F2 frontrunner and sometime Team LNT Ginetta LMP1 pilot Luca Ghiotto will switch to GT3 in 2020 with a full season deal with R-Motorsport aboard one of their Aston Martin Vantage GT3s in the GT World Challenge Europe.
After a Formula 2 record of success showing five victories and 21 podium finishes until the end of the 2019 championship, third in the driver standings in the 2019 Championship with a single race to go he also gained his first experience in long distance racing when he started in a Ginetta LMP1 prototype in the Fuji World Endurance Championship round after impressing in pre-season testing.
Luca Ghiotto: “R-Motorsport is one of the absolute top teams in international GT sport. My comprehensive race program in two GT3 top racing series will be a real challenge for me. The change from single seater racing into a professional GT3 team like R-Motorsport is an important career step for me and offers a new perspective for my future in the sport. I am looking forward to working together with the team and can’t wait to start into my first GT3 long distance race in 2020.”
Dr. Florian Kamelger: “We warmly welcome Luca at R-Motorsport. He is obviously a driver with a great future in international automobile racing and has already proved his talent with victories and top results on various final championship tables. He is a highly valued addition to our team and it will be certainly exciting working with him in future.”
