Zarco and Pirro of Pramac Ducati train with the Lamborghini Squadra Corse drivers at the Drivers Lab in Sant’Agata Bolognese
Zarco, second in the MotoGP standings, and Pirro, a multiple-time CIV champion and Ducati test rider, visited the new Lamborghini Squadra Corse multipurpose facility and the hangar reserved for the Essenza SCV12 track hypercars, before working with official Lamborghini drivers Albert Costa and Franck Perera in a specific training session for endurance racing, conducted by Squadra Corse physiotherapist Jose Poletti.
“It was very interesting to train with the Squadra Corse drivers,” commented Zarco, “as well as being able to try new technologies and different methods, because it helps you understand a lot of new things”. “With Zarco we’re almost neighbors,” said his fellow countryman Perera, winner of the 2018 24 Hours of Daytona, “and it was interesting to compare training methods and race preparation. We will definitely get together in France to do some sessions together”. Satisfaction also for Costa, the 2019 GT Open champion who took his first steps in motorsport on motorcycles: I’ve always followed the MotoGP and I’m a big fan of motorcycles. It was exciting to train with top riders like Zarco and Pirro, an opportunity that doesn’t happen every day.
At the end of the day, Zarco and Pirro got behind the wheel of two Huracán EVOs and drove to Mugello: “Having the opportunity to combine the world of two wheels with the world of four wheels is always something special,” commented Pirro.
