    “The Lamborghini customer teams compete in 13 different international GT3 championships, a category introduced by the FIA in 2006 and dedicated to supercars derived from road-going models. Some of the most prestigious automotive brands participate in this category. Over 40 Huracán GT3 cars currently take part in championships including the GT World Challenge Europe, whose season highlight is the 24 Hours of Spa; the IMSA SportsCar Championship, an American series comprising the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring; International GT Open in Europe; and competitive national series such as the Italian GT Championship, the British GT, the ADAC GT Masters, and DTM in Germany,” Lamborghini shared in a statement.

    It was also this year when Lamborghini made its debut at the GT World Challenge America under K-Pax Racing, a Californian racing team equipped with two Huracán GT3 EVO cars that are driven by Lamborghini Factory Drivers Andrea Caldarelli and Giovanni Venturini, partnered with Jordan Pepper and Corey Lewis, respectively.
