Milan, 20 December 2022 – Sababa Security S.p.A. – a leading Italian cybersecurity operator providing an integrated and customised offer of managed products and services to protect different IT and OT environments from cyber threats, listed on Euronext Growth Milan – announces the support of young motorsport talents in collaboration with Pro Racing, the Italian motorsport academy, aimed at scouting and developing talents in motorsports, from Formula 4 to GT and karting.
Despite being apparently two different worlds, cybersecurity and motorsport have traits in common, from gathering information in order to take fact-based decisions to analysing data to devise alternative strategies. Considering this, Sababa Security – in addition to being actively present on the automotive market with a range of solutions to protect the increasingly connected vehicles – decided to take the field: being the only cybersecurity company in Italy to have a branch office and customers in Uzbekistan, the company decided to team up with Ismail Akhmed – the Uzbek driver belonging Marco Cioci’s Pro Racing roster and competing in the Formula 4 championship – on his path to Formula 1.
Marco Cioci has a long career in major national and international Gran Turismo competitions, making him one of the most experienced Italian drivers still active today. He took part in championships such as the WEC (World Endurance Championship), GT Open, Asian Le Mans Series, Michelin Le Mans Cup and the legendary Le Mans 24H, Spa Francorchamps 24H, Dubai 24H, collecting numerous victories and podiums.
“On December 8 and 9, Sababa Security was at the Jerez circuit in Andalusia for the two-day Formula 4 testing session. Thanks to Marco, we had the opportunity to watch the test race from the backstage, enjoying the Garage Tour, staying together with the technical team and engineers, as well as joining post-race data analysis by the drivers” commented Alessio Aceti, CEO of Sababa Security.
“Ismail is the first Uzbek driver to reach such important international championships in motorsport. Technically he is growing, and our goal is to get to Formula 1, making him the first Uzbek driver to do so”, commented Marco Cioci. “There will be a lot of work to do, but Ismael is ready and will move to Europe to be with the team. The Spanish championship was definitely an important step for our driver before making the move from Formula 4 to Formula 3”.
