His maiden GT race will be behind the wheel of the 488 GT3 run by Scuderia Baldini 27 with Eddie Cheever III as teammate, as the 2016 Italian GT3 Champion on the 458 Italia of the team from Rome will be at his comeback. Mattia Drudi will also make his debut in the Italian GT with Bar Baruch on the car of Audi Sport Italia.

Title fight. The Israeli driver is currently second in the championship, nine points shy of classification leader Stefano Gai who will be on Scuderia Baldini’s Ferrari 488 GT3 alongside Giancarlo Fisichella. The third place in the standings is currently of Daniel Zampieri and Giacomo Altoè (Lamborghini by Antonelli Motorsport) 14 points adrift. The list of title contenders includes also Daniel Mancinelli and Andrea Fontana (Ferrari 488-Easy Race) that are 23 points short of the top. Another debut will take place at Composit Motorsport, that will line up a Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 for Maurizio Ceresoli and Satoshi Tanaka.
