I want to thank Lamborghini and the Head of Motorsport Giorgio Sanna for this extraorinary opportunity the gave me: joining the GT3 Junior Program and racing under the Lamborghini banner in a championship second in Europe only to the Blancpain GT Series is fantastic. The Huracán GT3, at his first season in 2015, showed its potential. Besides, Antonelli Motorsport is a winning team. I am very happy to have extended my commitment with it. Together we will aim to another successful season – commented Agostini.
