This is our DNA

“We are one group, one family, we work as one – Iron Lynx and Iron Dames.”

Who
we are

Founded in 2017 in Cesena (Italy), Iron Lynx is a Motorsport Lab that has been built on the desire to become a professional racing team. A goal pursued through the relentless commitment of our founders and the extraordinary passion of every single member.

In just a few years, Iron Lynx has won a number of titles making it one of the most promising teams in the field.

Race to Inspire is our team philosophy. A positive attitude to face every race and everyday life. Because everything we do can be an inspiration to others; from the next generation of drivers to all people who want to achieve their dreams. From sport to music, from art to design. Everywhere.

New chapter

Lamborghini Iron Lynx marks the start of the next chapter in our story, the start of a new, exciting era where Iron Lynx and Lamborghini will officially partner to deliver the manufacturer’s LMDh racing programme in FIA World Endurance Championship and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship from 2024 onwards.

The LMDh car will run a twin-turbo V8 hybrid as Lamborghini embarks on a new technological journey in motorsport with the established and highly-successful Iron Lynx operation. The technical and engineering support for the project will come from PREMA Engineering, a new consultancy division of PREMA Group, which will utilise its 30-year championship-winning racing expertise.

A worldwide
GT3 programme

Supported by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Iron Lynx will also compete in a worldwide GT3 programme, which includes GT World Challenge Endurance Cup and IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup from 2023.
Iron Lynx will race with the #63 and #19 cars alongside the Iron Dames’ #83 car at prestigious 24 Hours of Daytona in January 2023, with the #63 and #83 cars continuing for the rest the team’s IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup campaign.

In GT World Challenge Europe, the team will run the #63, #19 and #83 cars in all six Endurance Cup rounds.

Iron Lynx and Prema,
a winning alliance

Iron Lynx and PREMA joined forces under the control of the Swiss-based company DC Racing Solutions Ltd, becoming one of the largest international groups in motorsport.

The aim of the enterprise is to build a racing platform for young talent, professional drivers and client racers, covering GT racing and single-seaters and beyond. This also benefits the Iron Dames project, an integral part of Iron Lynx, a project created to encourage more women into motorsport at all levels – from drivers, through to mechanics, engineers, and management.

Since 2022, Iron Lynx has supported PREMA Powerteam in its first foray in endurance racing, in the LMP2 category of the 2022 FIA World Endurance Championship and European Le Mans Series.
