Villorba Corse will enther the new LMP3 class this season, with the Italian squad confirming Tuesday a single-car Ginetta-Juno for the European Le Mans Series.

The team has signed Italian drivers Roberto Lacorte and Giorgio Sernagiotto for 2015, as it takes its first steps of its new “Road to Le Mans” program, a program set up by Lacorte. The team will race under the Cetilar Villorba Corse banner in 2015.

“Thanks to this significant step, the Le Mans 24 Hours is closer than ever before. It is a honour to be on this road with Cetilar Villorba Corse,” Lacorte said.

“The European Le Mans Series will be a hard training season that will strongly involve team and drivers towards the only goal of doing a good job. I thank my teammate and our team principal Raimondo Amadio who has welcomed this challenge with so much passion since the start.”

“The class is attracting high profile teams and it is a privilege to be able to welcome Villorba Corse, one of GT racing’s most successful teams, into the Ginetta fold,” Ginetta’s Lawrence Tomlinson commented on the agreement.

Team principal Raimondo Amadio is looking forward to the new season, which will also see the continuation of the team’s GT program.

“This prototype program brings great motivation inside our whole structure. It represents a firm step towards consolidation and diversification of our sporting activities.”

“I’m happy to start from a brand new category such as LMP3 which I believe is perfect to start a process that will see us racing in the most important endurance events also with Sport Prototype cars. To take part in the ‘Road to Le Mans’ project alongside so determined people and companies represents a further incentive to do well.”
