Imola entry list confirms two-driver line-up for Cadillac

The entry list for the upcoming 6 Hours of Imola (19-21 April), round two of the FIA World Endurance Championship, has been revealed.

The 37-car entry sees only one change since the season-opener in Qatar last month. The No. 2 Cadillac will feature just two drivers for the Italian race with Britain’s Alex Lynn and New Zealand’s Earl Bamber confirmed to drive the Cadillac V-Series R Hypercar challenger.

“Imola actually was my first-ever European race,” explained Bamber. “It was 2008 and I won. I have fond memories of Imola because it was my first time racing on a European track and winning made it extra fun.”

The New Zealander, who had raced to that point in Formula BMW Asia, Formula V6 Asia, the Toyota Racing Series, among others, joined ADM Motorsport for the two rounds of the International Formula Master series (aka Formula Super 2000) in September 2008 at Imola. Driving a spec Formula 2000, Bamber placed seventh in the first race and won the second.

“It was an eye-opening event, a great weekend at Imola,” the driver added. “I’m looking forward to going back with Cadillac Racing and compete for another win there.”

Cadillac Racing will be eager to put on a good show in Imola following the team’s recent disqualification from round one in Qatar. The American squad initially finished fourth but a post-race technical inspection found that the team’s rear diffuser strakes were out of specification relative to the homologated height.
