Doeblin and his GT4 going for it in the Trofeo

25/04/2010 - Vallelunga
Olivier Doeblin was one of the drivers who tested the GranTurismo MC GT4 in the pre-season test session.

The model differs from the Trofeo because of its engine control unit that limits the power to 420 bhp and for the size of the rear tyres.

"I will compete in the Trofeo GranTurismo MC in my GT4", began Doeblin, "as I think it is a real challenge taking on more powerful cars. This car is quick but it moves around more because of the smaller tyres. The tyre consumption is also different. It is very fun to drive and, at the same time, accessible in terms of purchase price and running costs.

As if that weren't all, the car is also great to look at; it is a real masterpiece. I really liked how the car coped in the wet as the GT4 was easy to handle and second guess even without ABS. This is what impressed me most: you can turn on the pace from the first time you get behind the wheel safe in the knowledge that the chassis even compensates for the odd driver mistake
".

Doeblin makes a return to racing after a twenty-year break: "getting back into competition will be a bit like starting again from zero and so my only expectations will be to get to know the car and learn how to get the most out of it. On the other hand, the aim for 2011 is to be ready for the European GT4 championship as well as the Trofeo".
