    Grosjean will also join fellow Lamborghini factory drivers Andrea Caldarelli and Mirko Bortolotti as a test driver for Lamborghini Iron Lynx’s Le Mans Daytona h (LMDh) car. Lamborghini will field the race car in the FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship in 2024.

    “First of all, it’s an honor to be joining Lamborghini, it’s such an iconic brand for everyone who loves cars, including myself and my kids. On top of that, I am very excited about two things: the first is starting in Daytona with the GT3 which has been very successful in Daytona, and a really good team like Iron Lynx and team-mates around me, so that is going to be a nice discovery for myself. And then, later in the year developing the new LMDh which is a beautiful car — I’m lucky to have seen it — and an incredible project in endurance. It’s becoming a very exciting category with all the constructors coming. With Lamborghini being such a successful brand, I hope we can do well in the future,” commented Grosjean.
