Orange1 FFF Racing Team adds another programme to its 2021 season calendar. Following the announcement of the participation in the Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli, the Chinese team that took the title in a triumphant 2019 campaign, has confirmed its entry in the Endurance Cup of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS. Expectations are high and are built on the great competitiveness shown in the second part of the 2020 season, when the team lead for most of the race at the Total 24 Hours of Spa and finished on the podium at the Paul Ricard 1000 Kms. In 2019, the title was conquered thanks to three podium finishes and victory in the final 3-hour round at Barcelona. At the wheel of the #63 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO has been confirmed a top-class driver line-up, with Andrea Caldarelli, Marco Mapelli and Mirko Bortolotti, all Lamborghini factory drivers. The bid for the 2021 title will kick off mid-April at Monza, which will be followed by the Circuit Paul Ricard 1000 Kms end of May, the 24 Hours of Spa end of July, the Nürburgring in September and the closing round, the Barcelona 3 Hours in October.

We definitely trust to be among the front-runners that will fight for the title.”

GT World Challenge Europe is one of the most competitive and prestigious championships worldwide and I’m sure that Orange1 FFF Racing will continue to shine for our brand”
Armando Donazzan, Presidente Orange1 Holding
“Orange1 is proud to be alongside FFF Racing Team and Lamborghini Squadra Corse in a very competitive and prestigious scenery. To sport our brand in some of the historic places of motorsports is very rewarding, but I am sure that also the results will be a reason to cheer during the season.
