Corey Lewis is set for his Total 24 Hours of Spa debut, having been confirmed as the fourth driver in Ombra Racing’s lineup for next weekend’s Belgian endurance classic.

The 27-year-old IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race-winner, who is part of Lamborghini’s GT3 Junior Program, will join Dean Stoneman, Stefano Gattuso and Denis Dupont in the Italian squad’s Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo that will compete for Silver Cup honors.

A total of 13 Silver Cup entries are registered in the 73-car overall field for the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup and Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli round.

The team is coming off a massive accident by Gattuso at Eau Rouge in the Spa Test Days earlier this month that destroyed its primary chassis, which has since been replaced.

Lewis, who has been Paul Miller Racing’s third driver in the IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup races, also currently leads the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Pro standings alongside Richard Antinucci in a Change Racing-entered Lamborghini.

Other notable Americans set to tackle the race for the first time include BMW factory driver John Edwards, current IMSA LMP2 points leader Matt McMurry and accomplished gentleman driver Mike Hedlund.
