Optimum Motorsport head to Monza for Le Mans Cup’s fourth round
The Wakefield-based crew head to the Monza for the fourth round of the 2022 Michelin Le Mans Cup after a challenging two races during Road to Le Mans earlier this month.
After a successful testing program at the Italian circuit a few months prior, Mark Crader and Alex Mortimer will be looking to refocus after taking on Circuit de la Sarthe, hoping to claim their first championship points of the season.
Autodromo Nazionale Monza is more commonly known as the ‘Temple of Speed’ for many reasons - there’s plenty of straights for flat-out pushing and not too many corners to slow the cars down.
It’s the quickest circuit on the Michelin Le Mans Cup calendar and with the championship heading into the latter stages, the competition on track will certainly be fierce.
Thursday will hand itself over to the two Collective Test sessions, a chance for all drivers to get laps under their belts before official testing on Friday 1 July.
Saturday afternoon will host both the 15-minute qualifying session as well as the race, with lights out at 17:10PM CET.
