The Spanish racer of Kurdish roots will join Leipert Motorsport, his team in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, for the Iberian Peninsula´s most famous endurance race at the wheel of a Lamborghini Huracan. Leipert Motorsport shall be a factory-backed team in Barcelona.
Isaac Tutumlu has confirmed participation at the 24 hours of Barcelona, taking place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on 4-5-6 September. The pilot born in Barcelona will drive a Lamborghini Huracan, the same model he is driving in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, entered by Leipert Motorsport, genuine experts with Sant´Agata Bolognese-built cars. Ingo Leipert´s team added Tutumlu to driver line-up as he is a seasoned endurance driver. Besides, it will be a factory-backed program.
“It is nice to contest the 24 hours of Barcelona. In fact, this race is a kind of a return to my roots as a racing driver. I made my debut at the 24 hours of Barcelona in 2007 driving a Mazda RX-8 but I had not yet had the opportunity to attend the event since then. I wish to thank Leipert Motorsport and Lamborghini in particular for this great chance. I don´t know my teammates but, without any doubt, our driver line-up will be fairly competitive as Leipert will have factory support from Lamborghini. I´m looking forward to getting the best from my experience in 24-hour races such as Daytona or Dubai”, an excited Tutumlu explains.
For the time being, “we don´t know if our Lamborghini is an A6 or a SP2 car, because it isn´t a proper GT3 but it´s pretty fast! Let´s see what decision they take. We would need to fit the rules depending on the class. I have plenty of experience at this track and having the support of my family and fans, I will be doing my best. Unlike Dubai, where race marshals aren´t professionals as my accident earlier proved, Barcelona and its people border on perfection”, the Spaniard concludes.
