Precision Performance Motorsports has completed the remainder of its lineup for this weekend’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America season-opener at Mid-Ohio, with Brandon Gdovic, Shinya Michimi, Dylan Murcott and Patrick Liddy.

The four drivers join the previously confirmed Shea Holbrook and Martin Barkey at the wheel of the the team’s three Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evos.

The Rick Gdovic-owned operation makes the transition to sports car racing full-time, after closing its NASCAR operations in favor of the single-make championship this year.

For 26-year-old Brandon Gdovic, a Lamborghini Squadra Corse Young Driver, Mid-Ohio will mark the culmination of an off-season transformation for the North Carolina-based squad.

“I look forward to getting back in the car after spending the last six months working with the team on the Lamborghinis,” said Brandon.

“We now have a full-time effort on the sports car side of racing similar to what we had in NASCAR and should see a significant increase in performance this year. I am definitely excited to drive with Shinya and looks like we will have a good field of Pro drivers at Mid-Ohio.”

2016 Super Trofeo North America champion Michimi will join Gdvoic behind the wheel of the Pro class Lamborghini, after being forced to take a year off.

“I am glad to be back in a race car and really looking forward to trying out the new Huracan Super Trofeo Evo updates,” Michimi said. “There may be a bit of a learning curve, but I am really looking forward to the challenge.”

Reigning IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge GS champion Murcott, plus Liddy, will share driving duties of the No. 47 Lamborghini, which will compete for Pro-Am class honors. 

“I am very grateful to get back behind the wheel for this week’s upcoming races at Mid-Ohio”, said Murcott. “It’s certainly been a long off season, but I’m ready to get back to it. I am very excited to join Precision Performance Motorsports team as I know they provide great cars and a very professional crew at the race track.”

Team manager Sonny Voelker added: “We have pretty high expectations about our program but we’re going to stay grounded in our approach. 

“I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work for such a solid organization, led by Rick Gdovic.  We have worked hard preseason and are ready to get racing.”
