The 23-year-old driver from Lucca races with Ombra racing from Bergamo. Objective: the title in the 2023 world championship

Dream big, despite his young age (23 years), Richard PeraTuscan driver, born in Marlia, a small village in the province of Lucca, the only Italian rookie in the world championship Porsche Super Cup: debut tomorrow (May 28) in Montecarlo, after the cancellation of the Imola stage. Objective: the title in the 2023 world championship (Formula 1 event support with around 445 million TV shares worldwide).

«In the official tests at Imola and Silverstone it was the first time I drove a Porsche 992 GT3 Cup, I had excellent sensations, there was an immediate feeling with the car», said the Tuscan driver. Moral: podium times, with Pera immediately in front (30 riders participating in the World Championship). Very few tenths separate the Italian from the top drivers and teams who have gravitated to the Porsche Supercup for several years now. «Dreams are built with sacrifice and work. Talent is not enough. It would be nice to fight for the world title already in the first year», continued Pera, who rides with the Bergamo-based Ombra racing team.

Step by step, together with the Identity Event agency, he will try to climb Everest in the world championship, with Porsche AG which has set its sights on the Tuscan boy to promote him to factory driver. It all started when he was 4 years old, driving go-karts together with his father (he was crowned Italian champion). In 2016 he made his debut in covered wheel machines in the championship Porsche Cayman GT4, where he immediately won the Italian championship. Professional driver in GT competitions, i.e. covered-wheel machines known as «Granturismo», Pera is now preparing to make the great leap in quality in the world of motor racing. In addition to the World Championship, he will participate (for the fourth time) in the 24 Hours of Le Mans (he finished second on his debut in 2020). After Montecarlo, the Porsche Supercup will go to Spielberg (June 30/July 2); Silverstone (July 8/9); Budapest (21/23 July); Spa-Francorchamps (28/30 July); and Zandvoort (25/27 August). Closing then in Italy, in Monza (1/3 September).
