LAMBORGHINI SQUADRA CORSE BACK ON TRACK IN VALLELUNGA WITH THE YOUNG DRIVERS AND GT3 JUNIOR PROGRAMS

Lamborghini Squadra Corse is back on track in Vallelunga (Rome) for a two-day test session reserved for the drivers who are part of the Young Drivers and GT3 Junior Programs.Lamborghini YDP & GT3 Junior Program_02

The test session continues Lamborghini’s investment into young talent, and comes just a few days after the successful debut of Patrick Kujala and Alberto Di Folco (both aged 19) in the Misano Blancpain Sprint Series, where Kujala along with Mirko Bortolotti seized P3 in the Main Race.

This year’s Super Trofeo witnessed more youngsters joining the season with the average age of contenders dramatically reducing. The three Lamborghini Squadra Corse junior programs’ goal, including the Formula Junior Program, is to select the most talented drivers and bring them all the way through the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series, and later to GT3 racing.

Among the drivers involved in the Vallelunga two-day test session was 25-year old Italian Daniel Zampieri. With both the 2009 Italian F3 and International GT Open titles under his belt, Zampieri raced this year in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo along with the Russian Roman Mavlanov (Antonelli Motorsport), scoring his best result in Paul Ricard when he won Race Two. Because of his skills and performance he has been selected for the GT3 Junior Program.

Said Zampieri: “I’m impressed by the overall package. The Huracán GT3 reminds me of formula racing, where every minor adjustment is effective. The braking and the ABS management are phenomenal. Braking is very consistent through the whole stint while the ABS is never very invasive. It’s definitely a great car. I would like to thank Lamborghini Squadra Corse for letting me test this amazing car.”

Also part of the GT3 Junior Program, Florian Spengler lapped Vallelunga alongside Kei Cozzolino, Andrea Amici and Corey Lewis.

“Today was definitely better than the first time I drove here. I’m not the biggest fan of Vallelunga but still managed to soon be at ease with the car. The car is easy to drive and every change made to the set-up gives you a feedback. I’m looking forward to test it once more, maybe on a track that I know better. All the engineers and mechanics are very professional and I would like to thank Squadra Corse for this opportunity,” stated Spengler.

Participating in the Young Drivers Program in Vallelunga were Shinya Michimi, Edoardo Liberati, Alberto Di Folco, Loris Spinelli, Oliver Rae and Jake Rattenbury. All of them had the chance to lap in the Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, as part of the development process as well as to improve their skills. All their activities were supervised by the official GT3 driver Fabio Babini, and by the Lamborghini Squadra Corse engineers.
