Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Monday 19th February 2018: Just two weekends after making a successful start to the 2018 Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East Championship, Leipert Motorsport travelled the short distance up to Dubai for the third and fourth rounds of the championship around the Dubai Autodrome. However, joining the team for the weekend alongside John-Louis Jasper (DE) would be 20-year-old Bulgarian, Pavel Lefterov. Having finished runner up in the 2015 GT4 European Series AM Class and winning the 2016 Deutscher Tourenwagen Cup 2.0 Production Class, the team were confident they had yet another strong driver pairing going into the weekend.
