The drivers’ quartet of Gerhard Watzinger (USA), Brendon Leitch (NZ), Kerong Li (CHN) and JF Brunot (USA) will pilot the #70 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 from title sponsor CrowdStrike around the Ardennes rollercoaster at Spa-Francorchamps. The team will compete in the Pro-Am class.
Preparations for the mega-event are already in full swing. This weekend, Leipert Motorsport will start with a Lamborghini GT3 at the 12h Spa in the Creventic Series. The team from Wegberg will also take part in the “Prologue”, the official test days of the 24h Spa, in three weeks.
Managing Directors Marcel Leipert & Marc Poos:
“We are proud to be competing in the 24h Spa again this year. In addition to our involvement in the Fanatec GT World Challenge, we are competing in the Asian Le Mans Series and the European Michelin Le Mans Cup this year.
In 2022 we raced the full season in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Endurance and the platform is excellent, we feel very comfortable here.
We will use the upcoming 12h race at Spa with the 24h Series and the two official test days on 23 & 24 May to prepare the Lamborghini GT3 and the drivers in the best possible way for the biggest GT race in the world in the Ardennes.”
