Scuderia Corsa adds Olivier Beretta for Rolex 24
Scuderia Corsa has added legendary GT driver and six-time ALMS champion, Olivier Beretta to its driver lineup for the upcoming Rolex 24 At Daytona.  The team, which helped Ferrari win the GT manufacturers title in 2012, recently announced its participation at Daytona 24H with two cars.

“I am very happy to have Olivier back with us for Daytona” said team principal Giacomo Mattioli on having Beretta behind the wheel of his #63. “His level of experience and success in endurance racing is unsurpassed and makes him a great addition to our team once again.  Scuderia Corsa is made up of true competitors, and we plan to give the Daytona fans an exciting race.”

This will be Beretta’s third time behind the wheel of the #63 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 458 Italia GT3. For Daytona, Beretta will join 2012 Ferrari Challenge World Champion Alessandro Balzan, Alessandro Pier Guidi, fresh off his victory at the 6 Hours of Vallelunga, as well as 2010 Open GT champion, Marco Frezza.

The second 458 Italia (#64) entered for the Daytona effort will be raced in association with Brazil’s Via Italia Racing Team.  The #64 will be helmed by Via Italia’s Francisco “Chico” Longo, and racing veterans, Rafa Matos, Daniel Serra and Xandinho Negrao.

The team will begin testing on January 4th at Daytona International Speedway in preparation for the Rolex 24 At Daytona, considered the preeminent endurance race in motorsports.  The race will take place January 26-27, 2013 at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.
