Scuderia Villorba Corse announces their “Racing with Ferrari” programme for the 2016 season. Italian team will take part in the Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup starting from the opening round to be held at Imola on May 14. In the six rounds of this brand new international series, created by ACO Le Mans and reserved exclusively for GT3 cars and primarily for amateur drivers, the squad led by Raimondo Amadio will line up a French pair formed by Cedric Mezard and Steeve Hiesse. Alongside their commitment at the wheel of a Ferrari 458 GT3 starting from Imola, Villorba Corse's internal division for sports clients is working to bring a second car in the championship.

In 2016 it will be focused on the Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup, a very interesting championship with a well-organized calendar, including Le Mans. We already know Mezard and Hiesse, we can get significant results with them and we want a second car in the championship as soon as possible”.
