Michela Cerruti joins GE-Force for the Bahrain event
06 April 2017
After spending the 2016 season developing the Romeo Ferraris-built Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR, Michela Cerruti will once again sit in the Italian car for the second event of the 2017 TCR International Series.
At Bahrain International Circuit, in the frame of the Formula One Grand Prix, Cerruti will join Davit Kajaia and Dušan Borković, taking the wheel of GE-Force’s third car that was driven by Shota Abkhazava during the series’ opener in Georgia.
While Kajaia was on his way to claiming the Giulietta TCR’s maiden win in Rustavi’s Race 1, Michela Cerruti was standing on the pit wall, biting her nails.
“I felt immense joy, even though I was not driving. It has been very emotional to celebrate a victory in a different role. The Giulietta is my baby; I played a part in its birth and growth, and I drove it when this kind of result was definitely beyond our hopes,” said the Italian lady who was the first driver to reach the podium with the car, finishing second in the TCR Middle East series at Dubai in January; a result that was matched by Kajaia one month later in Abu Dhabi.
“After my podium in Dubai and the outstanding performance of Davit and Dušan in Georgia, I can’t wait to be at the wheel myself once again although, for the time being, we are considering it as a one-off appearance. But I will try and do my best to help the team to score more points in the championship,” Michela concluded.
