Fabio Scherer will contest the third round of the European Le Mans Series in Monza this weekend. At his home race, he hopes for as much support as possible from Swiss fans.

Last weekend, Fabio Scherer completed the 6-hour race for the Endurance Cup in Watkins Glen in New York State as part of the IMSA. Now, the next race on the agenda is the third round of the 2022 European Le Mans Series in Monza. Scherer will compete there for the Inter Europol Competition team. He will share the cockpit of the #43 Oreca LMP2 with his team-mates David Heinemeier Hansson from Denmark and Pietro Fittipaldi from Brazil, as he did last time at Le Mans.

“I didn’t have much time to relax,” says Scherer. “I flew straight home again on Monday after the race. It’s a pity it didn’t work out with the first podium. But instead I’m taking the good flow from the USA with me and hope that I can achieve a top result in Monza at my home race.”

Scherer, who is supported by STOBAG and ATS Banding System, knows the 5.793-kilometre track in the Royal Park very well. And he also has good memories of Monza.

“I started from pole position in Formula 3 in 2019. And last year we scored a commanding victory in the WEC with United Autosports. I like Monza very much. Not just the circuit. Also the surroundings. And of course I hope that as many Swiss fans as possible will come.”

The 23-year-old from Engelberg is still waiting for a sense of achievement in the 2022 ELMS. In Le Castellet at the season opener, Scherer finished eleventh. At the second race in Imola, the former DTM driver finished ninth.

“We haven’t had the necessary racing luck so far. We’ve always had full-course yellow phases at the most inopportune moments. But I am confident for Monza. I hope we can take the good form from Le Mans with us. The car has been very fast lately. And if we have the right set-up, we should have a good chance in Monza.” 

The start of the four-hour race at Monza is at 11.30am on Sunday, 3 July. The race can be followed on Motorsport TV and livestream (www.europeanlemansseries.com). The German channel Motorvision will also broadcast from Monza.
