Krohn Racing and Risi Competizione will combine drivers for the upcoming TUDOR United SportsCar Championship test at Sebring this week.
Nic Jonsson will be driving the No. 57 Krohn Racing Ferrari 458 at Sebring, but will be joined by Risi’s Matteo Malucelli, who is returning to the cockpit for the first time since suffering concussion in the horrific crash with Memo Gidley at Daytona.
“Krohn Racing is happy to have Matteo joining us for the test, as it’s always good to get a fresh perspective from our cockpit,” said Jonsson. “Matteo obviously knows how to drive Ferraris, and he might be able to give us some pointers and help us get some reference points that I can add to.
“I’m looking forward to him getting some time in our Krohn car at the test and I’m really keen to hear any information he can offer about the car and the track. We’re going to go through our normal test program for our Ferrari and make sure everything is in the condition we want for the race.”
The two teams, though, already share technical details at some TUDOR Championship events, with Sebring being one of them.
“We’re fortunate to have the technical support from Risi Competizione again, as we had for the 24 Hours of Daytona and will continue to have moving forward. It’s always good to share information between two teams”, continued Jonsson .
“Krohn Racing and Risi Competizione already share a workshop and we work together well. I think it’s great that we can run two separate teams but under the same tent, because we can both learn so much from each other. We can have ears and eyes from every perspective. Our engineers, mechanics, and drivers can work together to get a well-balanced and fast car for the race.”
