"2018 could have not started better" stated Enrico Borghi. "The opportunity for me and my team to be part of the most important race in the world is a great honor. I have represented Porsche since the beginning of my career and being in Le Mans as the only Italian team is a dream come true".

Drivers’ lineup has been defined for the first seasonal round of the European Le Mans Series championship which is scheduled on April, 15th. The flagship drivers for Ebimotors team at the 4 Hours of Le Castellet are: Raymond Narac, Riccardo Pera and Fabio Babini.

Fabio Babini the FIA Gold rated driver has been one of the main contenders in the 2017 Le Mans Cup, and will definitely be back on the grid eager to tackle the new challenges of this exciting season. This is an important opportunity for Riccardo Pera, who, at the early age of eighteen, is driving the Porsche 911 RSR car in an international championship. This is his third consecutive season in Enrico Borghi’s team. Theirs is a partnership of confidence and respect which is based on the talent of both this young boy and this team celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. Thanks to his victory in the Cayman GT4 Trophy Italia in 2016 and to his title of deputy champion in the single branding Porsche Carrera Cup Italia in 2017. The `bronze´ driver, who is joining Riccardo Pera and Fabio Babini, is not a newcomer in the race world. Raymond Narac, French, boasts a huge experience in driving Porsche cars. He has taken part to the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans several times and he won, while driving a 997 GT3 RSR car, in the LM GTE Am category in the Le Mans Series championship in 2011. The Italian-French crew in the LMGTE category is driving a Porsche 911 RSR #80 car, whose livery, which is going to be made official today, differs from the traditional Ebimotors colours. The car livery is not the only change for the Team from Como. A new logo has been created. The last two letters, RS, have been painted with the Italian flag colours to celebrate the beginning of the new project in the international championship.

Thanks to all our partners and in particular Gnutti and Terno Scorrevoli, two important Italian companies that have been believing in this project and have been trusting on us.

all it's ready for the official test scheduled for April 9th and 10th at Le Castellet, France.
