Marcello Puglisi (born May 17, 1986 in Trescore Balneario) is an Italian racing driver.

Career[edit]

Formula Renault[edit]

Puglisi began his car racing career by driving in the Italian Formula Renault Championship and Formula Renault Eurocup in 2003. He remained in the Italian series for three years, with a best finish of 13th in the drivers' championship. In 2003 and 2005 he competed in a total of six Eurocup events, failing to score any points in the process.

Formula Three[edit]

In 2005, Puglisi also drove in one race of the Italian Formula Three Championship, scoring three points at his first and only attempt at the formula.

Formula 3000[edit]

Puglisi drove in both the Euroseries 3000 and the rival Formula 3000 International Masters championship for 2006. He scored no points in the former, but secured tenth place in the drivers' championship in the latter.

International Formula Master[edit]

In 2007, Puglisi competed in the inaugural International Formula Master season. In his most successful year in motorsport yet, he won one race on his way towards fifth in the drivers' championship. He remained in the category for 2008.

Sports Car Racing[edit]

Puglisi also drove in a single round of the Le Mans Series in 2007 for the Scuderia Lavaggi team in the LMP1, scoring no points.

GP2 Series[edit]

Puglisi was signed by the Piquet Sports team to drive in the first GP2 Asia Series season for 2008. Driving alongside compatriot Marco Bonanomi, he did not score any points. Having committed to another season of Formula Master, he nevertheless took his opportunity to compete in the 2008 GP2 Series proper as a replacement for Davide Valsecchi in the Durango team, who was injured in a high-speed crash at the second round of the championship in Turkey.[1] Puglisi took part in the next round of the championship, but was then replaced by Ben Hanley.[2]
