Jean-Charles Perrin, Harald Schlotter, Adrian Watt, Reinhard Kofler and Ernst Kirchmayr will pilot one of the two Lamborghini Gallardo FL2s in this year’s race, with the team looking to potentially take on a full season of the new FIA-recognized 24H Series.

While the team’s 2015 program is not 100 percent finalized, team principal Ingo Leipert said multiple options are being explored.

“Discussions are ongoing about our plans for 2015,” Leipert told Endurance-Info. “What is certain is that we’ll run again in Lamborghini Super Trofeo [Europe] with between two to four cars, with both the Gallardo and new Huracan.

“Regarding the GT3 program, racing in the 24H Series is again on the menu because it is a championship that perfectly suits the team.

“In parallel, a presence in International GT Open is not excluded.”

Leipert has also not rules out competing in the 24 Hours of Spa as well, with the team having two Gallardo FL2 chassis.

Nothing is planned in the short-term with the Lamborghini Huracan GT3, as the all-new Italian sports car is not expected to contest a full championship in 2015, with customers only expected to take delivery of the Dallara-built cars over the course of this year.
