IRON LYNX ANNOUNCES THREE-CAR ENTRY FOR 2024 24 HOURS OF DAYTONA
Iron Lynx will take on the historic 24 Hours of Daytona with a trio of Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO 2 entries across the GT Daytona Pro and GT Daytona classes, marking the beginning of the team’s second year of racing in the United States.
For 2024, Iron Lynx will once again compete in the Endurance Cup rounds of the IMSA Sportscar Championship, beginning with the series’ biggest race of the year at Daytona International Speedway – with Iron Lynx fielding the following three entries for the season-opener:
In the yellow #60, competing in GT Daytona, will be the duo of Claudio Schiavoni and Matteo Cressoni. Their two team-mates will to be announced soon.
Driving the green #19 entry in GT Daytona Pro will be factory Lamborghini drivers Mirko Bortolotti, Jordan Pepper and Andrea Caldarelli. They are joined by Franck Perera, moving over from the yellow-coloured machine to form a team with three previous winners of this event.
In the pink Iron Dames’ #83 in GT Daytona, the trio of Michelle Gatting, Sarah Bovy and Rahel Frey will be joined by a fourth driver which will be announced at a later date to form the all-female line-up.
The IMSA Endurance Cup begins on the high banks at Daytona for the blue-ribband 24-hour event on January 27-28, before heading to Sebring on March 16. There is a gap before the 6 Hours of Watkins Glen on June 23, while a new endurance race – a six-hour event at the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway – will be held on September 22 before the season-concluding Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta on October 12.
We are very excited to return to the United States, as we enjoyed racing in the IMSA Sportscar Championship very much this year. There, we found ourselves learning a completely different way of racing with a paddock that made us feel very welcome. We are really looking forward to going back to start racing in 2024 with a great race such as the 24 Hours of Daytona with our three Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO 2 cars. The team will take a short and well-deserved break over December and we will be more than ready to hit the track once again.Iron Lynx Team Principal and CEO, Andrea Piccini
