Richert Sets Sights on Italy
After becoming one of the only Canadian’s to ever drive a race car through the streets of Monte Carlo at the Monaco Grand Prix weekend, David Richert, has now arrived in Milan for this weekend’s race at the historic Italian circuit of Monza.
Video highlights from Monaco can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/172801232
There will be 25 drivers from 15 countries competing in the Eurocup Formula Renault event at Autodromo di Monza, one of the fastest racing circuits in the world. Monza is steeped in Grand Prix racing history and currently holds the record of the fastest Formula 1 lap ever completed.
Richert, who has partnered with Casamigos (a tequila created by long-time friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber & Mike Meldman), will be visiting Monza for the 3rd time and has already developed his own history with the circuit.
“I am very excited to be back in Monza as I love the track and am usually very competitive. I have some great memories of close competition but also some difficult memories as the night before our last race here was the moment mononucleosis hammered me and changed the entire 2015 season. Hopefully I can erase some of the harsher moments with a great result this weekend.” – David Richert
Richert Racing would also like to welcome Super Lube Auto Centres as a new corporate partner for the upcoming race weekend in Italy. For over 25 years Super Lube Auto Centres has been helping customers maintain their vehicles in safe working order using trained automotive technicians and certified journeymen mechanics to service customers’ vehicles with the latest technology.
This weekend’s event will be Richert’s first time back in a race car since competing on the streets of Monte Carlo in late May.
