Lamborghini Squadra Corse 'Young Drivers' make debut for Lamborghini Huracán GT3

Lamborghini Squadra Corse is continuing its investment in talented youngsters, bringing on two drivers from its Young Drivers Program. Patrick Kujala and Alberto Di Falco will debut the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 in the Blancpain Sprint Series. The chosen venue is Misano,the penultimate of the season, over the weekend of 3 and 4 October.

The two 19-year old drivers will campaign in the two cars lined up by Grasser Racing Team, alongside two of the Automobili Lamborghini GT3 factory drivers: Mirko Bortolotti and Jeroen Mul, both protagonists in the Blancpain Endurance Series. Dutch Jeroen Mul won the series' opening round in Monza along with Fabio Babini and Andrew Palmer, while Italian Bortolotti has two series pole positions under his belt.

Bortolotti will share the wheel with Kujala, recently crowned as the PRO Class champion of the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo. The Finnish driver, racing for Bonaldi Motorsport, won eight races out of ten this year in his first season in GT racing after a two-year stint in GP3.

Alberto Di Falco won the European Super Trofeo PRO-AM title in 2014, and also has solid experience in single-seaters. This is Di Falco's second season in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo and his second year in a row as part of the Young Drivers Program. The Italian from Rome, pairing with Mul, won Spa Race One in July with one of the Raton Racing cars.

The Blancpain Sprint Series is one of the most prestigious championships for GT cars in Europe, with Misano featuring as the chosen Italian circuit. The last round will be in Zandvoort (Holland).
