The Factory Driver lineup for Lamborghini Iron Lynx is now complete. The finalized crews will compete in the 2024 editions of the FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

The two latest additions to the teams are Matteo Cairoli and Edoardo Mortara, who bring extensive GT racing experience. This week, the two drivers sat behind the wheel of the SC63, Lamborghini’s LMDh prototype, during the year's final test at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas.

Rouven Mohr, Lamborghini Chief Technical Officer, said: “The Austin test concludes the development phase of the SC63 ahead of the racing debut in Qatar. Overall, we are satisfied with the maturity of the project so far, which was demonstrated at the Daytona test where we set the fastest time on the first day. Of course, there is still a lot of work behind the scenes to be done before Qatar. I also want to take this opportunity to welcome Edoardo and Matteo, who complete our 2024 driver lineup, to the Lamborghini Squadra Corse family.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Edoardo and Matteo into our Lamborghini Squadra Corse family,” said Giorgio Sanna, Head of Motorsport. “Both drivers have a lot of experience and bring with them not only impressive speed and professionalism to the LMDh project in FIA WEC and IMSA but also the opportunity to use them strategically in some of the biggest GT3 races and championships.”

Edoardo Mortara remarked: “I am super happy to be joining Lamborghini Squadra Corse, which is allowing me this incredible opportunity to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Endurance Championship, both of which I have wanted to take part in for a long time. It is a very proud moment for me, and I hope we can achieve some good results next season.”

“First of all, I am really excited to be here in Austin for my second proper outing with the LMDh car, and I want to thank Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Giorgio, and the Iron Lynx family for this amazing opportunity and for believing in me,” said Matteo Cairoli. “I am ready to give the best of myself next year. This is a dream I have been chasing for a long time and to do it with an Italian brand as an Italian driver has given me even more motivation. The aim is to learn as much as possible about the car for next year, but I am already pumped for the start of the season.”

Matteo Cairoli and Edoardo Mortara will join factory drivers Mirko Bortolotti, Andrea Caldarelli, Romain Grosjean, and Daniil Kvyat.
