Emil Frey Racing today announced the beginning of a new cooperation with Lamborghini.
The Swiss team, possibly best known for their Jaguar GT3 racing program which was retired at the end of last year’s Blancpain GT Series ay Barcelona, will run the Huracán GT3 Evo in a number of European competitions.
“Just ahead of the expiry of the homologation for our own developed Emil Frey GT3 Jaguar, we concluded the project by winning the Silver Cup in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup last season”, said Lorenz Frey-Hilti, Team Principal Emil Frey Racing.
“We are pleased to start a new project with Lamborghini Squadra Corse, a renowned sport car brand within Motorsport. Both parties are offered the perfect platform to use synergies and realise set targets”.
“We are glad and very excited to have Emil Frey Racing as a new team, joining us for 2019” said Giorgio Sanna, Head of Motorsport Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. “The team has a great on-track experience, but they also have an off-track approach that is very unique.
“We look forward to working closer together and welcoming them to the family to achieve important results in the next future.”
The team’s press release did not state whether their Lexus programme, run in parallel to their Jaguar effort for the past two seasons, will continue. Further information about the upcoming racing season is promised “shortly”.
