Vincenzo Sospiri: I’m really happy to bring my team back to the GT Open paddock and am looking forward to working again with all the great people in Jesus Pareja’s GT Sport group. We have a strong driver line-up and valuable support from Lamborghini Squadra Corse so I’m confident we will have another great season.
Giorgio Sanna (Head of Motorsport, Lamborghini): We’re glad to be back in the GT Open this year, competing in the Pro class with VSR and some of the drivers from our GT3 Junior programme. I’m confident that our Huracán GT3 Evo cars are in the right hands to be competitive in what is always a challenging series.
Michele Beretta: I’m very happy to return to racing with Lamborghini and with Vincenzo – with whom I started in single-seaters many years ago. I would like to thank him and also Giorgio Sanna for this opportunity and for giving me the chance to aim for the title. Now we are looking forward to some testing in preparation for the start of the season!
Frederik Schandorff: It’s great to be able to confirm my 2021 programme and announce that I will again be running with VSR in the International GT Open – a series where we have both tasted victory in the past. I must thank my sponsor – PR Electronics – as well as Lamborghini Squadra Corse and PPM for their support in putting this exciting programme together.
Baptiste Moulin: I’m really excited about driving with VSR and Lamborghini in the GT Open this year. This is a great opportunity for me and we have clear goals from this programme which we have set together. I can’t wait to get started - go VSR and go Lamborghini!
