“I am glad to take part in the Blancpain GT Series again, which is always highly competitive," Mikhail Aleshin shared. “I will represent SMP Racing, driving the Ferrari F488 of the Italian AF Corse team. Our teams have been successfully cooperating for a long time - together they have won many competitions in different classes. As the experience of last year showed, the speed of our car is high, the team is wonderful and ready to meet any challenges. My teammates Davide Rigon and Miguel Molina are professional drivers, we worked very well together in the previous season. So, I think that this year we have all the chances to put the puzzle together.”
