The Lamborghini Hurricane #63 of GRT Grasser got the victory in the 3 Hours of Monza, the first event of the Blancpain Endurance Cup. The work by Christian Engelhart, Andrea Caldarelli and Mirko Bortolotti led to the signing of Sant’agata Bolognese reached the triumph in the appointment of the house, a victory that also allowed Lamborghini and GRT Grasser removed the thorn of the victory that they took in Monza in 2015 by an irregular technique. Far is that episode and in Lamborghini seem ready to turn the page with a trio of pilots who have the big goal to fight for the title in the Blancpain.
Mirko Bortolotti acknowledged in a statement to ‘Sportscar365’ to be part of an alignment formed by three factory riders puts Lamborghini in a great situation to fight for the title: “It’s amazing to get this win. It is important to have a robust performance when you compete at home, both at a personal level and for our brand. We expect a lot from this season and we have high expectations. In our car, we have three factory riders, and our main goal is to go for the title this year. We’re going to try to come up with options at the end, because the championship is the absolute priority for Lamborghini“.
Bortolotti is one of the biggest culprits of the use of this
new tyre and therefore of the success that garnered the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 in
the 3 Hours of Monza: “I Was very much involved during the tests this
winter to adapt the car. We were accustomed to the tire old
after three years with him, so it was a great change to get to be fast with a
front tire different. Once you take this decision, we obtained a
large amount of data for get a long-term equilibrium and work
on the performance and the degradación“.
Despite this technical change, Mirko Bortolotti considers
a large part of the success that is achieved the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 at all
the world is because all the teams that compete with a GT3 brand
Italian working in close collaboration with the own brand to help the
development of the car: “We have strong opponents, but we are not the only ones
we have a Lamborghini on the grill. There are several Hurricane GT3 more. at The end
we have the same amount of support from the factory than the other teams, there is
any kind of privilege on the part of Lamborghini Squadra Corse”.
