Lamborghini Squadra Corse has confirmed the driver pairings for its two Grasser Racing Team-run Huracan GT3 cars that will debut in this year’s Blancpain Endurance Series.

Fabio Babini, Jeroen Mul and American Andrew Palmer will pilot the No. 19 car, with the No. 63 Huracan GT3 to be driven by Adrian Zaugg, Mirko Bortolotti and Giovanni Venturini.

Both cars will compete in the Pro Cup class, which will fight for overall honors in the hotly contested five-round European championship.

The factory effort, announced last month, will mark the first official entry for the Italian manufacturer with its all-new, Dallara-built GT3 car.

Babini and Zaugg have already been part of the car’s development as official Squadra Corse test drivers, while Bortolotti was recently appointed as a factory driver.

Mul, Palmer and Venturini, meanwhile, are part of Lamborghini’s GT3 Junior program.

The Blancpain Endurance Series kicks off at Monza on April 11-12.

      The drivers on the far left and far right of the picture are Edoardo Piscopo and Milos Pavlovic respectively. They are official test drivers for Lamborghini Squadra Corse this year.

    April cannot come soon enough! I can’t wait to see what all of these new Pro lineups will do, and 2016 when the new batch of GT3 cars come it’s gonna be even more amazing
