Matteo Cairoli is ready for his GT Open debut

Matteo Cairoli’s 2023 season collects another duty: the driver from Como, already racing in other international series such as the FIA World Endurance Championship and the European Le Mans Series, will join the grid of the second round of the International GT Open on the iconic track of Spa-Francorchamps.

Currently busy preparing the 24H of the Nürburgring, where Cairoli will race on May 20-21 with Rutronik Racing to try and repeat his performance of 2021, the 26-year-old will then fly to Belgium to test for the 24 Hours of Spa on May 23-24 before competing in the GT Open race. Making his debut in the GT Sport Organización main series, Cairoli will race with the new Huber Motorsport’s line-up. The German team was founded by Reinhard Huber in 2008 and managed to reach many successes in national and international racing during the last few years. Antares Au will be his teammate, one of the most experienced drivers from Hong Kong who managed to stick out in the Asian Le Mans Series; the two will be at the wheel of the newest Porsche 992, a car that the 26-year-old knows really well.

This weekend Matteo Cairoli will race at the 24h of the Nürburgring, which will start at 3:30 PM on Saturday, May 20. Then, the week after will see his debut in the endurance GT Open race, starting Sunday, May 28 at 12:45 PM, on the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.

Matteo Cairoli
I’m really happy to be able to race at the second round of the International GT Open, it’s a very competitive championship so I can’t wait to go on track to do my best. I want to thank Huber Motorsport for giving me this opportunity and I’m really excited to race with them on such an iconic track like Spa-Francorchamps. My focus is still on the 24H of the Nürburgring: it’s a very challenging race and probably the one of the most important of all season so I’m working a lot with the team to make sure we will get there as prepared as possible to collect a great result.”
