Let’s head to Australia for some new miniatures with the last edition of the 12 Hours of Bathurst which dates back to February 2020.
Honor to the local of this stage, Craig Lowndes with the Porsche 911 GT3-R wearing the # 1 (ref – AS049) and entered by Earl Bamber Motorsport. Earl Bamber and Laurens Vanthoor supported the Australian at the wheel of the German. The trio could not do better than a 9th place overall, just 2 laps behind the winners.
The NED racing team, which also drove a 911, decked out in # 12 (ref – AS054), finished 11th with Romain Dumas, David Calvert-Jones and Jaxon Evans.
Absolute Racing completed the Porsche armada with two 911 GT3-R bibs # 911 (ref – AS047) and # 912 (ref – AS048). The first cited was entrusted to Mathieu Jaminet, Matt Campbell and Patrick Pilet. The latter started from pole position and it is a 4th place that will reward the crew of this Porsche.
Dirk Werner, Matteo Cairoli and Thomas Preining shared the seat of the team’s second 911, # 912, resulting in a 7th place under the checkered flag.
Now that Lamborghinis are present in its catalog, Spark intends to multiply the versions. It is the one entered by Wall Racing in Bathurst at the beginning of last year that we present to you here. This Huracan GT3, with its iconic livery and wearing the # 6 (ref – AS057) will only manage to make 43 loops on the Australian track. Adrian Deitz, Antonio D’alberto, Julian Westwood and Cameron McConville on the Italian will therefore retire quickly.
Let’s continue with three other Lamborghinis so this Huracan GT3 from Ombra Racing (# 12) (ref – SB314) during the 2019 edition of the 24 hours of Spa. Stoneman, Gattuso, Dupont and Lewis teaming up on this car. The quartet finished 37th overall with ten laps behind the winners, pocketing in the process 7th place in the Silver category.
Head to Le Mans for the 2010 double clock with this Murcielago R-SV GT1 # 69 (ref – S9604) from the JLOC team. Atsushi Yogou, Kouji Yamanishi and Hiroyuki Liri took turns driving it. 2010 also marked the last year of presence of the fabulous and “monstrous” cars of the GT1 category at the 24 hours of Le Mans. It is also the last year to date that a Lamborghini has taken the start of the race, the Italian brand deciding not to take the step of the GTE category, replacing the two classes GT1 and GT2. For history, it is an abandonment in the early morning that will close the history of Lamborghini GT1 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This is a first for this Lamborghini since until today no other manufacturer of miniatures had been interested in this Italian.
Last presented today, the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 # 519 from “Team Japan” of the FIA Motorsports Games GT Cup which took place on the Vallelunga track at the end of 2019. This is the GT3 or rather the nation that won the meeting. This GT3 was prepared by “Orange One 1 FFF Racing Team” and represented Japan with at its wheel, the duo Hiroshi Yamaguchi and Ukyo Sasahara. (ref – S9607)
