Next year, the Lamborghini Huracan is set to make its racing debut in both the Super Trofeo and GT3 racing series. Now it has emerged that the Italian supercar manufacturer could be sighting a return to Le Mans but now in the class-leading LMP1 category.
As a matter of fact, while recently speaking with Top Gear, Lamborghini’s motorsport coordinator and lead development driver Giorgio Sanna said, “I not only want to participate in Le Mans, I want to win. Our racing program and budget currently extends to 2018. F1 is completely out of our mind because VW is not interested.
“But endurance racing is a very good program, and we have to look at LMP1. But we have to grow step by step,” he said.
As it stands, Porsche, Audi and Toyota are the factory led LMP1 entrants and adding Lamborghini into the mix would mean a third brand from the Volkswagen Group. With that being said however, there is speculation Audi could leave LMP1 and move to Formula One therefore opening the door to a potential Lamborghini entrant.
