Marciello Claims Pole Position in Macau GT World Cup
Italian/Swiss driver Raffaele Marciello has secured pole position in the Macau GT World Cup ahead of his anticipated move to BMW. Marciello, who will leave his current team after this weekend, set an impressive time of 2m14.542s in his Team Landgraf Mercedes-AMG GT3.
This time was more than a second faster than the existing lap record, which Marciello himself had set during qualifying for the previous edition of the GT World Cup in 2019.
“The car felt fantastic today,” Marciello said of his performance. “I pushed hard during the session and managed to find that extra bit of speed in the final moments.”
The Macau Grand Prix has always been a highly anticipated event in the world of motorsport. Its challenging street circuit and high-speed straights provide a thrilling race for both drivers and spectators.
Marciello’s pole position puts him in a strong position for the upcoming main race, which is scheduled to take place tomorrow.
