Lamborghini factory driver Andrea Caldarelli has been confirmed at Grasser Racing Team for the remainder of the DTM season, with his debut commencing at the Red Bull Ring on 22-24 September.
The 33-year-old Lamborghini Squadra Corse driver is set for his DTM debut next week with GRT, competing in the #19 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO2 in both the penultimate and final races of 2023.
Located in the Spielberg region of Austria, the Red Bull Ring is regarded by GRT as their home circuit as it is situated just 10 minutes away from their headquarters.
Caldarelli said: “I am really looking forward to join GRT for their home race at the Red Bull Ring.
“The level in the DTM is really high and I know it won’t be easy to join for a race at the end of the season.
“But I’m very confident and, together with GRT, I will give everything to bring the #19 Lamborghini to the front.
“It’s great to be working with the team again for the first time since 2018. I remember we had a fantastic race at the Red Bull Ring back then.
“It was probably one of the best races I’ve ever had.
“Those are great memories and I can’t wait to tackle a new challenge in the DTM next weekend together with GRT.”
The remaining rounds on the 2023 schedule will take place at two venues: Red Bull Ring and Hockenheimring.
Lamborghini’s Huracan GT3 EVO2 package has proven to be successful in the hands of championship-leader, and three-time race winner this season, Mirko Bortolotti, who is a fellow Lamborghini works driver.
Gottfried Grasser, Team Principal of GRT, added: “We are very happy about the cooperation with GGMT Revolution for the DTM races at the Red Bull Ring.
“Our home race has ever since been a special highlight for us and, as always, we are highly motivated to go full throttle with a new partner at our side.
“The Lamborghini in the GGMT Revolution design is certainly an absolute eye-catcher and those who scan the QR code on the car will be even more excited.
“With Andrea Caldarelli, we have a superb line-up for the number 19 car. We have known each other for many years and know about his outstanding qualities.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Lamborghini Squadra Corse for their support in this project. I am sure it will be a really golden weekend for us.”
The penultimate round of the 2023 DTM season will take place at the Red Bull Ring next week on 22-24 September.
