Italy officialises a complete Team at the FIA Motorsport Games with the new entry Andrea Rosso in the Formula 4 Cup category. The 2003 born Turin-based young driver will therefore be part of the national team that will wear the Italian colours during the Motorsport Games, a new international format this year in Rome from 31 October to 3 November.

Andrea Rosso is one of the emerging talents of the Italian youth sector. After showing his talent in the Italian ACI Karting Championship, this year he has participated in 4 of the 7 appointments of the Italian F4 Championship Powered by Abarth, a championship conceived and launched by ACI Sport in 2014 and which this year also showed and confirmed its success, with peaks of subscribers that have touched forty and coming from all over the world. Hungaroring, Misano, Imola but, above all, Vallelunga served the sixteen-year-old from Turin to refine his technique driving the single-seater. On the asphalt of the Roman circuit, Rosso made his seasonal debut. Right there where he had already driven the first kilometres with an F4 participating in the 15th Federal Supercorso in November 2018. In March he had instead participated in the 1st ACI Sport snow-ice stage in Livigno, another activity managed and organized by the ACI Federal School Sport "Michele Alboreto", which offered Rosso the chance to experiment with an alternative fund and improve his driving skills. Now it will be the turn of the FIA Motorsport Games, the umpteenth opportunity for the boy.

"I am extremely proud - Andrea explains enthusiastically - to represent Italy in an international sporting event of this level. I hope to show the best of me. I have a lot of curiosity to discover the car with which we will race for the Formula 4 Cup. This year I made the first championship race at Vallelunga, in addition to the Supercorso, so I will have a small advantage over other drivers. I think I have a good knowledge of the circuit and already have several references with an F4, so I will do my best to put them to good use. But I haven't competed since July, so this could be a small disadvantage. For the moment we have not yet decided anything for next year, the only certainty is that of wanting to continue racing on a single-seater. Maybe this participation in Motorsport Games could be a springboard for 2020. "
