TR3 Racing will step up to the Pro class of Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS for this weekend’s round at Sebring International Raceway with the addition of Dennis Lind to the driving lineup.
The ex-Lamborghini factory driver and World Final champion will join Giacomo Altoe in the No. 9 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo, replacing the previous Pro-Am lineup of Altoe and Martin Fuentes.
“We’re happy to be back in the pro class for the first time since 2018 with Ferrari,” said team manager Gregory Romanelli.
“We had a pretty successful run and both 2017 and 2018 being the first time running in the pro category. We are here this weekend at our home track, ready to prove what we are capable of with a Lamborghini.”
Lind, who had served as a Lamborghini factory driver from 2018-2020, is set for his series debut. The 28-year-old Dane is the nephew and cousin of Jan and Kevin Magnussen.
“I’ve just arrived in America, and it’s going to be cool driving for TR3 Racing,” said Lind.
“It’s going to be a first, racing GT3s stateside, but I’m very confident after meeting the team and also knowing my teammate for the weekend that it will be a success.
“I’m super excited for it; hopefully, we can bring back some big medals.”
Altoe currently sits seventh in the Pro-Am standings, which he will not score points towards this weekend.
“I’m really excited to be racing in Sebring,” said Altoe. “It will be my first time at that track, and first time this season with TR3 in a Pro car with Dennis Lind.
“I know him very well since 2018. He’s a real professional and fast driver, so I’m really looking forward to this weekend.
“We will try to take the maximum out of it, and to do a great race in the home of TR3 Racing.”
The moving of TR3’s No. 9 entry means there will now be five Pro class entries for this weekend’s pair of 90-minute races.
