Michele will soon be back on track in the GT Open Championship at the wheel of the VSR team’s Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 EVO.




Michele’s commitments don’t end there, but they will be enriched with another part racing programme, a fascinating challenge which Michele will reveal very soon...



After a racing season full of achievements, in which the European Le Mans Series GTE and victory in the Silver Cup at the 24 Hours Total of Spa-Francorchamps both stand out, Michele is back racing with the car in which he made is GT race debut, the Lamborghini.



The programme will see Michele busy in the six rounds of the International GT Open Series alongside the Danish driver Frederik Schandoff and supported by Vincenzo Sospiri Racing.



After a year of positive experiences at the wheel of extremely different GT cars, such as Porsche 911 GT3 and Mercedes AMG GT, Michele is again at the wheel of the Huracàn.




Michele is enthusiastic as he talks about his return with Lamborghini;



“My return at the wheel of Lamborghini was initiated by Giorgio Sanna (Lamborghini Motorsport Manager), with whom I have always kept in touch and which, after the excellent 2020, has aided my return to Lamborghini. This has resulted an interesting programme that will see me in Vincenzo’s car (Sospiri) to aiming for GT Open honours.”



Michele, you return to an environment that you only left in 2019 and that you know well.


“I saw many familiar faces and an environment in which I always felt good. In addition to Giorgio (Sanna), that I have already mentioned, I met another friend in Vincenzo Sospiri, with whose team I have already raced in single-seaters.


Vincenzo is an efficient manager and a fantastic tutor since he was also a world class driver, he has a great desire to win. I would say that it’s a pleasure to go back to Lamborghini.”
 
 


After many great victories last year, culminating in the ELMS title and the win at Spa, what do you expect from this season?



“The 2021 racing season will be very important for me because I want to further build on the results I obtained in 2020 and lay the foundations for 2022, I want to improve to present myself in the best way next year. The GT races will be real sprint races of just one hour, with a driver change and a refuelling.



For this reason, the experience that I had last year, when I raced with Porsche, Mercedes and Audi, in different championships and teams, in different racing conditions, will come in handy. I want to make the most of what I have learned to aim at the top again.”
