VSR to run three Lamborghinis in Fanatec GT World Sprint
VSR will be on the grid for the 2023 Fanatec GT World Sprint Championship with three new Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo 2 racing cars. The team’s Pro entry will be driven by Lamborghini Squadra Corse factory drivers Jordan Pepper and Franck Perera and will sport race number 60 in honour of Lamborghini’s 60th anniversary which is celebrated this year.
Two Silver Cup cars complete the VSR line-up. One will be driven by Rolf Ineichen and Yuki Nemoto, the 2022 Italian GT Endurance Champion recently confirmed as a Lamborghini Young Professional Driver. The other will see Baptiste Moulin, 2022 Italian GT Endurance Pro-Am Champion, pair up once more with Marcus Paverud.
VSR had their first taste of Fanatec GT World racing last season when it ran two cars in the Endurance Silver Cup. In the same year the team took a clean sweep in the Italian GT Endurance winning the Overall, Pro-Am and Team titles. That success followed overall victory in the 2021 International GT Open and in the 2020 Italian GT Sprint.
The Forlì based team will also run cars this year in the Italian GT Sprint and the European Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championships as well as taking part in the Crowdstrike 24 Hours of Spa. The team’s GT3 programmes will be run in collaboration with Change Racing. Drivers for the Italian GT Sprint and the European Lamborghini Super Trofeo championships will be announced shortly.
Vincenzo Sospiri: I really want to thank Giorgio Sanna and the Lamborghini Squadra Corse family for allowing us to take the next step in our long and fruitful relationship. We are all thrilled to have Jordan, Franck and Rolf with us this year and very happy to welcome back our drivers Yuki, Baptiste and Marcus. Fanatec GT World is the most competitive GT Championship there is and I’m very proud to have my cars on the grid with the support of Lamborghini Squadra Corse.
Giorgio Sanna: In Lamborghini Squadra Corse we are very excited to race again in the GTWC sprint series with our representative team VSR that, in the last few years, has contributed in the growth of our best GT3 junior drivers. We are glad to support the team with Franck and Jordan who will race with the number 60 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of our company in 2023!
