Shattering the glass ceil­ing

Wheels (Australia) - - Red Line -

Indycar podium fin­isher Si­mona De Sil­ve­stro has signed to race Su­per­cars in Aus­tralia for three years, start­ing in 2017. The team for which the 2010 Indy 500 Rookie of the Year will drive for is yet to be con­firmed, with De Sil­ve­stro mak­ing the un­prece­dented move of sign­ing with Su­per­cars it­self. How­ever, Nis­san - which has re­cently recom­mit­ted to Su­per­cars un­til the end of 2018 - has en­tered an Altima for De Sil­ve­stro and co-driver Re­nee Gra­cie at this year’s Bathurst 1000. The 28-year-old Swiss in­ter­na­tional last year raced in the For­mula E se­ries, but will switch to Su­per­cars full time from 2017.
