Costantino Peroni ended his 2015 season with a sensational result in the final round of the JK Tyre Racing Championship. It was a short adventure for him, as the Milan-based racer only began his season last August, coming back to motorsport in a winning fashion after stopping to pursuit his studies.
Driving a Mygale FB02 sponsored by renowned Indian tire manufacturer JK Tyre, Peroni cruised to his first pole position of the year in the fourth and final round of the series. Lining-up at Buddh International Circuit, the same venue that hosted Formula 1 until 2013, and in front of more than 50.000 spectators, Peroni took a valuable second place in race 1 before cruising to his second victory in the series.
The foundations to his victory were laid at the start, thanks to the pole captured with his personal second fastest laptime. And it was a large victory: Costantino built an healthy margin straight away and quickly took-off to cross the line with 7 seconds on his closest follower. Together with series champion Vishnu Prasad, Peroni was the only driver to complete all the races totalling 2992 kilometers.
“I’m really happy to have scored another really valuable result. Even though I had hoped for it at the start, I don’t think it would have been possible to win a championship that was completely new for me, from the cars to the tires and the tracks. By the way, the crowds here in India are incredible. From the podium today, I felt like we were in front of a full Formula 1 Grand Prix grandstand. I thank Eurointernational, who prepared the cars for JK Tyre, and the promoters, who really made me feel at home. I also want to thank the mechanics that followed me throughout the year, Maurizio and Giuseppe, and Antonio Ferrari, who helped me learn and pushed me when it mattered. A big thank you also goes to my coach driver David Fumanelli, who gave me a great hand, in addition to my sponsors, friends and family. I wouldn’t be here without them”.
