Alessandro Pier Guidi will race the second of the Maserati Quattroportes in the Superstars Series this weekend at Donington Park.
The 27-year-old Italian replaces Andrea Chiesa in the Swiss Team-run car, as teammate to official Maserati Corse driver Andrea Bertolini.
Chiesa shared a sole car with Bertolini at the opening round of the season at Monza, scoring a podium in the second race. He then missed Valencia as the team prepared a second car for him. He then drove that second car at Portimao, scoring two points finishes.
Pier Guidi has a history of racing Maseratis, driving them in both the FIA GT Championship and the Maserati Trofeo. He has also had stints racing in A1 Grand Prix and Superleague Formula.
Pier Guidi’s arrival in Superstars isn’t the only change to the grid. Ivan Tramontozzi has replaced Sandro Bettini at Movisport, whose BMW 500i model is set to be shared during the course of the weekend by Giampiero Pindari and “Linos”, the father of regular driver Francesca Linossi who is set to be absent from Donington. Meanwhile, Mauro Cesari has switched from the MRT Chrysler 300C to a RGA Sportsmanship BMW, driving the car previously raced by Kristian Ghedina.
