For Team Owner Giacomo Mattioli competing in multiple series in different countries is an exciting time for Scuderia Corsa.
“It is great to see the growth of our programs,” Mattioli said. “This weekend was an quick turn around for Ed coming off the Indianapolis 500 weekend for two races. As well for Cooper and Toni to compete in Detroit then change focus to Le Mans.
