The No. 62 Risi Competizione Ferrari F458 Italia team spent the past couple of days at the Daytona International Speedway for the official Roar Before the 24 test days. The Houston, Texas-based team was pleased to successfully complete their set up and driver performance checklist in preparation for the 53rd running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona, January 23-25, 2015. Pierre Kaffer, along with Rolex 24 team mate, Italian Davide Rigon, completed five of six practice sessions over the two-day test, including a night practice stint.
Giancarlo Fisichella and Olivier Beretta will join Kaffer and Rigon in the cockpit of the popular Risi Prancing Horse for the twice-around-the-clock endurance classic at the superspeedway road course later this month.
“It’s really nice to be here with Risi Competizione. From the first lap, I felt very good with the car and the team. They are really fantastic. For now, we are working well with the car and trying a lot of different stuff. This is my first time driving with my teammate, Pierre. As a whole team with Olivier and Giancarlo Fisichella, I think we are a really good crew. Let’s hope it will continue like this and we’ll continue preparing for the race in a few weeks” commented Davide.
