After the legendary victory in the GTD category (Gran Turismo Daytona) 2018, Orange1 Team GRT is ready to kick off the 2019 Season in the most iconic race event in America: the 57th edition of the famous endurance race at the Daytona International Speedway.

After 1 year of partnership with Grasser Racing Team, Orange1 Racing will attend for the second time the most famous event in Daytona, ready to kick off this 2019 with a line up of drivers who will be officially released shortly, supported by an incredible and determinated crew with one goal, win!

With the newest member of Lamborghini Squadra Corse: The Huracán GT3 EVO which will make its track debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Based on a hybrid body shell, made of aluminum and reinforced with carbon fiber. The new aerodynamic solutions have increased the aerodynamic load to further improve stability and reduce pitch sensitivity. Noteworthy in the electronics is the introduction of the EHPS, Electro Hydraulic Power Steering and the ABS is new as well. The beating heart of the GT3 EVO is the 5.2 liter aspirated V10 and the dry weight 1230 kg.

Armando Donazzan: “ I am very happy and proud to attend Daytona and I thank Gottfried Grasser and everybody at Grasser Racing Team, Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Giorgio Sanna (head of Motorsport) and Maurizio Reggiani (technical director) for having given us this incredible opportunity for the second year. I’m so proud also because we will use the same livery of the championship of the last season as a main partner, the orange color and the green of GRT, that represents the union of the two teams. I still have in my mind and in my heart the epic victory in the 2018 edition; it was an extraordinary result, the crew and the drivers did a fantastic job, it was so special and meaningful experience! Can’t wait for the 2019 event!”
