Giovanardi confirmed at 888

1 Mins read

Double BTCC Champion Fabrizio Giovanardi has been confirmed as a late last minute entry for the opening rounds of the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, with the Triple Eight Race Engineering outfit alongside 2009 Clio Cup Champion Phil Glew.

43 year old Giovanardi, who won the crown with VX Racing in 2007 and 2008, had been without a drive since the manufacturer withdrew at the end of the 2009 campaign, and had been linked with a number of drives, both in the BTCC and in Europe.

Triple Eight Team Principle is delighted to have the experienced Italian back within the team ranks: “I’m delighted to have Fabrizio back in the team, “He's an absolute class act, as we’ve found out over the last four years.

“He’s had very little mileage, just three miles going up and down the runway at Turweston Aerodrome on Thursday, but I think he can probably remember which way Thruxton goes.

“We’re coming at this weekend from the point of view that we haven’t done much running.”

Similarities between this deal and the deal which saw Jason Plato return in 2009 are easy to see – as it stands, Giovanardi's deal with Triple Eight will last for Thruxton only, Harrison is hoping to extend that to further rounds and added: “It’s a work in progress.”
