Faded win for Andrea Caldarelli in Daytona 24 hours

17-02-2019

Andrea Caldarelli was forced to an early end on his 2019 Daytona 24 hours appearance. The 28-year-old driver, send by Lamborghini Squadra Corse to defend Paul Miller Racing’s colors, had to retire with 5 hours left to the end of the race. The potential shown, despite the final result, was excellent. During the night, Andrea drove his Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO to the leadership of the race in the GTD class, but the race was affected by a heavy rain, who called red flag twice. Andrea was also able to set third fastest lap time in the race, before being forced to retire due a heavy crash.

“It’s a bit frustrating that there are cars still on track and five hours to go. We were on the lead lap, and we led the race during the night as well. It’s a shame but this is racing, and this is why we love it, we hate it – we have these days. The race so far had been great; we were quick – all four of us did a great job. It just feels really upsetting because I think we could have really had a chance to win. But it is what it is. Unfortunately, with this rain, I didn’t see the point to go green again, it was really strange. Anyway, I am really happy about the work we had done – all four of us – and I hope we come back here and win next year”.
