Boccolacci and Latorre selected by Lamborghini Squadra Corse 2020 programs – AUTOhebdo.fr

The manufacturer Lamborghini fosters its young drivers in Grand Touring. Through its Squadra Corse department, the transalpine firm has hired no less than 34 talents in two different programs in 2020: Young Driver, dedicated to competitors under 26 entered in Super Trofeo and GT3 Junior, the upper echelon.

Among the list we note the presence of two French. Dorian Boccolacci was chosen for the Young Driver program and Florian Latorre for the GT3 Junior part. The first named is racing with the Oregon team in Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe while his compatriot races in GT World Challenge Europe with FFF Racing.

The programs are supervised by former factory pilot Raffaele Giammaria and include flying lessons, media management as well as physical preparation. The five-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Emmanuele Piero, will be one of the coaches.

The two young men as well as the 32 other athletes will be invited to a selection event over three days, at the end of the season in Italy. The most impressive driver in each program will receive official support from Lamborghini Squadra Corse for 2021.
