While Leipert Motorsport has made a name for itself in GT4 and the Super Trofeo in recent years, there is now exciting news: After a few years of abstinence, Leipert Motorsport is returning to GT3 racing. The team's focus is on young up-and-coming drivers who are moving up from the Lamborghini Junior Programme and other categories looking for their way into GT3 racing. With the professional support of the team and Lamborghini Squadra Corse, young drivers are given the opportunity to gain a foothold in the GT3 environment. Therefore entries at selected events of the 24 Series are scheduled, among others the 12h Hockenheim, 24h Portimao and 24h Sebring. The drivers, who are currently confirmed, are Brendon Leitch from New Zealand, the American Tyler Cooke, the Germans Sebastian Balthasar and Fidel Leib. Guest starts in the GT World Challenge or Intercontinental GT Challenge are also not ruled out.
Quote of Giorgio Sanna, Head of Lamborghini Squadra Corse:
“After many years of successful collaboration with Leipert Motorsport, working together to support the career of many young drivers in our Super Trofeo series in Europe and Asia, we are glad to start a new challenge in the GT3 program, involving well noted drives coming from our young drivers’ program on the Huracan GT3 EVO.”
Quote of Ingo & Marcel Leipert, Heads of Leipert Motorsport:
“We are proud to have put together such a strong program for the 2021 season. With the return to the ADAC GT4 and the very good line-up in the Super Trofeo Europe, the sporting base for a successful season should be in place. We are very glad to be able to run a GT3 program again. The fact that we will have a strong line-up with young GT3 newcomers is a good signal that the development of youngsters from Lamborghini and us is bearing fruit. We are happy about the close and trusting partnership with Lamborghini and are planning further long-distance and sprint assignments beyond the races mentioned.”
With the three components ADAC GT4 Germany, Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe and the new junior support programme in the GT3 segment, Leipert Motorsport is facing an exciting challenge. The first race is already just around the corner: this week, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo starts the new season in Monza, Italy (16-19 April).
