The idea of this second meeting emerged from a conversation between Benj and TX3_Yunalesca during the Round5 broadcast on the BenjxMotors during the 2020 edition. The staff was sensitive to this proposal, thanks to them.
The theme of this Round 2 is Brazil.
First of all as a nod to one of these prestigious drivers Emerson Fittipaldi, born in São Paulo in 1946 and who will celebrate his 75th Winter on December 12th. In 1972, at the age of 25, he became the youngest World Champion in the history of F1. This record will stand until 2005, when it will be dethroned by a young Spanish prodigy, Fernando Alonso, then 24 years old since 29 July 2005.
Emerson Fittipaldi's achievements include:
-The 1969 British Formula 3 Championship title.
-2 victories in the Brazilian International Formula 2 Tournament in 1971 and 1972.
-2 World Championship titles in Formula 1 in 1972 and 1974.
-1 CART Championship title in 1989 and 2 victories in the Indianapolis 500 in 1989 and 1993.
The Fittipaldi EF7 is a mid-engined sports car. It is the first vehicle of the Fittipaldi Motors LLC car company. It is also the first Supercar to be produced in Brazil. The EF7 was initially released only for the Gran Turismo Sport as a Gran Turismo Vision, until Brazilian F1 and IndyCar driver Emerson Fittipaldi announced that he would start production of the car.
The design was developed by Pininfarina under the creative supervision of Fabio Filippini. Only 39 units will be produced. 39 comes from the 39 F1 and Indycar victories that Emerson has achieved.
Finally, the track that will welcome us is none other than the Autodromo José Carlos Pace. 1985 it was named after the former F1 driver who died in a plane crash in 1977. It is still more widely known by its former name of "Circuit de Interlagos".
Located in the southern part of the city of São Paulo in the Interlagos district. This circuit is one of the few that runs counter-clockwise. The current layout dates from the 1990s when the original circuit was shortened. The current track has a very long fast section, fast corners as well as some rather slow areas. Interlagos is an interesting circuit as it follows the hilly topography of the terrain which makes it more challenging to drive.
We look forward to seeing you, in a Carnival and Brazilian Samba atmosphere, on the 16th, 17th and 18th of April 2021 for Round 2 of the GTfusiOn GT Sport Team World Championship 2021
