Satellite Racing Welcomes New Additions

Satellite Racing is pleased to announce the arrival of several drivers to bolster its already adept rFactor 2 lineup. With immediate effect, Satellite will also modify its lineup for the current Virtual Endurance Championship (VEC), the premiere endurance series in rFactor 2, making the already competitive organization that much more potent for the six race championship.


With the additions, Satellite is able to expand its four-car effort in the series to six cars, which will now include two LMP2 entries. Joining the team are:

  • Luca D'Amelio

  • Davide Arduini

  • Francesco Morante

  • Riccardo Tarlazzi

  • Lorenzo De Ciutiis

  • Marco Slanzi

  • Leonardo Pupo

  • Andrew Hollom

The drivers arrive to Satellite having already competed in high level simracing for some time. "In the short time this group was together, we achieved results instantly and we feel the reason was mainly due to the group effort we were having in each race," said Luca D'Amelio, one of the drivers in the newly-formed #35 LMP2 entry. "Team is important to us, so finding a spot where we could keep the group together was important. Satellite was at the top of the list for us, so for us to stay together while moving to a top-end team is amazing and exactly what we had hoped. We look forward to working together and are excited for what the future reserves for us!"
