Grasser will again field three Lamborghinis

Works drivers and other well-known names will make up crews competing in the ADAC GT Masters

ORANGE1 by GRT Grasser will field three Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVOs in the Super Sports Car League. The Austrians intend to fight for victory again.

Grasser will field a team made up of Lamborghini works regulars and other experienced top class drivers this season. Works drivers Mirko Bortolotti, Marco Mapelli and Franck Perera will compete for the Austrians as they did last year. Christian Engelhart and Rolf Ineichen are also back in the line-up. The team have still to decide exactly how their drivers will be paired and allocated to cars.

Now in his second year in the ADAC GT Masters, Michele Beretta, a young talent from Lamborghini's Junior Programme, is the latest member to join the outfit. Team GRT Grasser Racing and Lamborghini were so impressed with his achievements in Team Rosberg's Huracán GT3 in 2018 that they decided to give him their support. He will share the car with Mapelli.

"I'm pleased to see that our programme for 2019 is now taking shape," said Team Principal, Gottfried Grasser. "With Lamborghini's help, we are able to field works cars with top-class drivers at the wheel in every series, so I'm looking forward to the upcoming season. Despite achieving a mega success with victory in the 24 Hours of Daytona, we embarked on a rigorous programme of testing with the new GT3 EVO in early February. I'm really looking forward to the season with the new car which has already shown enormous potential in the first tests. We're very proud of this amazing car that Lamborghini has produced for us. Many thanks to our sponsors, Orange1 and Bio-Circle, as well as to the entire Lamborghini team, who will give us their full support again in 2019. I think that with our extremely successful drivers and loyal partners, we can build on the great season that we had last year and achieve our ambitious goals in 2019."

Team GRT Grasser Racing lined up in the ADAC GT Masters for the first time in 2015 and have achieved a great deal of success during the past four years with six pole positions and seven wins, two of which they secured last year, 2018.
