Golden times for Grasser Racing's home race in the DTM. The Austrian Lamborghini Team will be lining up for the seventh round of the prestigious championship in their native Styria from 22 to 24 September and is not only looking forward to the home advantage. For the race weekend at the Red Bull Ring, GRT have established a cooperation with the international gold trader GGMT Revolution. The #19 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 will be sporting the colors of GGMT Revolution as part of the partnership, with Lamborghini factory driver Andrea Caldarelli getting behind the wheel. The Italian will make his DTM debut as teammate to Clemens Schmid.
For GRT, the races on the doorstep are always a highlight. The Red Bull Ring, which is only ten minutes away from the headquarters in St. Margarethen, has a special place in the team's history, and not only because of that homecoming feeling. The Grand Prix circuit, world-famous from Formula 1, has also been a place for success for Team Principal Gottfried Grasser's squad right from the start. When the outfit sent the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO into competition for the first time in 2015, it won the ADAC GT Masters at the Red Bull Ring straight away.
A year ago, GRT did well at their home race in their debut season in the DTM. Lamborghini factory driver Mirko Bortolotti claimed a podium and the fastest lap on the iconic 4.31 km long circuit in Spielberg. This year, the Grasser Racing crew celebrated their greatest success in the DTM to date with Maximilian Paul's victory at the Nürburgring. Together with GGMT Revolution, GRT are looking to pick up on bright times in the DTM next weekend.
With Andrea Caldarelli, the Lamborghini Squadra Corse supported team has a top-class driver from the Italian sports car manufacturer's line-up at its disposal. The 33-year-old will compete for the first time in the DTM at the Red Bull Ring in the #19 GGMT Revolution Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2. Expectations are high for a good reason, as GRT and Caldarelli can look back on a successful history together. In the 2017 season, the Italian was part of the crew that celebrated the overall victory in the Blancpain GT Series with GRT.
This weekend, fans can already sneak a peek at the GGMT Revolution Lamborghini with which Caldarelli will go on the attack in the DTM. The GT3 machine will be on display at the Shopping City Seiersberg in Graz from 15 to 18 September as part of a DTM presentation for the event at the Red Bull Ring. On Thursday, 21 September, Gottfried Grasser and Clemens Schmid will take part in the official DTM press conference for the seventh race weekend at the Red Bull Ring, which will be held in the Media Centre at the circuit from 11:30 am. As always, the DTM races will be broadcast live in over 150 regions worldwide on 23 and 24 September.
Andrea Caldarelli: "I am really looking forward to join GRT for their home race at the Red Bull Ring. The level in the DTM is really high and I know it won't be easy to join for a race at the end of the season. But I'm very confident and, together with GRT, I will give everything to bring the #19 Lamborghini to the front. It's great to be working with the team again for the first time since 2018. I remember we had a fantastic race at the Red Bull Ring back then. It was probably one of the best races I've ever had. Those are great memories and I can't wait to tackle a new challenge in the DTM next weekend together with GRT."
Gottfried Grasser, Team Principal of GRT: "We are very happy about the cooperation with GGMT Revolution for the DTM races at the Red Bull Ring. Our home race has ever since been a special highlight for us and, as always, we are highly motivated to go full throttle with a new partner at our side. The Lamborghini in the GGMT Revolution design is certainly an absolute eye-catcher and those who scan the QR code on the car will be even more excited. With Andrea Caldarelli, we have a superb line-up for the number 19 car. We have known each other for many years and know about his outstanding qualities. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Lamborghini Squadra Corse for their support in this project. I am sure it will be a really golden weekend for us."
Helmut Kaltenegger, CEO and Founder of GGMT Revolution: "On the one hand, it is a great honour for us to be a partner at GRT's home race, and on the other hand, we are pleased to have the opportunity to make all those interested in the DTM curious about our concept, buying gold with discounts."
