A WINNING QUARTET
The Grasser Racing Team, composed of the successful racing drivers Mirko Bortolotti, Rolf Ineichen, Franck Perera, and Rik Breukers, easily grabbed the GT Daytona class honors during the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the 56th edition of this famous 24-hour sports car endurance race, held each year at the Florida’s Daytona Beach.
An incredible success for the world-wide loved Lamborghini – the Italian manufacturer of luxury supercars, SUVs and sports cars headquartered in Sant’Agata Bolognese – ….and the first 24-hour race win for the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 #11.
This supercar driven by this Austrian team – which has already won the 2017 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup – has conquered the podium under the guidance of the Italian racing driver and official pilot of the “Lamborghini Squadra Corse” (the Lamborghini division specializing in motorsports), Mirko Bortolotti.
This award-winning young champion has given to the Italian brand its first success in this prestigious American race, only three years after the Lamborghini Huracán GT3’s debut in Florida.
BUT ALSO A THIRD PLACE…
The Lamborghini’s victory was, however, double. The Huracán GT3 driven by the American team Paul Miller Racing, composed of the young yet talented race drivers Andrea Caldarelli, Bryan Sellers, Madison Snow and Bryce Miller, obtained the third step on the podium.
Lamborghini welcomed with utmost enthusiasm the victory.
Stefano Domenicali, the Italian company’s Chairman and CEO, immediately reacted with fervor.
“First of all I wish to begin by complementing the Grasser Racing Team and the Paul Miller Racing Team for these extraordinary results. The first and third prize in the prestigious GTD class represent something certainly outstanding, since this has been achieved at one of the world’s most important sports car endurance races. Of course, this would not have been possible without these racing pilots who impeccably drove our supercars. (…) I’d like to thank everyone who, day after day, passionately work in our Sant’Agata Bolognese Motorsport…” Domenicali said.
