Three car attack for VSR
VSR will enter three Huracáns in this year’s European Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championship and field an international line-up of drivers from four different countries. Experienced Brazilian stock-car driver Raphael Abbate will team up with Japan’s Yuki Nemoto in the PRO category. Nemoto made his GT debut with VSR halfway through last season, claiming four wins in six races alongside eventual Super GT Champion Nicolas Costa. In the PRO-AM category China’s JiaTong Liang steps up from the Italian Championship and will pair with German debutant Christopher Dreyspring. VSR will also be represented in the Am category and the drivers will be announced shortly.
“To be able to confirm three cars, one in each category, for the European Championship is very satisfying as it is the result of a lot of hard work and development over the past two seasons. We have a really nice blend of experience and youth in the team and I’m confident that all three cars will be competitive in their respective categories.” – Vincenzo Sospiri said.
“I’m very proud to be representing VSR this year, the team is very competitive with a big will to win. – commented Abbate – I want to thank Vincenzo for his confidence in me as a driver and the whole team for helping me settle in. This is a new experience for me, my first experience of European racing and my first time driving a GT car. We’re all working very hard and our aim is to be at the front.”
The European Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championship starts at Monza on 21-23 April.
