Shepherd Micro Racing have announced the signing of 2008 IFMAR World Champion Daniele Ielasi to their team. Daniele stated:
“It’s a great return for me, but compared to the past where I was exclusively a Shepherd driver, today i will also take care of the team Shepherd Italia in collaboration with Giovanni Bianchi BRacing at all races, thus increasing technical assistance at the track. My aim will also be to form an even more united Team Italia, to find new drivers who want to join the Team, to create a social group where they can share together set-up, information and experiences in the competition fields , above all, try to create a more direct line with the Shepherd Factory and with the drivers of the factory team. That said, there will certainly be plenty of tests on the track that I will do in the first person, and maybe even a few races in the next season.
See you soon guys !!!”
