The champagne was sweet for the Squadra Corse Garage Italia Americas Ferrari 488 drivers Martin Fuentes and Caesar Bacarella at Utah Motorsports Campus, as they celebrated a Pirelli World Challenge GT Sprint X Amateur class championship with a second place finish and a victory over the two-race weekend.
Race one of the double race weekend produced the team’s only loss of the season, a second place behind the Mercedes-AMG GT3 of David Askew after a scramble for position put the Squadra Corse Ferrari off track and behind the Mercedes. Despite the runner-up spot, the Martin Fuentes and Caesar Bacarella recorded the fastest lap during the race.
The season’s final race went better, producing a final win in the championship season along with another fastest race lap.
With the two-driver GT Sprint X Amateur class championship in hand, the Squadra Corse team of Martin Fuentes and Caesar Bacarella will continue to boost Maxim and sponsors Hublot watches and Alpha Prime Apparel through Fuentes’ participation in the GT Sprint Amateur category for solo drivers upcoming race at Watkins Glen, New York, at the end of August.
