Ombra Racing will compete in the Pro Cup of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup this season, with the Italian team announcing its lineup on Friday.

Michele Beretta, Andrea Piccini and Stefano Gattuso will share the team’s Lamborghini Huracan GT3 in the five Endurance Cup rounds.

All three drivers have impressive GT3 experience, with Beretta coming as the reigning Silver Cup champion and Piccini with the 2012 Total 24 Hours of Spa win to his name.

Gattuso, meanwhile, won the 2015 Italian GT Championship and raced with Ombra at Spa last year in the Pro-Am class.

“We certainly expect a difficult, but exciting challenge,” said Piccini. “The Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup is one of the most competitive championships around and I am proud of defending the colors of an all-Italian team.

“For Ombra Racing it will be a new challenge, but I am sure that with the experience they gathered last year and the preparation of the past winter, we can perform well from the start.”
