Barcelona, Spain – Monday, 10.09.2018
After this race weekend, Leipert Motorsport can announce another well-deserved victory on its success account. Not only the well-established team and the clockwork running Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo worked perfectly - the driver quartet also harmonized. To the regular GT4 driver of the team, Marcus Paverud (18, Norway), joined Harald Schlotter (54, Germany) and Morgan Haber (24, Australia), both of whom had already successfully competed for the team. The newest member, Anthony Lambert (23, Belgium), was also warmly welcomed. He was quickly integrated into the team and was able to continue the lap times of his colleagues.
First milestone: Pole position for the long race
In qualifying, the German team supported by MOTUL set the first benchmark: The lap time of 1:48.631 minutes had to be beaten by the rivals. But none of the competitors could keep this time. The pole position of the SPX class was safe and the race could take its course.
Leipert Motorsport - a well-established team took the class victory
At noon on Saturday the starters of the 24-hour race were told: "Gentlemen, start the engines" - the games began! Starting driver Morgan Haber skilfully hold the pole position and kept his opponents in check. Also during the driver change in the race the experienced team of Leipert Motorsport showed its professional side: fast tyre changes and fast refuelling. The Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo proved once again that it is made for the long distance as well as for the sprint races. The newly assembled driver quartet was able to work together very well and the lap times of all four drivers were nearly identical.
Despite some changes in the lead at the front of the SPX class due to Code 60 phases or pit stops, Team Leipert Motorsport was able to take the victory with good tactics, fastest laps and an experienced team. In the overall standings, the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo #10 crossed the finish line on P8 - the excellent top 10 position was another highlight of the race weekend. The four Leipert Motorsport drivers happily took the trophy in front of the cheering team.
On Wednesday the team of Ingo and Marcel Leipert will already start to the next race event - to their home track, the Nürburgring.
Leipert Motorsport will start with three Lamborghini in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe and with an AMG GT4 in the GT4 Europe Series.
