Perfecto, bellisimo, when it comes to Italian language, I’m all over it. In the past two days I’ve been learning a whole lot more Italian. Specifically, the language of the 458. It all started on the plane as I studied the dials and switches in the cockpit that control the car. It is always tricky learning a new car and the 458 has been no different. Taking the time to get a feel for the car, finding it’s limits and then finding a flow on the circuit. It has been a steep learning curve, but that’s just the way I like it!
I’m nervous and excited all at the same time as we head in to the race tomorrow. On the one hand, I know what to expect physically from the demanding 24 hour racing, but at the same time, I am still learning the language.
It’ll be an early night tonight, then a very big day tomorrow. I look forward to bringing you the action as it happens. Make sure you follow me on Instagram @liamtalbotracing and on Facebook. You will also be able to listen in to our friends at Radio LeMans for live coverage of the race that kicks off at 4.30pm local time in Belgium.
