Benny Simonsen confirmed as driver for Abarthisti-sponsored Trofeo entry

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

Benny Simonsen, younger brother of GT ace Allan Simonsen, has signed with Pulce Racing to drive the Vospers-Abarthisti Abarth 500 Assetto Corse in the 2010 Trofeo Abarth 500 GB championship.

Benny is making his race circuit debut after a very successful career in Scandinavian karting, winning numerous championships.

He joins the fledging Pulce Racing formed as a spin off from experienced Le Mans Series protagonists JWA Racing. Pulce Racing are one of the few teams to acquire a dealer car – in this case, provided by Vospers, the largest car dealer in the south west of England.

Testing continues on a weekly basis in the UK and will include some warm weather running in southern Spain later this month.

Denise Watt, Managing Director, Pulce Racing said: “Pulce Racing are really excited to be on the Trofeo Abarth grid with a driver of the calibre and speed of Benny. We are going to be championship contenders from race one.”

Race driver Benny Simonsen commented: “I can’t wait for that first race to start, and I’m really pleased to have signed with such a professional team as Pulce Racing. I’m sure we’re going to be up the front fighting for race wins and the championship.”

John Hutchinson, Brand Manager for Vospers Abarth, said: “Vospers are proud to be a part of the Trofeo Abarth 500 GB. Abarth is already very appealing to those who remember the brand’s golden age during the ’50s and ’60s, and the race series will help attract a whole new generation of enthusiasts. Indeed, Vospers are thrilled to be supported by Abarthisti, the UK’s largest online community of Abarth owners and enthusiasts.”

Pulce Racing are also working in conjunction with Abarthisti on a range of tuning, styling and performance upgrades and accessories for all Abarth models. Details of these products will be announced as they become available.
