The Barcelona-born driver of Kurdish ancestry will continue to race at the highest European level as he has just confirmed participation in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo driving a Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 of Leipert Motorsport. Tutumlu will team up with Finland´s Jesse Anttila.
Isaac Tutumlu has reached an agreement with Leipert Motorsport to become a driver for the remaining five events of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo partnering with Scandinavian Jesse Anttila. Tutumlu, who is making a name for himself in the endurance and GT world over the last few seasons, was chosen by Leipert Motorsport to drive one of their Lamborghini Huracán.
In fact, the German outfit already knows full well Tutumlu´s driving skills as he joined the team in the Gulf 12 hours in Abu Dhabi and the 24 hours of Dubai, where they came second in class last year. After the Lamborghini Super Trofeo season starting at Monza, with Tutumlu unable to attend the event, five other rounds will take place at famous venues such as Silverstone (22-24 May), Paul Ricard (19-21 June), Spa-Francorchamps (22-26 July), Nürburgring (18-20 September) and Sebring (19-20 November). The classic American track will host the World Finals of the brand located in Sant´Agata Bolognese and Tutumlu will also take part at this international event.
“It is fantastic to confirm this racing program for 2015, after some difficult months when we were forced to cease Barzani Racing Team activities but I hope to be back with them in the near future. First of all, I would like to thank Leipert Motorsport and Lamborghini for giving me the opportunity to race in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo. They have made an incredible effort. Of course, I have to mention my sponsors Palo Wood and Bonasport and two new additions like Brandenwurst and Zitro Creative Agency”, Tutumlu explains obviously happy as “this racing car, the Huracán, is quicker than GT3 vehicles and even DTM is not much faster. It is an amazing car and there are drivers pretty experienced such as Daniel Zampieri, Patric Niederhauser, Edoardo Liberati, Sergio Campana, Patrick Kujala,… I am looking forward to driving the Lamborghini and fight with them. Besides my teammate Jesse is a young gun and in my opinion we will be a very competitive pair”.
