Lamborghini has confirmed that its longtime head of motorsport, Giorgio Sanna, has departed the company with immediate effect.

Rouven Mohr, Lamborghini’s chief technical officer, has been appointed the new head of motorsport on an interim basis.

The news, confirmed by the Italian manufacturer on Thursday morning, comes after Sanna was not present at the competition debut of the Lamborghini SC63 earlier this month in Qatar due to “personal reasons” according to a Lamborghini spokesperson.

A reason for Sanna’s departure has not been given.

Sanna, a former race car driver turned test driver for Lamborghini, was appointed head of motorsport in 2015 and has largely been credited for helping take Lamborghini Squadra Corse to its current position within the motorsport world today.

It includes bumper grids in the single-make Lamborghini Super Trofeo series in Europe, North America and Asia, an expansive global customer program with the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO2 as well as the recently launched SC63 LMDh car, which is making its IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship debut in this weekend’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

Sanna’s exit marks the second high-level motorsport departure within Lamborghini in the last six months after Lamborghini North America senior motorsports manager Chris Ward left the company in October, in a position that has yet to be filled.

Ward has since moved on to become President of IMSA-owned Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR),
