In Lamborghini’s case, the Italian automaker has joined forces with Austria’s Grasser Racing Team (GRT). The team will field two Huracán GT3s: a number 19 car driven by Fabio Babini, Jeroen Mul, and Andrew Palmer; and a number 63 car driven by Adrian Zaugg, Mirko Bortolotti and Giovanni Venturini.
Fabio Babini and Adrian Zaugg were already involved in the Huracán GT3’s development in 2014 as the official Lamborghini Squadra Corse (Lambo’s new motorsport division) test drivers, while Mirko Bortolotti was appointed as a works driver at the end of the 2014 motorsport season.
The Blancpain Endurance Series has its opening round in Monza on the weekend of 11-12 April: the same weekend that sees the kick-off of the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Europe one-make series, where the Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo race car competes.
As for the Huracán GT3, it features an FIA roll cage integrated into the aluminum-carbon chassis for a total curb weight of just over 2,700 pounds, distributed 42-58 percent front-rear. The car’s final race weight and output from its 5.2-liter V-10 will be determined under balance of performance rules by the FIA. Cars it will go up against include GT3-spec racers from the likes of Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Porsche
