Enzo Potolicchio is a Venezuelan racing driver and businessman, who competes in the LMGTE-Am division of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) with an 8Star Motorsports Ferrari 458 Italia GT2.
Potolicchio spent his early career racing Formula Ford, both at home in Venezuela where he was Champion in 2005, and in the American F2000 Championship.
He earned 11 race wins in the 1998 Venezuelan Porsche Supercup and was subsequently presented with the country’s coveted ‘Automobile Driver of the Year’ award that same year.
Potolicchio went on to take away solid top-three results from sporadic outings in the 2009 Ferrari Challenge North America, before achieving back-to-back Ferrari Challenge titles in 2010 and 2011, while dovetailing a Grand-Am campaign.
The Venezuelan emphatically sealed his maiden Grand-Am victory at Mid-Ohio, following that up with a second place in the 2012 24 Hours of Daytona, historic wins in the 6 Hours of Sao Paolo, 12 Hours of Sebring and the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours en-route to the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) LMP2 Drivers’ Championship.
Potolicchio has since formed 8Star Motorsports, pulling together all-star driver line-ups, expert crew, attracting top partners and running full-time TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, IMSA Prototype Lites and FIA WEC campaigns from the team’s state-of-the-art Pompano Beach, Florida facility – the former home of the Champion Audi squad.
