Grasser Racing set to join 2022 grid with four Lamborghinis

Grasser Racing have announced their intentions to run four Lamborghini Huracan GT3s on the DTM grid for their 2022 campaign.

The Austrian-based outfit will receive substantial factory support from the Lamborghini Squadra Corse team, entering four Huracan GT3 EVOs in 2022.

Speaking on the announcement, Grasser Racing team principal, Gottfried Grasser, said the Balance of Performance and introduction of GT3 cars to DTM was the selling point for joining the grid.

“DTM is something really big in motorsport, something I have been following intensely myself for over 20 years,” he said in a press release.

“The entire package is making DTM the premier class in GT3 racing. The media figures are impressive and we have seen in 2021 that innovative solutions such as the BoP, Balance of Performance, are working well in DTM.

“It is all very professional.”

GRT have a record of success in other motorsports series already, winning in the GTD class at the 2018 and 2019 24 Hours of Daytona, and the 2019 12 Hours of Sebring.

With this impressive experience already in GT racing, Grasser said his intentions are to be right at the front from the first race next year with full commitment to DTM.

“From now on, our full focus is on DTM, we will be ending all our other involvements,” he said.

“One can only do DTM with utmost concentration. Our goal is to be well up front in the first year already and deliver a professional package.

“The gaps are unbelievably small, everything has to be spot-on.”

Another team adding their services to the DTM grid shows the success the introduction of GT3 cars in 2021 is having.

Frederic Elsner, director of events and operations for DTM organisation ITR, said having Grasser Racing on the grid will be a huge addition.

“For DTM, this is a huge gain and it underlines the appreciation of the race series that Grasser Racing has entered four Lamborghinis with official support from Lamborghini Squadra Corse for the 2022 DTM,” he said.

“Gottfried Grasser’s team has an impressive track record and Lamborghini is a fascinating sports car brand that has already impressed the fans last season.

“We are all the more eager to find out about the quartet of drivers with whom Grasser Racing will be fighting in DTM.”
