The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo was driven by Leitch/Cooke/Tutumlu‐Lopez in the GTWC 6h race. The trio impressed with fast lap times in the race. A longer repair stop prevented a better placing than 11th in the Silver Class. In the LST, all five Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo delivered exciting fights in both races and crossed the finish line without exception in the top 10 of their classes ‐ including class wins and podium finishes.
Fast lap times in the GWTC ‐ front‐end damage prevented top result
For their second round in the GWTC, the MOTUL‐supported Leipert Motorsport team fielded the
Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo with Brendon Leitch (NZ), Tyler Cooke (USA) and Isaac Tutumlu‐Lopez (ESP). The trio made a positive impression in free practice with the Lamborghini #27. In qualifying, however, Tutumlu got flat sports on his tyres during a spin, so that he was unable to set a good time. Since the starting position is determined by the average of all lap times of the three drivers, the Leipert trio was on the grid in P16 of the Silver Cup, P51 overall.
In the 6h race, however, things moved forward quickly. Starting driver Tutumlu pushed the
Lamborghini up to 31st place in his two stints. Cooke, who then took over, did not have luck on his
side. A piece of debris lying on the track damaged the front of the Lamborghini. A 20‐minute repair
break was the consequence. But the Leipert team did not give up. With good, constant lap times ‐
especially final driver Leitch was the fastest driver on the track at times ‐ the #27 Lamborghini fought its way back to 37th place. Rank 11 in the Silver Cup standings.
Managing Directors Marcel Leipert & Marc Poos:
“We are satisfied in the FANATEC GTWC Endurance. The three drivers harmonised well in terms of lap times. In the race, the team and drivers demonstrated their quality. It was bad luck that we had front‐end damage and had to replace the radiator, but these things happen. Praise to our mechanics who worked quickly and precisely. At the next race at Spa‐Francorchamps at the end of July, we’ll be back in action. “
