Zamparelli Fights to 2nd Overall at Prestigious Le Mans Carrera Cup Race

We are so proud of Dino Zamparelli, who produced an outstanding performance to claim 2nd overall at the Carrera Cup support race at the Le Mans circuit in France.

Arguably the biggest race of the year, with over 61 cars gridded up at Le Mans to support the main race on Saturday, this was definitely a race the 24 year old Bristol driver was aiming to impress at.

With hot temperatures greeting all 61 drivers from France, Belgium and the UK, it was going to be a tough 45 minute race on Saturday. Zamparelli started in 2nd place, with a solid qualifying effort on Thursday previously.

Zamparelli was sat in 3rd place on the final lap, but would keep his head to move up to 2nd with an opportunistic move into the Porsche Curves section. He would then have a good run through the final section before crossing the line 0.6 tenths down on the winner, also from Porsche GB, Dan Cammish.

Dino commented “Le Mans is such a special circuit – I had great fun learning it and driving it. It’s a 4 minute lap, which is crazy in itself. The highlight for me was being fastest in Free Practice, and being only 0.016 off Pole position! The race itself was another highlight and as I say, I’m proud of what we achieved here and confident going into the second half of the Carrera Cup GB Championship.”

The next round of the Championship takes place at Snetterton on the 29th/30th July 2017.
