Words from the Team

Iron Lynx CEO, Andrea Piccini, said: “Coming from two positive tests in Daytona and COTA, where the car proved competitive and consistent, it’s amazing to announce a lineup made of so many talented drivers. We cannot wait to welcome Matteo and Edoardo to the team as Lamborghini Squadra Corse Factory Drivers, and we are sure they will be an instant fit within our operation. They are fast, experienced and professional, and these are consistent features across the whole driver roster, so we couldn’t be happier with how it shaped up. We have a lot of work still to do to be ready, but we are looking forward to the final preparations and to the start of the season.”

Andrea Caldarelli said: “I am delighted to be racing in IMSA next year with our new Lamborghini SC63 GTP race car. IMSA has always been my favourite championship to race in, also in my past GT experiences and I am very grateful for this opportunity given by Lamborghini to return to the series. I look forward to competing with Lamborghini Iron Lynx. I know they have been working very hard on this project, and I am certain that it will be a very tough but successful year.”

Edoardo Mortara said: “I am super happy to be joining Lamborghini Squadra Corse, which is allowing me this incredible opportunity to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Endurance Championship, both of which I have wanted to take part in for a long time. It is a very proud moment for me, and I hope we can achieve some good results next season.”
