WEC – FIA ROAD ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIP

 

Our RACING service works hand-in-hand with the riders and their race teams from the first concept designs to the finished creations that always enclose the SAKARTDESIGN brand features.

ROBERTO LACORTE has chosen SAKARTDESIGN for the development of his new helmets and graphics since 2016.

For the upcoming 2019-2020 season SAKARTDESIGN has developed a total restyling of his storic graphics on the STILO shell, enhancing and renewing the stylistic features.

The participation in the World Endurance Championship-WEC 2019-2020 represents the natural step for the Cetilar Racing Team, completely made of italian drivers: Roberto Lacorte, Giorgio Sernagiotto and Andrea Belicchi.

Roberto Lacorte will use the new helmet by SAKARTDESIGN also during the important 24 Hours of Le Mans 2019, the 87th running of the legendary endurance race that will take place on June 15-16, 2019.
