600 this year, so doing double duty in GT3 Cup as well as F1600 should be very challenging for me!”
De Angelis finished the last race weekend in 5th overall and 1st in the Gold category at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park and is now focused on this upcoming race weekend at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. When asked about his thoughts towards the weekend, Roman had this to say; “Coming off of the last few races and gaining the confidence has been great for me. We continue to compete with the platinum cars and I continue to try and run very consistent laps to better my overall position. The Bestline guys have given me the best car to drive and I could not do it without them! It will be nice to see how we do on this type of circuit. A special thanks to Mark Motors and everyone in the series. I’m really looking forward to this weekend!”
While proud of his placement and first time in the Porsche GT3 cup Gold car at the Victoria Day Speedfest, De Angelis hopes to make his way further up the overall program. Watch out Montreal, Quebec we have a De Angelis on the track!
De Angelis will race twice #78 this weekend at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Quebec. Race 1 will start at 5:00 PM EST Saturday, June 10th and race 2 will start at 10:40 AM EST on Sunday, June 11th. Both can be viewed live via streaming on imsa.com
