There are currently two Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evos from Imperiale Racing ready to depart for Monza before this weekend’s opening Sprint series round of the Italian GT Championship.

Alex Frassineti and Luca Ghiotto are set to be behind the wheel of the team’s first car while Riccardo Cazzaniga and Guatemalan Mateo Llarena in the second.

For Frassineti, the 2017 Italian GT champion, this will be his third year with the team, while teammate Ghiotto prepares to make his GT debut after spending several years competing in high-level open-wheel championships including GP3, GP2 and Formula 2.

Cazzaniga, 2017 GT Cup runner-up, meanwhile, will start the season in the #19 Huracán teaming up with 17-year-old Llarena who makes his European race debut after racing in Guatemala’s national championship and USA’s FARA Hankook 500.

Teammanager Luca Del Grosso is sure of a good racing season. He states: “Returning to the Sprint series of the 2021 Italian GT Championship with two Lamborghinis will be a great challenge for all of us.

“This challenge is a new chapter in the team’s history which validates our tradition in this series with a high profile program. We show up at the start of this season with a respectable line-up and are sure that everyone, engineers and mechanics, will work together with the drivers in order to immediately fight the title.

“As always before a season gets going, there is a lot of determination but also a bit of uncertainty as we do not know the level of preparation of our opponents and therefore the first sessions on the track will be of high importance. However, this is part of the game and the charm of the first round.

“We are really proud to be able to continue our relationship with Alex and we welcome Luca, Riccardo and Mateo to the team.”

In March the team announced Andrea Amici, Alberto Di Folco, and Stuart Middleton will contest the Endurance championship.

The 2021 Italian GT season is set to kick off at Monza with its Sprint series rounds from 30 April-2 May, while the Endurance season will start at Circuit Enna-Pergusa from 21-23 May.
