BMW works driver Jesse Krohn returns to the Italian GT Championship this weekend in Monza. The Finn joins Stefano Comandini and Marius Zug in their quest to secure the Endurance championship.
Leading the standings with 34 points, Comandini and Zug hold a two-point advantage over Imperiale Racing duo Giovanni Venturini and Kikko Galbiati and five over AF Corse’s Antonio Fuoco, Giogio Roda and Alessio Rovera. With only the three best results from the four races being counted towards the championship and 20 points still up for grabs, 19 drivers still have a mathematical chance to win the title.
To increase Comandini and Zug’s chances, Krohn has been drafted to complete the drivers trio for the 3-hour race at Monza, following appearances earlier this season by BMW big guns Alexander Sims and Bruno Spengler. The recent Daytona 24 Hours winner last competed in the Campionato Italiana Gran Turismo in 2019 when he claimed victory with the Ceccato Motors Racing Team-run BMW squad in the season opening race at Monza.
“Our approach will be the same as any other race – to go into the weekend with the utmost determination and concentration,” said BMW Team Italia team manager Roberto Ravagli. “The standings are too tight to allow you to run by calculations, it will be necessary to be in the right place at the right time and this asks a total commitment from the guys in the box, on the wall and the drivers. It will undoubtedly be a nice weekend and I hope that the many fans who will follow us from home enjoy it.”
The final race of the Italian GT Endurance championship goes green on Sunday at 13:20 CET and can be watched live on the Italian GT Facebook page.
