VSR raced successfully in Asia before the Covid-19 pandemic, winning the Am Championship in 2017 and finishing 3rd in Pro-Am in 2019. In the intervening years the Italian based team has picked up the International GT Open and Italian GT Sprint and Endurance Championships.

I am sure he and Edoardo will make a competitive pairing and look forward to announcing a strong line-up for the sister car shortly.

I am confident that their successful track record, combined with the exciting driver pairing of Bian and Edoardo will bring a competitive package to the Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia.
Giorgio Sanna (Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Head of Motorsport): We are very motivated about our return to the Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia after a few years absence. Asia Pacific is an important market for us and combining the experience of VSR with Bian and Edoardo we expect a competitive season.
