Lamborghini celebrates third victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona with sensational one-two finish

Sant’Agata Bolognese/Daytona, January 26th, 2020 – Lamborghini kicked off its 2020 racing season by making yet more history at the traditional curtain raising 24 Hours of Daytona. Winning the GTD class with the #48 Paul Miller Racing partnership of Andrea Caldarelli, Corey Lewis, Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow, this is the third consecutive year Lamborghini has taken victory at Daytona.

The quartet in the #48 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo kept their noses clean throughout the epic endurance race to finish 21.908 seconds ahead of another Lamborghini, the Magnus Racing by GRT’s Marco Mapelli, John Potter, Spencer Pumpelly and Andy Lally to secure an historic one-two.

Stefano Domenicali, CEO and Chairman of Automobili Lamborghini stated: In 2019 we wrote an important page of motorsport history, winning a legendary race for the second time, fighting with the most prestigious car makers. This triumph in 2020 demonstrates how Lamborghini is always looking ahead and constantly working to always achieve higher and more important targets. My congratulations to both teams and all the drivers, they have done an amazing job

Second for the #44 was a remarkable turn in fortunes, after mechanical issues prevented the Magnus Racing team to set a time in Thursday’s qualifying, leaving them 17th and last on the grid for the race.

It was in stark contrast to the two-time defending champions Grasser; the #11 was the quickest of the five Huracáns with fifth on the grid in the hands of Steijn Schothorst, Richard Heistand and Factory Lamborghini drivers Franck Perera and Albert Costa.
