ENERGY CORSE MANAGER

MIKE PANIGADA

After taking the reins of the Energy Corse team, Mick Panigada made it a true winning machine. Crowned CIK-FIA European Champion on numerous occasions and a winner of the World Cup, Energy Corse has trained a large number of drivers, who then entered the motorsport industry. The dynamic system for young drivers that the Italian has set up explains the partnerships he has created with influential personalities, such as Gwenaël Lagrue who spotted Esteban Ocon (F1) and Dorian Boccolacci (GP3), and teams like Lotus and Mercedes. The young Andrea Kimi Antonelli, a current member of the Energy team, is also part of the Young Driver programme set up by Mercedes.

TEAM MANAGER

LUIGINA GUERRINI

In an environment composed mostly of men, Luigina Guerrini was able to impose her charisma, skills and natural authority, which push each driver to give his best. It must be said that Luigina has extensive achievements. Winner of the Women's Karting World Cup when she raced in the 70s, she then collaborated with major teams, actively participating in many victories in World and European Championships. She has managed the career of her nephew, Davide Fore, the five-time World Champion.

> SUPPORT :

SIMONE SORIO

Luigina Guerrini and Simone Sorio are a relentless duo who have worked together for over 20 years. Many teams would like to take advantage of their technical skills and experience. During a meeting, Simone does not just look for perfection when preparing the equipment. For him, the values ​​he transmits to the driver and the advice he distils throughout the event are just as important while on the road to success.

> COACH :

MIKE WILSON

Turning a driver into a champion is Mike Wilson's role. With six World Championships to his name, the Anglo-Italian is the most successful driver in the history of karting. Today, he puts all his knowledge of racing at the service of the youngest drivers. Current Formula 1 drivers Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll have passed through his expert hands. For Wilson, winning is never a coincidence, but the result of intense and rigorous work.
