I just loved to stand around their pits to listen to the crew speak Italian!!! Don't understand a word but it sure sounds neat!! Ever notice how most of their words end in vowels?

Beautiful car, fantastic design and fabrication, very professional operation. They should have the record.

I did the same thing in Tech! They came prepared, I do not know who they were in contact with but they had an extensive diary to back things up as they went through tech.

Paging Nathan Stewart, as a tech guy can you lend us some insight into this car? You made a couple comments to me about how nice it was.

That IRL engine packed a punch.  Fabio, Are you running it as a 3.5L or did you bump it to a 4.0L?  La dolce vita cheers Tony

It seems to me there is much more to that car than just an engine.

Congratulations, fellows. A marvelous accomplishment.

Besides that you make good red wine.

Great guys, beyond savvy and their pit coffee was even better than the French guys - that's saying something!

Congrats to Fabio and company on a great reward from a great effort! You inspired a lot of people over a week's time...

Dear friends
Dear friends
I wish to sincerely thanks all the people that helped us and encouraged our participation to 2011 speed week.
Too many to list and it include the SCTA staff , partecipants and spectators.
I will never forget all the people that show to us their sympathy and their very helpful suggestions.
Under the technical point of view GUS GUS debut was definitively a success considering our lack of experience but under the emotional point of view my teammates and I got even more.

Back to today we are extremely anxious to get the car back sometimes mid october to strip it and start working at GUs GUs next step forward bigger engine/s ...

will keep you posted !

ciao a tutti e most important Grazie !

Fabio, it was a pleasure to meet and talk to you. Your build is awesome and you have every right to brag and be proud. You did what many have tried to do and went home with a neat pair of hats. Congrats and look forward to seeing you next year.

Congratulations Fabio on a impressive and successful build.
My boy "Gus" requested that I take a photo of him and "Gus Gus", but I was busy and forgot.
I hope to see you next year so I can repair the afore mentioned damages.
