Emanuele Naspetti (born February 24, 1968 in Ancona[1]) is a racing driver and entrepreneur from Italy.

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

He makes his racing debut at 12 y.o. and spends seven years in karting competitions (1980-1986) participating to more than 200 races and reaching successes in Italian and International events.

Formula 3[edit]

In 1987 he is called by the Forti Corse Team to compete in the Italian Formula 3 Championship. In 1988, again with the Dallara-Alfa Romeo of Forti Corse, he’s crowned Italian Formula 3 Champion.

Formula 3000[edit]

In 1989 he is in the FIA International Formula 3000 Championship with Roni Motorsport Team. An extremly good debut season that makes possible the call by Eddie Jordan Racing team for the following year to replace the reigning champion Jean Alesi (moved to Formula 1). In 1991 he is back with Forti Corse and very close to the title with 4 races won. In the meantime he wins his debut race (Varano, Class S2) in the Italian SuperTouring Championship with the official Peugeot 405 racer.

Formula 1[edit]

In 1992 he makes his debut in Formula One at the wheel of March-Ilmor. An important choice that forces him to abandon the FIA International Formula 3000 Championship while leading a few races before the end. The adventure in Formula 1 continues in 1993 with the Jordan Grand Prix, being also the official test driver. In the same year he takes part to some races of the Japanese Formula 3000 Championship.

Touring and GT cars[edit]

Since 1994 the career of Emanuele Naspetti moves to the saloon cars of different SuperTouring Championshps. With 27 successes he becomes the symbol of BMW’s sporting heritage and in 1997 wins the Italian SuperTouring Championship. In the same year he participates to the 24 Hours of Spa, winning the classification reserved to diesel cars and reaching the third overall place. In 2000 he participates to the 24 Hours of Le Mans driving a Lola-Judd, while the adventure with GT cars begins in 2001 with a Ferrari 550 Maranello of Rafanelli Team (FIA GT Championship). In 2002 and 2003 he’s in the U.S. (American Le Mans Series) driving a Ferrari 550 Maranello. In 2004 he returnes to Europe, again in the FIA GT Championship, at the wheel of a Ferrari 575 of GPC Team. In 2005, a call from the legendary Don Panoz, brings him back to the American scene, driving a Panoz in the 12 Hours of Sebring. In 2006 he’s at the wheel of a BMW in the reborn Italian SuperTouring Championship (five wins and second overall position), while in 2009 he takes part to the Porsche Carrera Cup in Italy winning the race in Adria.
