Blau Motorsport Secure Double Win in Brazilian GT with Lamborghini
Sant'Agata Bolognese, 09 May 2013. Following the launch of its new Squadra Corse motorsport proposition, and the apointment of Max Welti as Lamborghini's new Head of Motorsport, various venues around the world have been bringing alive the new Lamborghini philosophy of active participation in all levels of motorsport.
One of the most successful results last weekend was recorded by the Blau Motorsport team in São Paulo, contesting the first round of the 2013 Gran Turismo Campeonato Brasileiro on the Anhembi street circuit, a prelude to the São Paulo Indy 300. The team raced in a 2013-specification Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 FL2.
The pairing of Khodair & Hahn managed to claim both pole positions, win both races, and lead from start to finish in Saturday's 30 lap race by a margin of almost a minute over their nearest Audi rivals and close out their weekend with a second victory on Sunday. The crew managed to maintain their lead through the driver change-overs without relinquishing their lead.
Marcelo Hahn reflected after the race, "Our Lamborghini was wonderful! We had a perfect weekend of racing, our team worked very effectively and my co-driver was very good out there. Taking the early lead in the series is important, as we fully intend to be champions this year.
Hahn and Khodair have both previously claimed the runner's up position in the Gran Turismo Campeonato Brasileiro series and have made plain their committed intent to secure the title this year. While this remains a key focus, Allam will be pursuing the Brazilian GT title as one of four motorsport series he will be contesting in 2013, including the Copa NEXTEL Stock Car which he will be contesting against the talents of drivers such as Rubens Barrichello, as well as competing in the FIA GT Series.
The next round of the Gran Turismo Campeonato Brasileiro takes place on June 22/23 at the Autódromo Internacional de Curitiba, in Pinhais.
