Filipe Albuquerque again in the 24h of Daytona

Portuguese driver will do team again with João Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi

Fil­ipe Albu­querque

Fil­ipe Albu­querque will par­tic­i­pate again in the Rolex 24h of Day­tona sched­uled on Jan­u­ary, 28 and 29. The Por­tuguese dri­ver will join João Bar­bosa and Chris­t­ian Fit­ti­pal­di at Mus­tang Sam­pling Team for the open­ing event of the IMSA Weath­erTech Sports­Car Cham­pi­onship, as last year, in what will be the fifth par­tic­i­pa­tion of Albu­querque in the myth­i­cal Amer­i­can race.

Last year the trio were fourth in the race, expect­ing this year to take the Mus­tang Sam­pling Cadil­lac DPi-V.R to the top of the podi­um: “I’m very hap­py to come back to Day­tona, a race I like a lot and where I already won in my first par­tic­i­pa­tion. It is always a huge plea­sure, to return to the bosom of the team and share the car with João and with the Chris­t­ian. It is a vote of con­fi­dence in my work, in a year when the rules are a nov­el­ty for every­one”, said the Por­tuguese dri­ver.

In terms of the race, the expec­ta­tion remains unchanged a year lat­er: “Win­ning, we have no oth­er expec­ta­tions, the expe­ri­ence of the team and the dri­vers point in a sin­gle direc­tion, the tests before the race will be impor­tant for a bet­ter prepa­ra­tion, but it seems to me that It’s all on the right track to get the win that last year escaped us, “he said.
