WeatherTech Racing Tests GTE Pro Ferrari for Le Mans 24
Fiorano, Italy, (September 12, 2020) - WeatherTech Racing has completed the rollout of the team's Ferrari 488 Evo GTE Pro entry for the 24 Hours of Le Mans to run at the Circuit de la Sarthe, in Le Mans, France, September 19-20.
Cooper MacNeil (Hinsdale, Ill.), Toni Vilander (Kankaanpää, Finland), and Jeff Segal (Miami, Fla.) will drive the No. 63 Ferrari GTE 488 Evo in France. Segal was at the Ferrari test track in Fiorano today doing the rollout and systems check on the team's red, white and blue Le Mans entry.
"With the limited track time this year at Le Mans we wanted to make sure we did a basic systems check on the car before arriving at the track," Segal said. "The team had everything in order and the WeatherTech Racing Ferrari performed as it should during our roll out at the Ferrari Fiorano test track today. We did about 20 laps, cooled it down, threw the cover on it and loaded it on the truck and sent it onto Le Mans. We're ready."
The Scuderia Corsa led team will begin set-up on Monday in France and the WeatherTech Racing Ferrari will go through technical scrutineering at 9:30 a.m. CET on Wednesday morning. The cars will hit the 8.4-mile (13.626 km) track for the first time on Thursday morning at 10 a.m. CET.
MotorTrend TV, download the app, will carry all of the action, practice, qualifying and the race live. The race will start at 2:30 p.m. CET (7:30 a.m. ET) on Saturday, September 19.
