Lamborghini Joins Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona Lineup for the First Time

Lamborghini will compete at the Rolex 24 at Daytona for the first time this year.

During a press conference at the Roar Before the Rolex 24, it was revealed that five Lamborghini Huracan GTD race cars will be competing in this year’s event.

That means the field will go from zero Lamborghinis in 2015 to five, thanks to the new GTD rules that allow GT3 global specs for the class. Reigning GTD class champions and full-season teammates Bill Sweedler and Townsend Bell will co-drive the number-11 O’Gara Motorsport Lamborghini Huracan GT3, along with Richard Antinucci and Edoardo Piscopo.

Joining O’Gara on the grid will be Change Racing with Pumpelly, Justin Marks, Kaz Grala, Austin Cindric and Corey Lewis, while Paul Miller Motorsport will be the third team with drivers Bryan Sellers, Madison Snow, Bryce Miller and Mirko Bortolotti.
