Alex Kapadia has been retained by Murphy Prototypes for the next round of the European Le Mans Series at Imola.
After his highly impressive debut for the team at Silverstone last month where he set fastest laps and sectors during the race, team owner Greg Murphy has decided to keep Alex in the car for round two of the series. Murphy commented “We knew Alex was quick before Silverstone but we did not realise how quick. During the race he was fastest on circuit for the whole of his double stint and was also very professional out of the car. We are very happy to retain him for Imola”.
Kapadia said “I am very grateful to Greg for giving me another chance in the team. After the puncture at Silverstone dropped us out of contention for the win, it is great to have another shot to help bring the team the win they deserve.”
Kapadia will share the Hertz Car Sales sponsored car with ex F1 co-drivers Karun Chandhok and Rodolfo Gonzalez for the 4 hour race and is looking forward to teaming up with them again. “Karun and Rodolfo are obviously extremely quick drivers and we worked well together at Silverstone. I think we have one of the strongest driver line ups in the race.”
The race takes place at Imola, Italy on Sunday 18th May and will televised live on Motors TV at 12.45pm GMT and also on www.radiolemans.com.
