Zamparelli Earns European Wild card

Dino Zamparelli will race in Porsche Supercup Championship at Silverstone alongside F1 Grand Prix this weekend.

The GT Marques driver has earned a wild card entry to race this weekend at the home of British racing, Silverstone in the European version of the Porsche Carrera Cup.

Silverstone also hosts the tenth round of the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship which means the 23-year-old driver will be racing in front of huge crowds.

The Bristol Sport Racing driver said: "This is such a wonderful opportunity to showcase our speed on a European platform and to impress all of the right people.

"We have a free practice on Friday, Qualifying on Saturday and Race on Sunday, all before the F1 main event.

"To be racing in front of over 140 thousand people will be incredible and I'm excited to be competing in the main racing event of the summer.

"Also, to be a British driver at the British Grand Prix, albeit not as an F1 driver, is something very special. The crowd always get behind the Brits."

"We will attack the weekend as normal. There will be no changes to my approach. I know the circuit well, having raced there back in April this year with the GB Championships.

"I can't wait to get stuck in and show what we can do!"

Dino Zamparelli has qualifying on Saturday, July 9th at 11:25am and will race on Sunday, July 10th at 10:35am.
