Amici-Prestige

ANDREA AMICI

Andrea Amici was born in Albano Laziale, a town in the province of Rome on 06/27/93.
From an early age he became passionate about engines and thanks to his parents he started racing with karts in 2000.
He made his debut by getting the second position, but the successes came quickly and a few races later Andrea won his first victory and the first of many successes .
His karting career ends with the conquest of 3 regional titles, 2 national titles and as many as 30 national trophies, in addition to the participation for two consecutive years in the European class 100 junior championship, a possibility offered only to the best drivers in the national field.
In 2009 Andrea made his debut in motor racing, a step for the drivers coming from the kart. Participate in the Swiss Formula Renault 2.0 championship concluding the championship with good placings considering his inexperience. In 2010 he took part in the Seat Leon Supercopa championship and almost won the race several times, but he had to settle for two podiums.
2011 is the turning point, but perhaps the most complicated. He made his debut at the age of 17 in the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia, and obtained 2 victories and 2 pole positions in the Targa Tricolore Porsche championship.
The following year, Andrea finished 3rd in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe with 5 wins and 10 podiums. He also won the Bologna MOTOR SHOW in the GT cup category.
In 2013 he was crowned European Champion Lamborghini with 6 wins out of 10 races, and won the 6H of Vallelunga in GT3 class. After the well-deserved promotion in the Italian GT, 2014 is the most unlucky year for the Roman driver. He takes part in the first three appointments, where he achieves two pole positions and a second place in qualifying. Unfortunately the unreliability of the car forces the young driver from Lazio to collect five retreats and a podium in six races. He also participates in pairs with a gentleman in the Super Trofeo Europa (PRO class), where he gets a 3rd place in the championship (2 wins, 6 podiums, 1 pole position).
In 2015, not having found a seat in the Blancpain GT Series due to the limited budget available, he races with the Audi Sport Italia Team, led by Emilio Radaelli in the Italian Gran Turismo Championship. He shares the cockpit with Marco Mapelli, another very experienced and fast youth. Predictions see the Audi duo as favorites, but the first part of the season turns out to be unlucky for the couple due to some breakdowns. It is with the arrival of autumn that the Lamborghini GT3 Junior Program rider manages to get 5 podium finishes, 2 pole positions and the 2 victories that will allow him to finish the championship in 2nd place. In the same year he won the Adria 24h. The following year he won the first title in the history of Lamborghini Squadra Corse, winning the 2016 GT Asia Series.

cemo-Prestige

STEPHANIE CEMO

Stephanie Cemo is originally from Houston, Texas and currently lives in Irvine, CA. Since being a little girl, the love of motorsports has been in her blood and was kicked into high gear 10 years ago with at trip to the drag strip at Houston Raceway Park. This trip led to an 8 month love affair with drag racing until a friend of Stephanie’s invited her to Texas World Speedway to try on road racing. In a period of one weekend, Stephanie moved through the ranks from the beginner to advanced group and was hooked. Two months later, she was asked to be a driving instructor at the track. After four years instructing at two tracks outside Houston, Stephanie decided to move back West after 10 years of being back in her home town.


In 2010, Stephanie moved back to California and quickly felt the lure of the race tracks calling and decided her fourth corvette would be a ZR1. Just about every weekend, you could find her participating in track days and Time Attack events to become more seasoned and achieve faster lap times. After putting in the time learning as many tracks she could get too, along with winning three Time Attack Series Championships in 2014, she decided it was time to try on wheel to wheel racing and added a 2009 purpose built Z06 race car to the mix. Currently, Stephanie is competing in Global Time Attack and Redline Time Attack, and racing in SCCA GT2, NASA ST1 and Trans Am TA3.

Hubbell-Prestige

WILLIAM HUBBELL

Born in San Juan, PR. As a young child I was attracted to cars. My Father raced midgets back in the 50’s and he had some success racing. He would take me too many races as a kid. My Mother was from Argentina and saw Fangio race first hand, she was a racing fan as well. So I guess you can say I grew up surrounded by racing. My Hero’s are many in the racing world, but a few stand out. Mario Andretti as he has raced all types of cars, F1, INDY, NASCAR, IMSA and won multiple races. JPS (Johnnie Player Special) racing car colors as you can tell from my car. Carrol Shelby, for taking on the world of motor racing and beating them at their own game. Enzo Ferrari and Lamborghini for creating such wonderful works of art we drive. I enjoy all types of racing but my heart is with road racing, where I currently drive my Coyote Chassis DP Corvette.
