Davide Rizzo: “I’m very excited to begin this new adventure with William [Lok] and WIN Motorsport. We have raced together before and it went well, so we will try to duplicate that success here. It will be the first time for me with an LMP3 car. Passing from GT, I will need a bit of practice but the team is already doing a good job, giving me a day to try the car which went very well. From what I have seen already, the team is very professional and has made me feel extremely comfortable.”
